2012 ACC Football Standings: Florida State, Georgia Tech both lose before title game

Mike Ehrmann

Both of the teams in next week's ACC Championship Game dropped their final game of the season, and although the rivalry losses sting, they'll both take the field with a chance at a BCS berth next week.

Rivalry week was not kind to the ACC, as all four teams playing out-of-conference games - including both teams set to appear in next week's conference championship game - lost in the final week of the regular season.

Florida State blew a lead by allowing 24 fourth-quarter points to Florida and Georgia Tech was blown out by Georgia, sending both squads into the ACC Championship game on a sour note. Clemson's game against South Carolina went no better, as they lost 27-17 to South Carolina.

Miami's win over Duke technically gives them a share of the Coastal Division, although Georgia Tech is the only eligible team of the three sitting at 5-3 in conference. Virginia had the chance to play the spoiler in a lost season by preventing Virginia Tech from bowl eligibility, but the Hokies won 17-14 on the strength of a last-second field goal by Cody Journell. Maryland could have dropped into last place in the Atlantic Division, but Boston College lost the last game of Frank Spaziani's tenure to fall to 1-7 in conference play.

Here's a look at the full standings:
