Chris Graham: If Duke falters, the ACC Coastal belongs to Virginia Tech

It can be hard to make sense of the ACC Coastal Division, with five teams within a game of first place heading into the final two weeks of the season. But as the fog lifts from a wild Saturday, it’s beginning to come clear that this one is really a two-team race involving Duke and Virginia Tech.

Inside the Numbers: Clemson by 20?

Virginia has been more competitive the past couple of weeks, more than you might expect from a team reeling from a five-game losing streak. Even so, Clemson by … 20? That’s the early line on this weekend’s game in Charlottesville.


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.

Duke shocks #14 Virginia Tech, 14-10

Duke converted just one third down. It was a fourth-down conversion that sealed the deal against Virginia Tech. The Blue Devils took a 13-0 third-quarter lead in Lane Stadium and then held off a late Hokie rally to post perhaps the biggest win in school history, 13-10, on Saturday.

Duke storms back, stuns demoralized UVa., 35-22

Virginia led Duke 22-0 with 5:49 left in the second quarter. Games aren’t won and lost in the second quarter. The Blue Devils scored in the final minute of the first half to get back to within hailing distance, and then dominated the ‘Hoos in the second half in a 35-22 win that only adds fuel to the fire for a UVa. fan base that wants to see fourth-year coach Mike London gone.


Chris Graham: UVa. football is officially irrelevant

Duke has now taken five of its last six games against UVa., which is maybe not even arguably the worst program in the ACC now.
