We'd win 2-way tiebreakers over both Pitt and VT, as well as the 3-way tiebreaker. The keys were winning series over Pitt and NC State.

Non-Divisional Opponents

Two-Team Tie

(1) Head-to-head conference competition between the tied teams.


ND wins this tiebreaker against Pitt, 2-1.

(2) Head-to-head competition of the tied teams compared to common opponents with the highest overall conference winning percentage and continuing until one team gains an advantage.

ND wins this tiebreaker against Virginia Tech. The highest-ranked common opponent is Virginia; both lost 2 out of 3. The next 2 are Clemson and NC State. Both were swept by Clemson. VT was swept by NC State, but ND won 2 out of 3 to win this tiebreaker.

Three-or-More-Team Tie

(1) Combined head-to-head record among the tied teams (if common opponents).

(2) Head-to-head competition of the tied teams compared to common opponents with the highest overall conference winning percentage and continuing until one team gains an advantage.


Pitt was swept by both UVa and NC State, and didn't play Clemson. So ND wins this tiebreaker over both Pitt and VT, by virtue of the 2 wins over NC State.

Fun fact: BC would lose tiebreakers against both VT (who swept BC) and Pitt (who has 1 win over UNC while BC was swept).
