While UVa was busy picking up its first conference win of the year, how did the rest of the conference fare? The teams that should have won...won...without exception.

Wahoo fans, as you know, UVa picked up a conference win this week! While the path may be daunting, the road to bowl eligibility is still there. Considering such, let's take a look at how the rest of the ACC played out this week - which could certainly factor into UVa's division standing and bowl possibilties.

BC 17 - Clemson 34

Deshaun Watson played his best game of the year this weekend, throwing for 3 scores as the Tigers racked up 420 yards in their home victory. Clemson remains unbeaten, keeping their playoff hopes alive, while Boston College drops to 0-4 in the conference - but, on the bright side, they scored some points this week!

Louisville 21 - FSU 41

Louisville was leading at the half down in Tallahassee, but a 21 third quarter eruption led FSU to the eventual win. Dalvin Cook, who is still really really good, rushed for a couple scores, as FSU kept up with their unbeaten conference mates. Louisville fell to 1-2 in their conference.

Pitt 31 - GT 28

Pittsburgh also remained unbeaten in conference, as Chris Blewitt (DIDN'T BLOW IT, HAHAHAH) kicked a game winning late field goal to give the Panthers the road win. While Pitt remains atop the Coastal with UNC, Georgia Tech falls to a shocking 0-4 in the ACC and 2-5 overall.

VT 20 - Miami 30

The Hokies tried the whole QB carousel thing Saturday in Coral Gables. Shockingly, it did not lead to victory. Bye Felicia threw for 296 yards and 2 TDs for the Canes, who match UVa at 1-1 in conference, but sit at 4-2 overall. The Gobblers, on the other hand fall back to a losing record at 3-4 and 1-2 in conference.

Wake 14 - UNC 50

Yeeeouch. UNC scored 29 points in the 2nd quarter this weekend to cement an easy win over the visting Deacs. Wake now sits at 3-4 overall and 1-3 in the ACC, while UNC remains perfect in conference and 5-1 overall.

So - in the Coastal, UNC and Pitt sit at the top, while Miami and UVa only have one conference loss. There's plenty of ACC games to go, but right now, any of those four teams control their division destiny. If the Hoos keep winning, they'll make the race interesting, for sure.
