In the past three seasons, only one of the 18 BCS automatic-qualifying-conference champions (Ohio State in 2006) was undefeated in league play. And those expecting the winner of this Saturday's Miami-Virginia Tech game to become a permanent fixture in the BCS title chase should be aware that no team has run the table in the ACC since 2000, the longest drought among the 11 FBS conferences.
