  • The Hokies beat the then No. 19 Blue Devils last week in Durham, marking the first time Tech has ever beaten two top 20 teams on the road in a season. Wake Forest is still searching for its first ACC win. The Demon Deacons haven’t won since they played Army in late September.

Syracuse (3-7, 1-5) at Pittsburgh (4-6, 2-4)

  • 3:30 p.m. – ESPNU
  • Panthers by 7.5
  • Syracuse, and its two wins, won’t be bowling this season, but an upset of Pittsburgh on the road will ensure the Panthers won’t be, either. Pittsburgh must beat Syracuse this week and then Boston College next week to get to six wins.

No. 24 Louisville (7-3, 5-3) at Notre Dame (7-3)

  • 3:30 p.m. – NBC
  • Irish by 3.5
  • Louisville has completed its ACC schedule for 2014. After they play the Irish on Saturday, the Cardinals wrap up the 2014 regular season at home against Kentucky. Notre Dame lost a shocker last week, falling to then 3-6 Northwestern at home in overtime 43-40.

Boston College (6-4, 3-3) at No. 3 Florida State (10-0, 7-0)

  • 3:30 p.m. – ABC/ESPN2
  • Seminoles by 19.5
  • Boston College ensured that it will be bowling with a win over Virginia Tech a few weeks back. Now it’s trying to ensure Florida State won’t make the inaugural College Football Playoff. The Seminoles sit at No. 3 in the CFP rankings.

Georgia State (1-9) at No. 22 Clemson (7-3, 6-2)

  • 3:30 p.m. – ESPN3
  • Tigers by 40.5

Miami (6-4, 3-3) at Virginia (4-6, 2-4)

  • 7 p.m. – ESPN2
  • Hurricanes by 6
  • Miami led Florida State late last week in Coral Gables, but the Hurricane weren’t able to hold on. The Cavaliers, losers of four straight, need to finish with a win this week and another in Blacksburg on Black Friday to go bowling.
