ACC Power Rankings: Week 11

The ACC race is entering it's final few weeks. We know which teams have separate themselves from the pack. With that in mind, here are our ACC football Power Rankings entering Week 10 of the college football season:

14. Boston College Eagles (3-7, 0-7)

BC has a good defense, but the offense is just awful. The biggest reason for that is the Eagles are down to the their fourth quarterback, but no wins is conference play is what puts them in last place.

13. Wake Forest Demon Deacons (3-7, 1-5)

Wake seems locked into a three-win season, as the schedule doesn't get easier with Duke and Clemson coming up.

12. Syracuse Orange (3-7, 1-5)

Syracuse has now lost seven straight games, but have a great chance to pick up one more win on the season as they close with games against NC State and Boston College.

11. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (3-7, 1-6) 

This was supposed to be a season in which Georgia Tech competed for an ACC title. Instead the Yellow Jackets are fresh off losses to Virginia and Virginia Tech. How did they beat FSU again? 

10. Virginia Cavaliers (3-7, 2-4) 

Virginia knocked off Georgia Tech, but losses to Miami and Louisville have knocked them out of the bowl picture. They neeed to make a bowl game for head coach Mike London to keep his job, so it looks like there will be a new head man in Charlottesville next year.

9. North Carolina State Wolfpack (6-4, 2-4)

The Wolfpack started the season 4-0 against cupcakes Troy, Eastern Kentucky, Old Dominion, and South Alabama, but haven't played great since then. They gave Clemson a fight, but their only conference wins are against Wake Forest and Boston College.

8. Virginia Tech Hokies (5-5, 3-3)

The Hokies aren't the program they used to be and it's Frank Beamer's last season. The Hokies might be able to make a bowl game now that they've won their past two games, but they'll need to close the season strong against UNC and Virginia.

7. Miami Hurricanes (6-4, 3-3)

Two straight wins had this Miami team feeling good after firing head coach Al Golden, but a blowout loss to UNC shocked them back to reality.

6. Duke Blue Devils (6-4, 3-3)

Duke was in a great position to win the ACC Coastal, but has since lost three games in a row, falling to Miami, UNC, and Pitt - though that Miami loss probably shouldn't have happened. They're reeling, but should reach eight wins with games coming against UVA and Wake.

5. Louisville Cardinals (6-4, 5-2)

Louisville has played well at times this season, but they are a pretty average ACC team. They've clinched a bowl berth with four straight wins over Boston College, Wake Forest, Syracuse, and Virginia, and will close at Pitt before squaring off against Kentucky.

4. Pitt Panthers (7-3, 4-1)

Pitt's losses have come against teams with just two combined loses, but they still aren't a Top 3 school in the ACC right now. They held tough against UNC and Notre Dame before falling in both those games, but rebounding nicely with a 31-13 win over Duke on Saturday.

3. North Carolina Tar Heels (9-1, 6-0) 

UNC's season-opening loss to South Carolina hurts, but they've rebounded to win every game since. They close with road games against Virginia Tech and NC State, both of which are tricky but winnable.

2. Florida State Seminoles (8-2, 6-2)

Florida State still gets the nod over UNC because of the way they played against Clemson and responded by blowing out NC State. You could really flip FSU and UNC in these rankings, but I think the Seminoles have more overall talent.

1. Clemson Tigers (10-0, 7-0)

Keep it simple. The #1 team in the country has looked every bit the part.
