Biggest game: Clemson at Florida State, Oct. 29
Players to always watch: Besides the two superstars, you need to watch Lamar Jackson (Louisville's Michael Vick Lite) and Derwin James (the FSU defense's latest everywhereman).
Team nobody wants to play: Louisville
Coach who really needs wins: The ACC's pretty stable now, but BC's Steve Addazio spent a mulligan in 2015. A bad 2016 would mean a hot seat.
Don't be surprised if ... The ACC Atlantic, not the SEC West, is the first division to put two in the Playoff. See this argument.
Deshaun Watson might lead the country's best offense, and only Bama has a more proven roster.
Pat Narduzzi has Pitt's demons on the ropes, and James Conner's your new favorite player.
Frank Beamer retired, but VT still has a hell of a head coach anyway.
The Yellow Jackets nosedived in 2015. Was it a blip or the beginning of the end?
Expect drastic improvement and a wild new offense, even if this schedule makes it hard to notice.
The ACC just hired a ton of good coaches. How will Bronco Mendenhall stack up?
This offense cannot be worse than it was last year, but this defense cannot be as good as it was.
