CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - Defenses across the Atlantic Coast Conference are having trouble getting stops or keeping offenses out of the end zone.
League teams are giving up points and yards at their highest rate in more than a decade. And that's led to plenty of shootouts, including last weekend's Georgia Tech-North Carolina matchup that was the highest-scoring game in ACC history.
ACC teams are giving up an average of 26.2 points per game this season, the highest since teams averaged 26.4 points in 2001, according to STATS LLC. In addition, teams are giving up an average of 389.4 yards per game, the highest since at least 1995.
Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe says high-scoring offenses ``are here to stay'' and that defenses constantly have to catch up to new offensive schemes.
