ACC: Nonconference records update

As the ACC heads into the final week of the regular season, it does so with a 27-17 record against its nonconference opponents this year. Don't forget that 13 of those wins came against FCS opponents, but the good news is that the ACC didn't suffer any embarrassing losses to those FCS schools this year and finally went undefeated against them for the first time since 2008.

Still, there's room for improvement, and four games against SEC opponents this weekend to do it.

Here's a breakdown of how the ACC has fared against the BCS conferences and the independent schools heading into the last chance to make a statement:
