ACC Power Rankings Thursday. And just in time for some Thursday night ACC football action as Virginia Tech looks to regroup against East Carolina.

  1. Georgia Tech (8-1, 5-1 ACC)
  2. Miami (Fla.) (6-2, 3-2)
  3. Clemson (5-3, 3-2)
  4. Virginia Tech (5-3, 3-2)
  5. Boston College (6-2, 3-2)
  6. Duke (5-3, 3-1)

  11. NC State (3-5, 0-4)
  12. 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!
