  Virginia Tech fell to Duke 13-10, but the Hokies first conference loss hasn't derailed the team's ACC title hopes.  The win moves Duke to 2-2 in the league, with both losses in the Coastal. Should the Hokies win out, defeating Boston College, Miami, Maryland and Virginia, they would finish with one conference loss--and win all the tiebreakers. Only a second loss puts that in jeopardy. The Hokies senior linebacker says nothing changes despite the loss. They were going to have to win out anyway. He says the only thing this loss does is motivate the team to get back on the right track.  Here are the ACC standings after this weekend:
