We could concur with various pundits that it is odd to be this deep into the ACC football season (11 weeks) and be so completely unsure of even one of the teams bound for the “Dr. Pepper Bowl” (the ACC Championship Game).

It's a three-team race in both divisions heading into Week 12. North Carolina, Miami and Virginia Tech are the Coastal Division leaders, while Florida State, Wake Forest and Maryland lead the Atlantic. They're all two-loss teams.

The Coastal is fairly simple. If Tech wins out they win as they would hold tie-breakers over Miami and UNC. If UNC wins out, they come up short unless Miami beats Tech since the Tar Heels hold the tie-breaker over the Canes.

Over in the Atlantic, if Florida State wins out they should lock up a spot in the title game unless, of course, Wake wins out. They have BC and Maryland left. A Noles win over the Terps, knocks Ralph’s boys out obviously. If Wake wins out – the Deacs have NC State and BC left – they would win the tie-breaker over FSU based on their win in the Incredibly Ugly Pukefest Bowl of earlier this season.
