It’s Week 5 in the ACC and it’s sure to be a good one. Out of the eight games involving ACC teams this week, four will be nationally televised. At noon, you’ll have to flip back and forth between Notre Dame/Syracuse, and Miami/Georgia Tech on ESPN and ESPN2 respectively. 1-3 Notre Dame, fresh off a loss to Duke in South Bend, will be hungry for a win against the Orange. Also, don’t underestimate Georgia Tech at home, who is only a 7 and a half point underdog to #14 Miami.

Then at 3:30pm, our Heels take on the Seminoles on ESPN. Nobody is giving Carolina a chance down in Tallahassee, which might be just what the Tar Heels need to get a signature win at a key point in the season. Finally, #3 Louisville heads to Death Valley at 8:00pm to take on #5 Clemson in what should be an “okay” game, I guess. But really, do whatever it takes to catch that game. One of the best offenses vs. one of the best defenses squaring off on Saturday night, it’s overflowing with drama. It is also a great opportunity to scout out our future ACC Championship game opponent! Anyways, check out the Tar Heel Blog team’s picks for all eight conference games on Saturday:
