Shocker. I'm picking the Hokies.
ACC Championship: Virginia Tech 30, Boston College 17
And an equally biased preseason All-ACC team.

- Yeah, I picked Tech to win the conference and put
fivefour Hokies on the All-ACC team. In case you haven't noticed, this is a Virginia Tech blog. I like our team and I like our guys this year.
- A little caveat on Boston College. I think the Eagles can win the Atlantic if Mike Marscovetra wins the starting QB job. He was a guy I was very impressed with in the spring, probably more so than any other QB in the league.
- The Eagles also get the following teams on the road in the ACC: FSU, NCSU, Wake and Duke. BC should win at least three of those four and the game against FSU should be a good one. The tough games they have, except FSU, are at home. Plus, they get Duke and UVa from the Coastal.
- It's a tough year to be a bottom-feeder in the ACC. A lot of the games I consider winnable for Duke, UVa, Wake and NCSU are on the road. Maryland, meanwhile, gets Duke, Wake and NCSU at home.
