The Week 13 college football schedule features a somewhat unlikely showdown that will decide next week's ACC Championship Game matchup. Nobody is surprised to see Virginia Tech in that position, as the No. 6 team in the country is always one of the top teams in the conference. The surprise is that their opponent to decide their berth in the title game is No. 24 Virginia.
The Cavaliers have not experienced much success this decade, but under coach Mike London, they are coming on. They are 8-3 on the season and have won four games in a row, including a thrilling 14-13 win at Florida State last weekend. The winner between UVA and Virginia Tech will face Clemson in the ACC Championship Game, with a BCS bowl berth on the line.
Here is the complete Week 13 ACC football schedule:
Boston College (3-8, 2-5 ACC) vs. Miami (6-5, 3-4 ACC): The Hurricanes have declared themselves ineligible for a bowl game, and Boston College is obviously not going to a bowl, so this is just both teams playing out the string. (Friday, 3:30 p.m., ABC)
No. 13 Georgia (9-2) vs. No. 25 Georgia Tech (8-3): One of the nation's oldest rivalries. Georgia has won nine games in a row since an 0-2 start. (Saturday, Noon, ESPN)
Maryland (2-9, 1-6 ACC) vs. North Carolina State (6-5, 3-4 ACC): For more on this game, visit this StoryStream. (Saturday, 12:30 p.m., ESPN3)
Duke (3-8, 1-6 ACC) vs. North Carolina (6-5, 2-5 ACC): Big rivalry game! Wait, that's college basketball. (3:30 p.m. Saturday, ESPN3)
No. 6 Virginia Tech (10-1, 6-1 ACC) vs. No. 24 Virginia (8-3, 5-2 ACC): See above. (3:30 p.m., ABC)
Vanderbilt (5-6) vs. Wake Forest (6-5): I guess this is a rivalry game? (3:30 p.m., ESPNU)
Florida State (7-4) vs. Florida (6-5): This used to be one of the nation's great rivalry games. No more. (7 p.m., ESPN2)
No. 18 Clemson (9-2) vs. No. 14 South Carolina (9-2): This, by contrast, is a rivalry. (7:45 p.m., ESPN)
