Is this the week that the Hoos get back to their winning ways? You decide.
Post your picks for the 7 ACC matchups this week down in the comments. (Remember, we are picking against the spread; if you pick UVA in the UVA-UNC matchup, you actually picking them to "cover the spread" and lose by less than 13.5 points and are a good Hoo). Here's a link to last week's competition.
At the end of the season, the three commenters with the best records win "Keep Calm and Streak the Lawn" t-shirts! You need to pick 80% of games to qualify for that coveted prize.
No Thursday nighter this week, so picks are due at noon Saturday.
Here are our week 11 picks and comments:

|UVA @ UNC (-13.5)||UVA||UVA||UVA||UVA||UVA||UVA||UVA||UVA||UNC||UVA|
|FSU (-35) @ Wake Forest||FSU||It's getting really hard to pick against FSU. These big spreads on the road are scary...but you saw what happened to Miami and Clemson|
|Syracuse @ Maryland (-6)||Syracuse||In hindsight, there hasn't been much for Maryland to hang their hats on this season besides that shutout of West Virginia|
|BC (-24) @ NM State||BC||What is BC doing playing a non-conference matchup now! And why are they playing it in New Mexico! Strange.|
|NCSU @ Duke (-9)||Duke||The Wolfpack is probably the second-worst team in the ACC (yup), and Duke is....apparently amazing at football?|
|VT @ Miami (-6.5)||Miami||This will be a fun one, as 7-1 Miami hopes to hang on without star Duke Johnson. We'll see if the hapless Hokies can take advantage in Coral Gables.|
|Notre Dame (-5) @ Pitt||Notre Dame||Looks like Pitt is getting far too much credit, even at home, against a potential BCS team in Notre Dame|
|UVA @ UNC (-13.5)||UVA||This isn't fun anymore :(|
