The ACC has had some amazing games thus far at the halfway point of the season. The standings may not be what was expected before the opening week, but you never know how the last half of the season will play out. Who will be the first ACC champion?
Can’t Miss Games
Miami @ Florida State University – Week Five
Florida State University is 14-1 in the last fifteen games with the one loss coming from Miami.
Clemson @ Florida State University – Week Six
This game will have major conference implications as Clemson will look to show that they belong at the top of the ACC.
Notre Dame @ Clemson – Week Eight
In Daune Sammons’ senior season he will play at Death Valley one last time as a visitor.
Top Five Players
Jim Carr – Florida State University – QB
He has proven to be one of the top players in not only the ACC but the entire CSFL. As the head of Florida State University, they go as he goes.
Laci White – Florida State University – DT
Laci has made an immediate impact in her first season for the Seminoles. Leading them in tackles, tackles for loss, and sacks.
Jay Gates – Miami – DT
Halfway through the season and Jay is in contention for many school records.
Daryl Jefferson – Clemson – MLB
Clemson has surprised a few people this season, and Daryl has been the leader for this defense so far, in his senior season.
Jeff Knight – Clemson – DT
He is one of the eight players with double-figure tackles for loss and sacks.
Records in Danger
Clemson’s Career Tackles Record
This record could very well fall within the next two to three weeks, as Daryl Jefferson is seventeen tackles short of the record.
Clemson’s Career Interceptions Record
Thomas Lindsay needs four to take control of this record.
Florida State’s Career Passing Touchdowns Record
Jim Carr is eleven short of this record.
Florida State’s Career-Rushing Touchdowns Record
Anthony Younger needs four to hold this record.
Notre Dame’s Career Passing Touchdowns Record
Five passing touchdowns would put KyShawn Williams at the top of this list.
Notre Dame’s Career Tackles For Loss Record
Rocky Dale only needs nine for the record.
West Virginia’s Career Receiving Records
Tomlin Clementine, Jacob Tomas, and Jackson Hite are tied for the touchdown record with seven, it can easily flip a few times the rest of this season. Jackson Hite has 1,201 receiving yards and Tomlin Clementine has 1,074 receiving yards; the record is 1,434 receiving yards by Jacob Tomas.
Clemson’s Single-Season Sack Record
With nine more sacks, Jeff Knight would become the leader of this record.
Clemson’s Single Season Receiving Touchdown Record
Jrue Ward Johnson needs two touchdowns.
Miami’s Single Season Pass Rush Records
Jay Gates is two sacks and seven tackles for losses short of those respective records.
West Virginia’s Single Season Passes Defended Record
Jakoby Cobb is three pass defenses away from gaining control of this record.
The ACC will see two, maybe three teams in the Playoff.
The winner of the Miami @ Florida State University game will be the ACC’s champ at the conclusion of the season. I don’t see either team taking another loss after this game no matter the outcome.
Notre Dame will play better this half of the season and make a push for the PIT.
