ACC Power Rankings Thursday. And just in time for some Thursday night ACC football action as Virginia Tech looks to regroup against East Carolina.
- Georgia Tech (8-1, 5-1 ACC)
- Miami (Fla.) (6-2, 3-2)
- Clemson (5-3, 3-2)
- Virginia Tech (5-3, 3-2)
- Boston College (6-2, 3-2)
- Duke (5-3, 3-1)
- Florida State (4-4, 2-3)
- Wake Forest (4-5, 2-3)
- North Carolina (5-3, 1-3)
- Virginia (3-5, 2-2)
- NC State (3-5, 0-4)
- Maryland (2-6, 1-3)
- Miami gets back on track for surviving the scare in Winston-Salem. The Canes were down 13 in the fourth quarter and needed a Jacory Harris-led rally to win 28-27. Miami jumps 2 spots to claims the #2 spot this week, largely because ...
- Virginia Tech lost. Again. For the second straight week. College Game Balls reminds us that the Hokies haven't progressed year over year, as they have the same record on November 1 as they did a year ago. 5-3 (3-2 ACC). It's just a shame the Eagles didn't show up this year in Blacksburg.
- For pulling out the upset against the Hokies in Blacksburg, North Carolina jumps three spots to emerge from the BC Interruption Power Rankings basement and claim the #9 spot. Let's not get ahead of ourselves though, Tar Heels. Note you have the same number of wins against BCS conference teams (2) as 3-6 Purdue who is turrible.
- Virginia, NC State and Maryland all drop a spot. NC State is now 1-5 against I-A teams. The only thing keeping them above Maryland is that Maryland can actually do NC State one better in this category. The Terps are 1-6 against I-A teams. We have a new cellar dweller this week. Congratulations Maryland!
