2012 ACC Football Standings: Florida State keeps hold of Atlantic division lead

Mike Ehrmann

Florida State's convincing victory over Duke is enough to keep them atop the ACC's Atlantic division.

The Florida State Seminoles' convincing victory over the Duke Blue Devils again solidified their lead on the the ACC's Atlantic division, as their early season victory over the Clemson Tigers means a sturdy advantage on the division.

The Seminoles 48-7 blowout victory over Duke brought them to 5-1 in conference play, to go with their 8-1 overall record. If the Seminoles are to win the Atlantic Division, they would be faced with the Coastal division's champion in the ACC Championship Game during the regular season's final weekend.

Because the North Carolina Tar Heels are ineligible for postseason play, which includes a ban on conference championship games, Duke and the Miami Hurricanes are in prime position to fill that role as the calendar turns to November.
