Wednesday: Syracuse vs. Pitt, noon; Wake Forest-N.C. State winner vs. Duke, 2; Georgia Tech vs. Clemson, 7; Boston College-FSU winner vs. Virginia Tech, 9

Friday: Semifinals, 7 and 9

Saturday: Championship, 9

TV: Today's games on ESPN2 (FSU is also on Ch. 38); Wednesday's two early games on ESPN, two late games on ESPN2; Thursday-Saturday games on ESPN

The favorite: North Carolina is the top seed but coming off a tough game against Duke.

Other contenders: At No. 4, second-seeded Virginia is ranked higher than the No. 7 Tar Heels and many believe the better team, especially on defense.

Looking at Florida State, Miami: FSU is the 11th seed and unlikely to be a factor, but the Hurricanes have great guard play and could knock off one of the favorites. Neither Virginia, which won the regular season last year, nor Duke, which won the national title, made the 2015 ACC title game.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — It was still a game in the fifth inning when LHP Blake Snell walked the leadoff batter, then allowed a single. One swing by the Cubs' Ian Happ (22 home runs) could put a dent in the Rays' three-run lead.

    Blake Snell allows just two hits in pitching seven scoreless innings.
  3. Remember him? Numbers prove Ben Zobrist is one of greatest Rays of all time

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — The first foray back to the Trop by the best manager the Rays have had obscured the second return visit by arguably the second-best player in franchise history.

    Figures.

    Chicago Cubs second baseman Ben Zobrist (18) grounds into a double play to end the top of the third inning of the game between the Chicago Cubs and the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2017.

    One success story of this lost season is the emergence of LHP Blake Snell as the frontline starter the Rays projected. After a rough start and two demotions, he has been rolling, Wednesday's solid seven innings making him 4-0, 2.57 in his past eight starts.
