Another great week of action in the ACC and we saw another number 1 team go down (Duke). We also saw a previously winless Georgia Tech team take down the defeater of number 1 (Wake Forest) on Saturday. Duke rebounded from their mid week loss by pummeling Virginia and North Carolina is still hanging around the top of the standings after two road wins.

North Carolina

Virginia

Coach on the Hot Seat:
Dave Leito, Virginia

ACC Power Rankings
1. North Carolina

2. Duke

3. Wake Forest

4. Clemson

5. Virginia Tech

6. Boston College


7. Florida State

8. Maryland

9. NC State

10. Miami

11. Georgia Tech

12. Virginia

I went back and forth with the top 3 teams. I know Wake has beaten Duke and North Carolina, but they were both at home by slim margins. Wake's loss to Georgia Tech moved them down in my book right now. Things could and will change.

Why do I rank UNC higher than Duke? I think the teams are about even right now, but I think UNC will prove to better the team in the long run.


VT still edges BC for number five even with the Eagles win this weekend. The Hokies have more quality wins and lost by just 1 point in Chesnut Hill.
