ACC Power Rankings After Week 4
The ACC had a great weekend winning 3 big out of conference games over the SEC, Big 12, and previously unbeaten East Carolina out of Conference USA. Wake Forest still tops my rankings with big movers in Georgia Tech & NC State. I base these rankings on how these teams would fare against each other on a "neutral field".
1. Wake Forest
The Deacs have won three straight over FSU and can win in a variety of ways. A testament to the ability of head coach Jim Grobe.
2. Virginia Tech
The Hokies stay at #2 after a big road win at North Carolina giving them a firm hold on the Coastal.
4. Georgia Tech
The Yellow Jackets offense finally clicked and that meant 438 yards rushing against what was thought to be one of the best defenses in the SEC.
5. North Carolina
I still like the Heels this season. They play a very important road game at Miami this week.
The 'Canes are definitely showing improvement in year two under Randy Shannon and still have a shot to match my prediction for second in the Coastal
7. Boston College
9. NC State
What a big win for Tom O'Brien and NC State. Now if they can just keep this momentum going.
10. Florida State
A huge drop for the Seminoles this week. I will say that 7-10 right now in the ACC is very close and could see big movement next week.
