ACC Power Rankings After Week 9

Below the ACC Rankings, check out the combined ACC & SEC Power Rankings 1-24.

1. Florida State
The Seminoles appeared to have discovered their offense after some early season woes. FSU has a ACCCG in it sights, but has big showdowns with Georgia Tech and Maryland looming.

2. Virginia
What a climb from the depths of the ACC standings for Virginia! Ever since getting Cedric Peerman back, UVA has been a force in the ACC. Al Groh is in the running for a second straight coach of the year award after being left for dead in September.

3. Maryland
So maybe the Terps have achieved a small level of consistency by beating a team they were supposed too. Maryland is another mid-year reclamation project who earlier this year lost to Middle Tenn State.

4. North Carolina
I thought after Brandon Tate went down, UNC would have real trouble on offense. Shows how much I know as they exploded for 45 against BC.

5. Virginia Tech
The Hokies are reeling on offense even more so than before with both Tyrod Taylor and Sean Glennon going down in the loss to FSU. However, VT still controls their destiny in the Coastal Division.

6. Georgia Tech
The loud pop you heard may have been Georgia Tech’s ACCCG hopes popping along with the rest of the homecoming balloons in Saturday’s loss to red hot Virginia. The Yellow Jackets have to find a way to hold onto the ball Saturday vs FSU.

7. Boston College
8. Miami
9. Wake Forest
10. Clemson
11. Duke
12. NC State

I am not so sure top to bottom, the ACC isn’t the SEC’s equal at this point in the season. I mean Duke did go into Nashville and beat Vanderbilt. The SEC is clearly better at the top, but after LSU there is a huge drop off to the rest of the conference right now.
