ACC Coastal Division tiebreaker scenarios: Complete breakdown

Joe Raedle

Miami failing to upset Virginia kept the waters muddy.

What are the potential ACC Coastal Division tiebreaker scenarios? I break them down here to give you an idea of who Florida State will play in Charlotte for the ACC title, assuming it takes care of business against Maryland.

Miami goes if: if beats Duke in Duke. It's that simple. Granted, Miami will not be a big favorite at Duke, if at all, so it's far from a gimme.

There's also this little issue of Miami potentially self imposing a post-season ban in order to appease the NCAA so that the Canes don't get nuked for the Nevin Shapiro stuff. I'm not sure that Miami will do that. Refer to the far right column to see the implications of Miami doing so.

Duke goes if: it wins at Georgia Tech and against Miami. Tough ask there, as they potentially need to pull two upsets.

They also go if they lose to Miami, beat Georgia Tech, Miami self imposes and Virginia Tech fails to sweep BC and UVA.

Georgia Tech goes if: it beats Duke and Duke beats Miami, or if Miami beats Duke but self imposes.

Virginia Tech goes if: Miami wins and self imposes, Duke beats Georgia Tech, and Virginia Tech sweeps UVA and Boston College.
