For yet another year, UVA will take on the Hokies hoping to end their regular season on a high note. Elsewhere in the Coastal, other teams atop the divisional standings look to continue impressive winning streaks with one more hard fought victory on the road.
This one’s for the all the marbles. Well, not in terms of a division title or anything, but with a win, UVA would (finally) break the streak of consecutive defeats to Virginia Tech that their rival boasts. This year, the Hoos enter Lane Stadium as roughly four point favorites over the Hokies, who have lost four straight.

The Yellow Jackets struggled out of the gates, starting 2018 1-3. Since that mark, though, they have rattled off six wins in seven contests, including last week’s overtime victory over UVA. Still, while the team’s triple option has worked against divisional opponents of late, Georgia Tech will face a much bigger challenge in Athens on Saturday. If they could somehow shock Georgia on the road, it would do much to improve the ACC Coastal’s image.

#24 Pittsburgh Panthers at Miami Hurricanes:
Much like Georgia Tech, Pittsburgh overcame an early rough start to enter the final week of the regular season at 7-4 and an impressive 6-1 ACC record (their only loss in conference coming on the road to a lowly North Carolina team). Having already clinched the Coastal, Pittsburgh looks to continue to ride the momentum into Miami ahead of the conference title game where they’ll meet the Clemson Tigers.
