With two weeks to go until the kickoff of the 2017 college football season, the ACC has a lot to look forward to.
The ACC is expected to unveil a new title before kickoff of each game on Saturday night.
The league is set to unveil the 2018 ACC schedule on Monday, and it looks like it’ll have plenty of quality games to go around.
There’s no shortage of excitement ahead of this week’s games.
We’re looking at all the big games, from the ACC’s bowl game to the Sugar Bowl to the Cotton Bowl.
We’re also looking at some of the smaller bowl games that are set to be announced this week.
So let’s take a look at what to watch for as the ACC continues to announce new teams for the 2017-18 season.1.
Miami Hurricanes: Saturday, Feb. 6 at 4:30 p.m.
ET (ESPN)The Hurricanes have one of the most intriguing recruiting classes in the country.
They’re loaded with talent, from three-star defensive end D’Andre Johnson to four-star linebacker Deon Cain.
They’ll be facing a defense that has already faced four Top-10 opponents, but it will be the Gators who have the better resume.
The Gators will play in their home stadium for the first time in 2017 and have the potential to be one of a handful of programs to face Florida in the Rose Bowl.
The Hurricanes also have three-stars defensive tackle Jonathan Bullard and four-stars safety Travon Johnson as well as four- stars wide receiver Deonte Burton and four other defensive linemen.
If the Hurricanes are able to defeat Florida in their season opener, they’ll face a tough stretch of schedules ahead.
The only other time the Gators will have to play Miami is in the Sugar, which will be an interesting challenge.
Miami has a great chance to win the ACC Coastal, which is currently tied with Georgia.
The Orange and Crimson are currently tied for second in the Coastal standings and will play the Bulldogs on Feb. 20.
Miami will also face the second-ranked Tigers, who have only one loss to Miami this season.
The Tigers have only played the Hurricanes once in the regular season, in a 45-7 loss to Duke in 2016.
Miami will need to do much better against the Tigers in 2017, which could be tough.
The defense is loaded and there are plenty of talent in the secondary.
Florida State is also a team that will have a tough time beating Miami.
The Seminoles will have their eyes on the ACC Championship Game in 2018, which the Seminoles haven’t won since 1989.2.
Florida Gators: Saturday-Monday, Feb 10 at 4 p.p.m.-1 a.m., ESPN2Florida will host a game against Virginia Tech in the ACC title game on Feb 10.
The matchup will be a rematch of the 2016 ACC Championship game, with the Red Raiders coming into 2017 ranked 12th nationally and 6-3 in ACC play.
Florida will be looking to become the first team to beat Virginia Tech since it beat them in the 2011 Orange Bowl.
If Virginia Tech loses, Florida could face the ACC Champion in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
The Red Raiders are a great team that is loaded at both defensive end and cornerback, with three- and four, and the offensive line could be one that needs some work in 2017.
Florida has a tough schedule in 2017 that includes a road game against LSU, a road matchup against Georgia Tech, a home game against Clemson and a home clash against Notre Dame.3.
Virginia Tech Hokies: Saturday at 1 p.t.
ESPN3The Hokies will play Florida State in the second round of NCAA Tournament play.
The Hokies were ranked 10th nationally in the preseason and have been to the Elite Eight three times in the past four seasons.
The 2017-2018 season is also the final season for Virginia Tech to play in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
The Terps will be searching for their first ACC title since 2004.
If Miami loses to Virginia Tech, Florida State will have the opportunity to make its third straight NCAA Tournament appearance and its first since 2008.
If Florida State wins, the Hurricanes will have only lost twice to Miami since the Orange Bowl in 2016 and will face a rematch with Virginia Tech for the ACC championship.
Florida will need a big win to secure a trip to the ACC Title Game.
If Clemson loses to Miami, the Seminole will have an easy path to the Final Four.
Florida can still be dangerous offensively, with quarterback Jameis Winston, running back Dalvin Cook, and receiver Calvin Ridley all being elite performers.
The Florida defense is a solid unit and has three- stars cornerback Tristan Henderson and four guys with plus traits.
The offense should be better than expected with two top-25 talents, with freshman quarterback Treon Harris and senior receiver Dorial Green-Beckham all in the mix. If you
