King of the Hill: Cardiac Hill ACC Football Power Rankings (Week 5)

Peter Casey-USA TODAY Sports

Pitt pulled off a nice win in their first ACC game of the year in defeating Virginia Tech on the road. As you might expect, they were rewarded in this week's power rankings. Below is how I slot the conference's teams after this past weekend but let me know what I got right/wrong.

Ranking Previous School Record Notes
1 1 Clemson 4-0 Big win over a top ten Notre Dame team keeps them on top
2 2 Florida State 4-0 Another fairly unimpressive win over lowly Wake Forest
3 5 Duke
4-1 Narrow 9-7 win over Boston College moves them up
4 6 North Carolina
38-31 win over Georgia Tech moves them up
5 8
Pitt 3-1 Won over Virginia Tech on the road
6 12
2-3 20-13 win over North Carolina State moves them up several spots
7 3 North Carolina State
4-1 Fall below Louisville after head-to-head loss
8 4 Miami
34-23 loss to Cincinnati means a big drop
9 11 Syracuse

Drop one after loss to Duke
11 7 Georgia Tech
