    ACC football predictions and schedule for Week 8 of the 2016 season. With Clemson on bye, Louisville and Lamar Jackson will once again be front and center.


    Since ACC play started, a ranked team has lost each and every week. We saw Florida State and Louisville go down, followed more recently by North Carolina and Miami. Last week it was Virginia Tech.

    Only two ranked teams play in the ACC this week, and they have a real chance to break that streak. The Tar Heels will travel to Charlottesville to take on the Cavaliers, whom they have beaten six times in a row.

    Lamar Jackson and his wrecking crew will lead Louisville against the NC State Wolfpack. The Cardinals will look show that their flat performance against Duke was more an exception than the norm. NC State, on the other hand, will look to pull off the upset after falling just short last week and collapsing against Clemson.

    The ACC slate gets underway on Thursday night when Miami travels to Blacksburg to face Virginia Tech, as both teams look to rebound from losses in Week 7.

    Below is the complete ACC football schedule, as well as predictions for each game.
