CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- With about 12 minutes still remaining in the game, a sign appeared on the scoreboard: "Thanks for coming to the Dr Pepper ACC Championship game." It read like a farewell, and by that time, many of the fans had already begun to clear out anyway.
Virginia Tech has been in complete control of this game, and if there was any chance of an FSU comeback, it seemed to disappear with Davon Morgan's interception of E.J. Manuel. There's still about seven minutes remaining, but with FSU trailing 44-26, this game is over.
