Even after stealing a game from the number 1 team in the country, the Eagles have their work cut out for them if they hope to make this year's ACC Baseball Championship in Durham, NC. Here's a look at the current ACC standings:
7. N.C. State 11-13
8. Virginia Tech 9-15
9. Wake Forest 7-14
10. Boston College 7-16
N.C. State -- vs. Florida State, at Boston College
Virginia Tech -- vs. Clemson, vs. Georgia Tech
Wake Forest -- vs. Boston College, at Duke, at Maryland
Boston College - at Wake Forest, vs. N.C. State
You can probably write off Duke and Maryland. Both programs sit at 5-19 in ACC play.
Wake Forest has the easiest road of the teams currently in 7-10 place. The Deacons also have the most remaining games with an extra series in hand. Even with three games against the Eagles, Wake could easily beat up on Duke and/or Maryland and stay ahead of BC in the ACC Baseball Championship picture. Virginia Tech will have a tough go of things though with series against Clemson and Georgia Tech. If the Eagles can go 5-1 or 6-0 down the stretch, they may be able to jump the Hokies and the 'Pack to claim the eighth and final spot in the ACC Baseball Championship.
Certainly won't be easy, but at least the Eagles have a shot with just two series remaining.
