Coaches in the Atlantic Coast Conference are dealing with a different foe this season — conditioning. The lack of a spring practice opportunity and summer workouts have left some teams showing the signs. Virginia Tech’ jumped out to a 17-0 lead against N.C. State midway though the first quarter last week and coach Justin Fuente says his team looked gassed. Duke led Virginia 20-17 entering the fourth quarter but gave up 21 unanswered points to lose its third straight.
