at No. 10 Georgia Tech 30, Wake Forest 27 (OT): Josh Nesbitt scored on a three-yard run in overtime after the Yellow Jackets pulled off a gutsy play on fourth down. Jonathan Dwyer rushed for a career-best 189 yards and went over 1,000 for the season. After the defense stifled Wake Forest on the first possession of OT, forcing a field goal, Georgia Tech drove to the five-yard line, where it converted a fourth-down play to set up the winning run.

at No. 16 Miami 52, Virginia 17: Graig Cooper rushed for a career-best 152 yards and a touchdown, Damien Berry ran for a pair of second-half scores and the Hurricanes cruised. Thearon Collier had a 60-yard punt return for the go-ahead touchdown.

at Clemson 40, Florida State 24: C.J. Spiller had a career-high 165 yards rushing and his 20th touchdown of at least 50 yards and the Tigers took a step toward the ACC title by defeating the Seminoles.

at North Carolina 19, Duke 6: Ryan Houston ran for a career-high 164 yards and Jheranie Boyd scored the clinching touchdown midway through the fourth quarter for the Tar Heels. The Blue Devils had only 125 yards in total offense.

at North Carolina State 38, Maryland 31: Russell Wilson threw for three touchdowns and ran for another, and the Wolfpack ended a four-game losing streak.
