The Atlantic Division is one of the most competitive divisions in college football and there’s no doubt the conference is looking to be a dominant force in the conference.
There’s no question the Atlantic is loaded with talent, but there are a few teams that are on the verge of taking a step back.
The ACC will likely finish with the top two teams in the division with Clemson and Virginia Tech, but that’s still a huge step down for the ACC from the year before when Clemson and Georgia Tech went unbeaten.
Another big step down will come from the ACC Coastal Division, where Miami will be in its first year without the services of defensive end Koa Misi.
As the conference’s best defense, the Hurricanes should have enough talent to be in the conversation for the top spot, but Miami may not be ready to contend for the division title.
While it will be difficult for Miami to win this division, it will likely be a very close race.
The Hurricanes should finish ahead of Clemson and the Atlantic, which will put them in a position to win it all.
A few teams in this division will be looking to improve their record this year and will have to take the ACC East title.
Miami has to improve to a level that can win it, and if they don’t, they could miss out on a top-three seed and potentially the division championship.
Florida State, Notre Dame, Clemson and Clemson will all be in contention for a division title, and they’ll be looking for the conference title.
The Seminoles have a big advantage going into the ACC championship game, and that’s going to help them get into the postseason.
Clemson and Virginia will be two of the teams that have been on the rise in the ACC.
Clemson is the only team that hasn’t lost a game this season and has had a dominant schedule.
Virginia Tech has been one of college football’s most dominant teams this year, but the Hokies have struggled against top teams and will need to come back stronger against Miami.
One of the ACC’s best teams has gone down and the ACC will be searching for a new leader.
Miami has had some of its best performances in the Big Ten Conference, and the Hurricanes will be hoping that they can find a way to improve in conference play.
All of these teams will have their chances to be dominant this year.
No matter which team gets into the playoffs, it’ll be tough for the other teams to keep up with the teams from the top of the division.
If Miami gets into a division championship game and finishes third in the Atlantic and wins the ACC title, it could take the entire conference.
There are a lot of unknowns for the rest of the conference, but it’s going a long way to determining the conference championship.
