Which team is the favorite now in the ACC's Atlantic Division?

Down in Raleigh, N.C., on Thursday night, North Carolina State earned the signature win of the Coach Tom O’Brien era, beating a strong Florida State team, 28-24. This one could have gone either way. Quarterback Christian Ponder fumbled the ball late in the game and deep in N.C. State territory while his tight end was wide open in the end zone.

Now everyone except Virginia Tech has an ACC loss. More important from Maryland’s perspective, this Atlantic Division race is wide open. And the Terrapins will have opportunities, probably televised opportunities, against FSU and N.C. State at home to close the regular season. That fact underscores the importance of Saturday’s game against Wake Forest, which Coach Ralph Friedgen acknowledges is a very, very, very big game.

Here is a look at the contenders in the Atlantic and the remaining conference games:
