UNDATED (AP) — Surprising Duke and Pittsburgh will be playing for improved bowl positioning when they meet Saturday.

They’ll have to find a new formula against the Panthers, who have won 10 of the last 11 meetings.

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Miami first-year coach Mario Cristobal knows that No. 9 Clemson is the ACC program he’s got to chase down. Cristobal say the Tigers have a culture of success that’s put them on top of the conference. Clemson is seeking its fourth undefeated ACC regular season since 2015. The Tigers have also won 39 in a row at home, a streak that began in November 2016. Miami has had its struggles in Cristobal’s debut season. Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said the Hurricanes have the pieces in place to get back toward the top. The two teams play Saturday.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Coach Mike Norvell has been building a culture of embracing hard work at Florida State, and the No. 19 Seminoles are delivering the kind of progress he envisioned. Florida State won three games in 2020,  his first year, and five in 2021. After a three-game midseason skid this year, the Seminoles have won three straight, including a 42-point rout of rival Miami and a 38-3 beatdown of Syracuse last Saturday night to finish Atlantic Coast Conference play at 5-3. It’s the most league wins for the program since 2016. The Seminoles will chase their eighth win of the season on Saturday against Louisiana.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — No. 18 Notre Dame has won 27 straight regular-season games against the ACC. On Saturday, the Fighting Irish can extend that streak Saturday when they host Boston College.

The Eagles have the worst rushing offense in the Bowl Subdivision and their starting quarterback has been injured.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Coach Mack Brown had been clear he didn’t want to talk about various scenarios for his North Carolina team to clinch its Atlantic Coast Conference division title, only winning. The 13th-ranked Tar Heels have done that and secured a spot in the league championship game. It sets up a new challenge entering Saturday’s home game against Georgia Tech: Focus on the task at hand with so much ahead. The Tar Heels (9-1, 6-0 ACC) clinched the division race with last weekend’s win at Wake Forest, capping the first 6-0 season road record in program history. Now they’re back home for the final two games, the first coming against the Yellow Jackets (4-6, 3-4) before hosting the Wolfpack as they try to reach 10 wins for the first time since 2015.
