League swaps: ACC's best would dominate Big Ten

Clemson and Florida State appear to be legit CFP contenders. But how would the ACC's elite teams fare in the other Power 5 conferences? Quite well, actually... especially in the Big Ten.

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

New Virginia Tech coach Justin Fuente announced another classy gesture in continuing Frank Beamer's legacy at the school. Each week, a special teams player will wear Beamer's No. 25 as a tribute to the groundbreaking work he did with that unit during his Virginia Tech career. "When opposing coaches and fans hear the term Hokies, the first thing that pops into many of their minds is blocked punts and big plays in the kicking game," Fuente said. "Coach Beamer revolutionized the college game by putting such a priority on special teams. With his blessing, we'll honor a player every week and pay homage to the tradition of excellence at Virginia Tech."
