King of the Hill: Cardiac Hill's ACC Power Rankings (Week 2)

Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports

Every team in the ACC won this week, with the exception of Boston College, who Pitt defeated on Friday. That doesn't mean there wasn't a little bit of movement in this week's power rankings, though.

Some teams just looked a little more impressive, so this is how I see things after the action in Week 2 over the weekend.

1. Florida State - The obvious choice. Obviously.

2. Virginia Tech - Statement win at Ohio State means they deserve to move up.

3. Louisville - Blowout win against Murray State, but the Hokies' big game keeps them at No. 3.

4. Duke - Comfortable road win over Troy, but the Hokies and Cardinals looked more impressive - so they drop.

5. Clemson - Blowout win this week vs. South Carolina State, but they still have the 24-point loss to Georgia hanging over their heads.

6. Pitt - Move ahead of North Carolina for looking more impressive on the road against an ACC team than the Tar Heels did at home against a Mountain West team.

7. North Carolina - At 2-0 after beating San Diego State, still an ACC darkhorse of sorts.

8. Miami - Hurricanes bounced back in a big way after embarrassing loss to Louisville with dominant win over Florida A&M.

9. Georgia Tech - Struggled early for second straight game, but win over Tulane still makes them 2-0.

10. Virginia - Win over Richmond moves them up a slot.

11. Boston College - Loss to Pitt drops them a few positions.

12. North Carolina State - 2-0, but not impressive in either game vs. Georgia Southern or Old Dominion.

13. Syracuse - On a bye this week after beating Villanova by a single point last week.

14. Wake Forest - Win over Gardner-Webb this week can't get the out of the basement.
