From Heather Dinich of ESPN:

Well, let’s take a closer look at the schedules and narrow down which programs have the best shot, starting with the most likely team:

1. Florida State

2. Clemson

The lineup: North Carolina, at Georgia Tech, open, Wake Forest, at NC State, at South Carolina

The analysis: The next two weeks will be the most difficult for Clemson and determine whether or not the Tigers will remain a top 10 team in the BCS Standings. At the same time, though, Clemson’s most challenging half of the season is behind it. Now it’s more a matter of how they handle success and prepare each week as a national title contender. The team most likely to ruin Clemson’s undefeated streak will be Georgia Tech. Having seen both teams live, though, Clemson looks better.

The prediction: Clemson will win the Atlantic Division, but it will not survive the second half of the season unscathed. Clemson fans are tired of hearing about the “same old Clemson,” but it took years for the program to earn its reputation as one of the most inconsistent in the country, notorious for losing to teams it shouldn’t, and it will likely take just as long to shake that shadow. Clemson will beat Georgia Tech. But it’s just like Clemson to lose at NC State.

3. Virginia Tech
4. Miami
