This isn't exactly a preview, because it doesn't come close to exploring every team in the ACC, but it's a solid high-level overview of the conference: http://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/24309760/college-footbal....
Before the start of the season, the Four-Letter has Virginia Tech playing in two of its five most important ACC conference games.
Sept. 3: Virginia Tech at Florida State
The Hokies have had a miserable offseason, with off-field issues, injuries and transfers on top of the loss of a host of veteran talent to the NFL. The Seminoles are turning the page on the Jimbo Fisher era, and while they're saying all the right things about Willie Taggart, there are obvious questions about how the transition will unfold. We'll learn a lot about the two teams most likely to challenge Clemson and Miami for division titles right off the bat.
Nov. 17: Miami at Virginia Tech
Last year's route by Miami marked a clear turning point in Coastal Division supremacy, but a lot can change in a year. Sure, the Canes are still the heavy favorite to win the division again in 2018, but going on the road to Blacksburg this late in the season will still be a huge chore, and it won't be surprising if this is a head-to-head showdown to effectively determine which team moves on to Charlotte for the ACC Championship Game.
The Hokies are No. 5 in ESPN's league power rankings.
