2012 ACC Conference Championship Preview ACC Virginia Tech vs. Clemson Clemson comes into this game trying to continue their undefeated streak and reach their first national championship game under Coach Beazus. Standing in his way is the late charging VaTech Hokies. The Hokies are coming into this game hoping a big win over the #1 team in the land may be enough to catapult them into Coach Hokie's 2nd BCS game (his last was in 09). This game has some very interesting storylines. Clemson is a statistical monster. They run a very balanced attack but all season they've relied heavily on QB Kyle Parker, their leading heisman candidate to make big plays with his arm when needed. However, Parker is still injured and unlikely to suit up in this one. Clemson's backup has been able to win games while filling in, but he hasn't been as effective under center as Parker was. Thankfully, Clemson has big time playmakers at WR to bridge the gap. Clemson will definitely come into this one relying on their running game led by Andre Ellington to lead them to victory. If there's ever been a more contrasting style, VaTech comes into this team with the exact opposite of what Clemson's problems are. VaTech is healthy as star HB RW Sweetness has recently returned from his suspension and has looked like a monster. VaTech relies on two very capable QB's in Exom and Clayton so an injury to either isn't a big deal. VaTech also uses multiple RBs so their depth is an advantage. It's been an interesting season for VaTech as they've been inconsistent at times offensively. They destroyed rival UNC early only to get destroyed by FSU weeks later. As a result, Coach Hokie has gotten away from the run heavy offense and has become more balanced the past few weeks. Look for that to continue as the Hokies try to knock off the Tigers next weekend. Can't comment on the defenses yet. Will do this later. Should be enough to get some chatter going. Let's hear from the fans and what their predictions and analysis are. Also, Coach Hokie and Beazus, don't be afraid to post a little bulletin board material for the other team. Also, someone feel free to write up the SEC championship game preview. I'm biased so I can't do it haha.
