Team Comment
FSU Game against NC State is critical
Maryland Beat NC State and Gator Bowl is worst case scenario
NC State They must beat Florida State to share ACC title
Georgia Tech Dawgs and Noles are big games; must beat Duke
Virginia Cavs ending schedule will probably hurt bowl chances
Clemson Tigers had better win against UNC or there will be no bowl
Wake Forest Wake needs Clemson to slip up
Georgia Control own destiny; but Auburn looms large
Florida Gators turning it on? Better hope Georgia loses
Tennessee Vols need a win over UK or hello Shreveport
Miami Canes control their own destiny for national title
Virginia Tech Obviously must beat Miami and hope for luck
South Carolina Win over UF could = Citrus; Lose might = no bowl
Auburn Must beat Tide for trip to Atlanta
Alabama Can ruin Auburn's SEC title hopes with win
Vanderbilt Can ruin Florida's SEC title hopes with win; but not likely
Kentucky Too bad Cats are ineligible
Arkansas Hogs can still win West (somehow) but must beat LSU & State
Mississippi St Can only kill Ole Miss' chances for a bowl
Ole Miss Need to reverse late season losing trends to get in bowl
LSU West leader had better not slip against Bama or Arkansas
Duke Game with UNC will be ugly
UNC Game with Duke will be ugly
