Who has the initial opportunity to become the ACC's first bowl-eligible team?
Would you believe Duke?
Indeed, the upstart Blue Devils can punch their ticket to the post-season with a victory over struggling Virginia Tech at Blacksburg on Saturday.
Duke, which last played in a bowl game in the 1995 Hall of Fame Bowl against Wisconsin, stands 5-1 and, at 2-0 in the ACC, and is neck-and-neck with Miami (3-0) at the top of the Coastal Division.
The Blue Devils have wins over Florida International, North Carolina Central, Memphis, Wake Forest and Virginia. Their only loss came at the hands of nationally-ranked Stanford.
Like Duke, Clemson (5-1) has an opportunity to clinch bowl eligibility at the expense of Frank Beamer's Hokies, who will visit Death Valley for a noon game on Oct. 20.
Teams currently two wins away from post-season eligibility include Miami (4-2), Florida State (5-1) and N.C. State (4-2).
