The ACC still finds itself as the caboose in ESPN’s weekly ranking of the Power Five conferences. Clemson’s evaporation of N.C. State shows that the Tigers are the clear power in the conference and almost assuredly will win the Atlantic. Meanwhile, in the Coastal, while the Virginia Tech Hokies are in control of their fate, the division is wide open with a resurgent Cavaliers squad and a dangerous Miami-Florida team in striking distance.

Coach Fuente discusses the Hokies’ preparation this week.

Dax Hollifield has earned the No. 25 jersey for the upcoming match-up against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets! Well done Dax!
