ACC Power Rankings: Week 5

  1. Virginia Tech (4-1, 2-0 ACC)
  2. Miami (Fla.) (3-1, 2-1)
  3. Georgia Tech (4-1, 1-1)
  4. Boston College (4-1, 2-1)
  5. Florida State (2-3, 0-2)
  6. Wake Forest (3-2, 1-1)
  7. Clemson (2-3, 1-2)
  8. NC State (3-2, 0-1)
  9. North Carolina (3-2, 0-2)
  10. Virginia (1-3, 1-0)
  11. Maryland (2-3, 1-0)
  12. Duke (2-3, 0-1)

Notes

  • Again, the top three remain the same and are unlikely to change because those teams are unlikely to lose to anyone except each other. Power to the Coastal!
  • If Boston College had beaten Clemson, these power rankings this week would have been a lot simpler. Instead, BC looked terrible in the BC-CU game and Clemson has looked terrible in every game except that one. Still, we move BC to #4 with their win over FSU and Clemson down to #7 with a loss to Maryland.
  • Just like the top three, not much change in the bottom three. Maryland and Virginia jump Duke this week, however, as both those programs move to 1-0 in ACC play.
  • To be honest though, it is unlikely that Maryland, Virginia and Duke will ever crack the top 9 this season.
