Getting this up a bit later than I wanted but with the regular season over, I wanted to take one final crack at an ACC power rankings post before the championship game. With that said, here goes:

1. Florida State (12-0): Dominant against rival Florida

2. Clemson (10-2): Lost to South Carolina, but both losses on year to top ten teams

3. Duke (10-2): Beat North Carolina to reach ACC title game

4. Virginia Tech (8-4): Closed out season with rivalry win over Virginia

5. Miami (9-3): Scored 86 points in last two games

6. Georgia Tech (7-5): Tough loss to Georgia, but remained No. 6 with teams behind them losing

7. North Carolina (7-5): Duke loss snapped five-game winning streak

8. Pitt (6-6): Forced up only because Boston College lost to Syracuse

9. Syracuse (6-6): Big win over the Eagles makes them bowl-eligible

10. Boston College (7-5): Deserve to be higher but logistics of Orange loss meant they had to fall

11. Maryland (7-5): Finished strong with win against NC State

12. Wake Forest (4-8): Lost five in a row ... but to some pretty good teams (FSU, Duke, Miami, Vandy, Syracuse)

13. North Carolina State (3-9): Wonder how Dave Huxtable is enjoying that move

14. Virginia (2-10): Bad team, but played a difficult schedule
