ACC Power Rankings: Patiently Waiting for the Next Explosion

This was a low-key week, so expect it to get weird again soon.

1 Wake Forest (6-0) - Wake had the weekend off. Now they head to West Point to face Army. Wake losing to Army and then going on to win the ACC over a Pitt team with a loss to Western Michigan is absolutely the most ACC thing possible.

2 NC State (5-1) - NC State rolled Boston College 33-7. Now they face a bad Miami team.

T3 Pitt (5-1) - Pitt plowed through Virginia Tech 28-7 setting up the big game with Clemson.

T3 Clemson (4-2) - You’re probably wondering why I have Clemson tied with Pitt as opposed to Pitt over Clemson. Clemson’s defense is still incredibly nasty. Once again we’ll have to lean on them heavily to get a win.

5 Virginia (5-2) - The Wahoos blanked Duke 48-0. Now they host Georgia Tech.

6 Boston College (4-2) - Thanks for nothing BC. Really was hoping you could help give us a boost into getting back in the Atlantic Division race. Never rely on Boston. Eagles face Louisville Saturday.

7 North Carolina (4-3) - North Carolina held off Miami 45-42 and Mac Brown gave us some more post-game gold.

Manny Diaz looks like a dude after church who skipped breakfast and just wants to go grab some Bojangles, while Mack Brown is the old Deacon sitting there talking his ear off about the good old days.

8 Va Tech (3-3) - Virginia Tech was rolled by Pitt. The Hokies now face Syracuse.

9 Georgia Tech (3-3) - After a bye week, GT heads up to Charlottesville for a date with Virginia.

10 Louisville (3-3) - Louisville was also on bye. They now host Boston College.

11 Miami (2-4) - Woof. The Canes are 2-4 after a loss to UNC. And now a red hot NC State team rolls into town.

12 Florida State (2-4) - The Noles had the weekend off as well and now face UMass, whose only win came against UConn. FSU is most likely winning this but if they do not, I will probably have to seek medical attention from being unable to stop laughing.

13 Syracuse (3-4) - Does anyone want to crowdfund a billboard that reads “Dino Babers Iced His Own Kicker” and put it right outside the Carrier Dome?

14 Duke (3-4) - Duke mercifully gets the weekend off after losing 48-0 to Virginia.
