Clemson, Pitt and Virginia Tech have important season openers, and Florida State, Virginia and Virginia Tech could use a win in the regular-season finale to help sway recruits against a major in-state rival.

Here are 10 games involving ACC teams that could shape the 2014 recruiting class as well as classes to come.

1. Florida at Miami, Sept. 7
Miami has a chance to make a major statement here. With all kinds of offensive talent at their disposal, the Hurricanes will try to take advantage of a younger but talented Gators defense. Florida has done very well in South Florida this recruiting cycle, but with a win, Miami might be able to make a push for some recruits the Gators have by being able to point to a win in a head-to-head situation. Ermon Lane (Homestead, Fla./Homestead) and Dalvin Cook (Miami/Miami Central) are major targets committed to Florida.
