The Coastal Division race has come down to this, the final week of the regular season. Duke, the team that was picked by the media in July to finish last in its division, is one win away from finishing first. Duke already has clinched at least a share of the Coastal Division title. A win at North Carolina on Saturday and the Blue Devils head to Charlotte for the ACC championship game. A loss at North Carolina? Well, that’s where things get interesting.
We’ve got you covered:
What Duke needs: Beat North Carolina.
What Miami needs: Beat Pitt, AND a Duke loss, AND a Virginia Tech loss.
What Georgia Tech needs: A Duke loss, AND a Miami loss, AND a Virginia Tech loss.
What Virginia Tech needs: A win over Virginia, AND a Duke loss, AND a Miami win would create a five-way tie, which would send Virginia Tech to the title game. The Hokies also could get to Charlotte with a win over Virginia, a Miami loss and a Duke loss. Basically, Miami’s outcome is irrelevant to the Hokies’ hopes.
