The Opponent: Well, here we go again. As usual, the 2011 Battle of the Techs will go a long way in determining who will represent the Coastal Division in the ACC Championship game in December. This rivalry has had its fill of great moments, including the “Beat You in Your Own Uniforms” game of 2007, the “All The Way Turnt Up” debacle in 2009, and of course the “David Wilson Eats Chick-Fil-A on Sundays” spectacle last year. Hard to believe the two schools have met just eight times, not including the cancelled BCA classic back in 2000.
