It looked like Boston College might have won its last game of the season, as they'd struggled mightily since beating FCS Maine in Week 2, but a last minute score for Johnathan Coleman gave them their first win in their conference schedule.
Heading into Week 9 action, only two teams had yet to win their first game in the ACC: BC and Virginia. The Cavaliers, who were off this week, remain at 0-4, but Chase Rettig's last minute touchdown toss gave the Eagles a league win. Maryland is .500 in ACC play, but could be in trouble as their top four quarterbacks are out for the season, leaving linebacker Shawn Petty as the team's starting QB.
On the top of the conference, Florida State and Clemson rolled to easy wins over Duke and Wake Forest, respectively. Both have a loss in conference play and will fight for the Atlantic division title over the last few weeks of the season, while Duke is surprisingly still in the drivers' seat in the Coastal division despite the loss.
Here's a look at the full conference standings:
