Earlier this week, Boston College football coach Jeff Hafley revealed that 15 of his players are dealing with flu-like symptoms. Hafley didn’t name the players. Currently, the status of those players — who extend across multiple position groups — is unknown for Saturday’s matchup with Wake Forest.

If Wake Forest is able to win Saturday at Boston College, the Demon Deacons will claim the Atlantic Division. However, if the Deacs lose, that could open the door for either NC State or Clemson to come out of the Atlantic and play Pittsburgh for the ACC title.
NC State hosts North Carolina in Raleigh: kickoff is set for 7 p.m. on Friday. If NC State wins on Friday, and Wake Forest loses on Saturday, then the Wolfpack win the Atlantic.
Clemson is done with its conference slate. The Tigers are on the road to play vs. rival South Carolina, with a 7:30 p.m. kick on Saturday. If both NC State and Wake Forest lose, Clemson will win the Atlantic.
