The ACC was turned upside down on Saturday, when the Florida St. Seminoles, thought to be national title contenders, were upset by the N.C. State Wolfpack. The loss dropped the Seminoles to 2-1 in the ACC, and out of first place in the ACC Atlantic division.

The Seminoles trail the Maryland Terapins (1-0) in the Atlantic division, but also find themselves tied with the Clemson Tigers at 2-1. Florida St. destroyed Clemson in a contest earlier this year, and hold the tiebreaker over the Tigers.

The Seminoles will look to get back on track on Saturday, when they play host to the Boston College Eagles.

N.C. State, meanwhile, improved to 1-1 in the ACC with their win.

The Miami Hurricanes dropped a non-conference game to Notre Dame on Saturday, but remain atop the ACC Coastal division with a 3-0 record. The Hurricanes will continue ACC play on Saturday, when they host the North Carolina Tar Heels.
