Brad’s 2018 College Football Preview- ACC Predictions

Every summer since 2007 I have created an intricate set of college football predictions for each upcoming season.  This year is no exception, as I will be using my blog over the next few weeks to publish my 12th annual college football preview guide.  The records below reflect each team’s predicted regular season overall record followed by their conference record.  These records include conference title games for the two division champions but exclude bowl games which will be previewed later on in a separate column on this blog.  The team listed in bold font in each entry is my predicted conference champion.  Without further ado, here are my predictions for the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Atlantic Division
1 Clemson (12-1, 7-1)
2 Syracuse (9-3, 6-2)
3 Boston College (8-4, 5-3)
4 NC State (6-6, 4-4)
5 Florida State (8-4, 4-4)
6 Louisville (5-7, 3-5)
7 Wake Forest (4-8, 2-6)
Coastal Division
1 Virginia Tech (10-3, 6-2)
2 Georgia Tech (8-4, 5-3)
3 Virginia (7-5, 5-3)
4 Miami-FL (8-4, 4-4)
5 Duke (5-7, 3-5)
6 Pittsburgh (3-9, 2-6)
7 North Carolina (3-9, 1-7)


  1. I like their offense a lot, especially their quarterback play. Their offense was extremely potent at the start of the year last year, as they became only team in past year and a half not named Alabama to beat Clemson. The rails fell off at the end of the season because Dungy got hurt but if he can stay healthy this season they should have a special team.
