PREVIEWS

The Atlantic Division seems to be in control by Clemson again this season. The Coastal Division is a three-team dogfight between Virginia, Virginia Tech and Miami.

Clemson heads the conference and could likely win the national title again. Coach Dabo Swinney has a potent offense that is led by Heisman award candidate sophomore quarterback Trevor Lawrence. Travis Etienne returns as the primary running threat and will be the anchor on the field. The defense lost several players but that shouldn’t keep them from winning the conference.

If the Clemson Tigers have any competition it will come from the Syracuse Orange who is coached by Dino Babers and led by quarterback Tommy DeVito with seven returning defensive players. Mark you calendar for September 14th as Clemson and Syracuse will play each other at the Carrier Dome.

Florida State and North Carolina State will win plenty of games in the conference but look to be a tick behind the other two teams.

Coming through the Coastal part of the conference many believe it could the Virginia Cavaliers that come out on top. They will be led by quarterback Bryce Perkins and a stellar defense. Coach Bronco Mendenhall will need to find a way to get past their nemesis Virginia Tech.

The Hokie have beaten the Cavaliers every time since 2003. Head Coach Bud Foster wasn’t happy last year and looks to change some things this year. Quarterback Ryan Willis has a good group around him on offense.

Miami has one advantage and that is both Virginia and Tech will be playing in Hard Rock Stadium before a large partisan crowd. The Hurricanes have put their offensive hopes on new OC Dan Enos.

The defending champion Pittsburgh Panthers will see a decline from a year ago as they return on 10 starters with two of them rushing for 1,000 yards in 2018. Quarterback Kenny Pickett will better but has very little experience.
