ACC Conference Predictions
Updated: December 2018

 

Atlantic Division

Winner: Clemson
The Tigers return eight starters on one of the nation’s most prolific offenses and four starters on defense. One of those offensive starters is QB Deshaun Watson, a Heisman Trophy candidate, who passes for 4,104 yards, rushed for over 1,000, and accounted for 35 touchdowns. Watson will return WR Artavis Scott (93 rec., 901 yds.) and RB Wayne Gallman, who rushed for 1,527 yards and 13 scores. The defense finished 10th nationally in total defense last year after losing nine starters from the previous season. There is no reason why the Tigers cannot repeat as ACC champs and get back to the College Football Playoff.

Most Improved: N.C. State
The Wolfpack went 7-6 last season and head coach Dave Doeren is ready for his team to make its move. The defense returns eight starters and if they can figure out the quarterback position, the Wolfpack could pull some surprises. This is a team that went 8-5 in 2014 and started 4-0 in 2015. Sophomore Jalan McClendon could be the quarterback that takes the Wolfpack to the next level.

Biggest Disappointment: Boston College
The Eagles had the best defense in the ACC. They ranked first in every major statistical category and were among the nation’s best. In fact, Boston College finished first in the nation, yes first, in total defense (254.3 ypg). Head coach Steve Addazio welcomes six starters back on defense. The problem is on offense where B.C. is pathetic. Don’t expect that to change anytime soon. The Eagles will start another graduate transfer QB in former Kentucky starter Patrick Towles. The only place for the offense to go is up. Still, Boston College will disappoint in 2016.

Coastal Division

Winner: North Carolina
Head coach Larry Fedora loses QB Marquise Williams, but he has plenty of weapons returning on an offense that averaged 41 points a game. Mitch Trubisky will start at QB and will have RB Elijah Hood (1,463 yds., 17 TDs) and WR Ryan Switzer (55 rec., 697 yds., 6 TDs) to work with. Switzer is also one of the most dangerous return men in all of college football. The Tar Heels defense, much improved in 2015, returns six starters and will continue to get better.

Most Improved: Miami
The Hurricanes improved immediately when they welcomed former alumnus Mark Richt in as their new head coach. Miami returns nine starters on offense including QB Brad Kaaya who threw for 3,238 yards and 16 TDs last year. Running back Joe Yearby (1,002 yds.) is back and might not even start. Seven starters return on defense and the Hurricanes open with three very winnable games (FAMU, Florida Atlantic, Appalachian State).

Biggest Disappointment: Virginia Tech
New head coach Justin Fuente will find it very difficult in his first year in Blacksburg. He will have a first-year quarterback and an offense that must get used to a much different style. The bright spot is that Fuente will have eight starters on offense and six on defense returning in 2016. The Hokies defense allowed more yards, rushing yards, and points than it ever has during the tenure of defensive coordinator Bud Foster. If that doesn’t improve, Virginia Tech could be in for a long season.

ACC Champion: Clemson
The Tigers biggest roadblock is an Oct. 29 game at Florida State. Clemson is loaded, especially on offense. The Tigers scored 23 points on the Seminoles a year ago. Florida State wound up ninth in the nation in scoring defense (17.5 ppg). With their experience, Clemson can run the table in the Atlantic Division and will roll in an ACC title game rematch with North Carolina.
