Tudor's take: It's up to Wake

Unless you’re banking on Miami winning at Florida, which few folks are, what little remains of ACC pride and hope rides with Wake Forest in this test against SEC middleweight Ole Miss.

This will probably be one tough Houston Nutt team to crack, too. The Rebels piled up 41 points on a decent Memphis defense last week Quarterback Shay Hodge and running back Dexter McCluster had the kind of production long associated with Nutt’s primary yardage providers at Arkansas.

If the Deacons can’t make it happen, there’s a strong chance next week’s national polls will be completely void of an ACC influence. Something somewhere is bound to go right for the ACC. Wake 30-24.
