ACC title game prediction

There's only one this week, so the pressure is on.

For those of you who have been following my weekly bowl projections, you know I've had Virginia Tech headed to the Orange Bowl from the beginning. That pick isn't going to change this week.

The Hokies are on a 10-game winning streak, and what will give them the edge in this game is their defense, which has been a takeaway factory in recent weeks. Virginia Tech has had 12 interceptions in the past five games. The Hokies lead the nation in turnover margin at plus-16. Virginia Tech will force quarterback Christian Ponder into one more mistake, and this time, it will cost the Noles an ACC championship.

Final score: Virginia Tech 28, Florida State 27
