So, it all comes down to this. Florida State could have helped the Hokies out a whole lot by knocking off Virginia on Saturday night and helping VT clinch the ACC's Coastal Conference. Instead, now Tech has to travel to UVA on Saturday afternoon to take on the Cavaliers in a winner-takes-all game to determine who will face Clemson in the ACC Championship game. We're sure this wasn't the way VT wanted to do things. But we still think they'll come out on top when the stakes are the highest.—Chris Yuscavage
