ACC Rankings through Week 3
The Hokies have dominated their last two opponents and have a key road win at NC State. Big test this week versus Georgia Tech.
FSU avoided a potential landmine with a win at Boston College. They have the inside track to winning their division.
The Hurricanes rebounded with a big victory against Clemson. They have a somewhat easy schedule for the next few weeks.
The Yellow Jackets keep the momentum going with a win over UCONN. However, they may be without QB Reggie Ball at Virginia Tech this weekend.
Clemson could not pull a third straight fourth quarter comeback last week against Miami. This team has showed the will to win and will need it against BC this Saturday.
BC feels it outplayed FSU last weekend, but ended up with the loss. Now the Eagles must guard against a let down in a crucial road contest against Clemson.
The Cavaliers have not been overly impressive in the first two games, and don’t appear to have the talent to make a run at the championship game.
The Wolfpack need a victory against UNC this Saturday if they want a good chance at a bowl game this season. Defense looks strong, offense needs work.
After a 14-5 loss against Wisconsin, the Tarheels schedule doesn’t get any easier as they play at NC State this week.
Maryland is really struggling on offense-uncharacteristic for a Ralph Friedgen team. It may be now or never if a bowl game is to be played this season.
The Deacons finally got a win over East Carolina last week. Maryland comes to town this week.
Duke will be preseason number one in basketball this season without a doubt.
SEC Rankings through Week 3
LSU showed a lot of heart coming back from down 10 at Arizona State. Tennessee comes calling this week in Baton Rouge in what should be a great game.
The Gators pulled out the victory last week, but it proved to be costly. WR Andre Caldwell is out for the season and DT Ray McDonald may be out until November.
The Bulldogs continue to lay in the weeds as a sleeper in the SEC East. The running game is going and DJ Shockley has proved to be an adequate quarterback so far.
The Vols suffered a tough loss last week, but there is no time to rest as they travel to Baton Rouge this week. Tennessee looks to have decided on Erik Ainge as their quarterback.
Don’t look now, but Alabama better be on your radar as a team to watch out for in the SEC. The Tide dominated South Carolina in Columbia.
Auburn looks to have settled after a rough start to the season. The Tigers have another easy contest this week against Western Kentucky.
Vanderbilt is 3-0 and 2-0 in the conference. Can you say Vanderbilt and bowl eligible? Next two games are Middle Tennessee State and Richmond.
After a good showing against Georgia, the Gamecocks looked abysmal against Alabama. We should have known South Carolina was not as they showed against Georgia, but they are not as bad as they played against Alabama.
The Rebels missed a great chance to improve their bowl chances against Vandy last week. They have an uphill climb to a bowl game now.
Sylvester Croom’s team looks improved in his second year, but they have a long way go go.
The biggest disappointment in the SEC by far. The Razorbacks were embarrassed by USC last week 70-17. Of course, USC makes a lot of teams look foolish these days.
Basketball starts in less than a month.
