Miami, Virginia Tech ready to challenge in the ACC … nevermind

Earlier this week, I laid out the argument for how the ACC had not one, but three national-title contenders. Florida State is the obvious one, at #2 in the BCS rankings after its 51-14 demolition of then-third-ranked Clemson last week. But Miami came into the week ranked seventh, with a game at FSU next week and a game at home against #14 Virginia Tech, the other contender in my argument.
