THE EVER-ILLUSIVE DR. PEPPER BOWL

Starting with Maryland, North Carolina and Virginia: That brown chunky stuff on your football cleats isn’t crumbs from an early holiday feast. Well….Noooo, it’s puke. As in “puked on your shoes.” All three managed to play themselves out of the chase on Saturday.

Meanwhile over in the world of nice clean and not horrible smelling shoes, we have Virginia Tech, Florida State and Boston College. If the Hokies beat Virginia on Saturday in Blacksburg, they will take the trip to Tampa for the Dr. Pepper Bowl (the ACC Championship Game) on December 6 in Tampa, FL.

If the Hokies lose, Georgia Tech wins the Coastal division, thanks to the losses Saturday by UNC and Virginia.

In the Atlantic, if Boston College beats Maryland next Saturday in Chestnut Hill, the Eagles repeat as division champs and set up a BC v. VT rematch of last year’s Championship Game.

If the Terps win, FSU is the winner. Maryland usually comes back strong from tough losses. FSU has one game left, but it’s not relevant to the ACC standings.

Unfortunately, the Noles have a date next Saturday with one of the best teams in the country – Florida. Ouch.
