Virginia travels to Florida State, looking for a win to set up a showdown in Charlottesville with Virginia Tech for the Coastal Division title.

The college football weekend in the ACC, as it has so many times over the years, actually kicked off on Thursday night in Blacksburg when the Virginia Tech Hokies narrowly escaped 24-21 over North Carolina. The Hokies improved to 6-1 in the ACC, and maintained their lead atop the ACC Coastal Division.

The Hokies will win the division and clinch a spot in the ACC Championship game if their cross-state rival, the Virginia Cavaliers, lose in Tallahassee on Saturday night. Virginia is coming off a 10 point win over Duke and needs to beat Florida State to stay in the Coastal Division race. A win on Saturday will put the division crown on the line next week when the Hokies travel to Charlottesville. Kickoff at Florida State is set for 7:30 and the game will be broadcast on ESPN2.

The winner of the Coastal will face Clemson. The Tigers locked up the Atlantic division weeks ago and, along with the Hokies, are ranked among the top eight teams in the country. They travel to North Carolina State on Saturday to face a Wolfpack team looking to become bowl eligible in what could very well be Tom O'Brien's final season in Raleigh. Kick off is set for 3:30 and the game will be broadcast on ABC.

Elsewhere in the ACC, both Miami and Boston College will be featured on national TV as they travel outside the conference. The Eagles will face off against the only other Catholic FBS program, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. The game will be broadcast on NBC with kick off set for 4:00 PM. Miami will also travel out-of-conference, squaring off against cross-state foe South Florida. The Canes will be on ESPNU at 3:30.
