Big Four struggle to keep up in ACC football

There was nothing particularly special about North Carolina's Atlantic Coast Conference football title 25 years ago. The championship was their second in four years and gave the Big Four - the ACC schools in the state of North Carolina - eight in the previous 13 years. North Carolina State won the year before. Wake Forest was even in the mix, finishing at the top of the conference in 1970 for what still is the Demon Deacons' only title. Yet that championship for the Tar Heels gets more significant with each passing year: it's was the last outright ACC football title won by one of the Big Four. (Winston-Salem Journal)
