If there’s one rivalry in the ACC you don’t want to miss, it’s Georgia Tech-Virginia Tech.

Even though Virginia Tech has only been in the ACC since 2004, the game against Georgia Tech has developed into the best rivalry in the conference since 2000 -- the year the game was canceled after lightning struck Lee Corso’s car. No game has been more important to the ACC championship game, as the winner has gone on to represent the Coastal Division every year since the league was split, and the winner has won the past three ACC titles.

Georgia Tech won in 2006 and 2009, and the Hokies won in 2005, 2007, 2008 and 2010. And once again, Virginia Tech is on its way to winning the division, thanks in part to a regular-season win over the Jackets. It’s usually a close game, as the past three games have been decided by a combined 15 points. Both programs are the ACC’s winningest teams, regardless of division.
