Updated power rankings for this week.
Wake Forest moved up a couple of spots with their sixth win. No other real significant movement as teams either stayed the same or moved up/dropped only a spot.
Locally, Pitt slides down a spot after the Miami loss. Realistically, you can't drop them further than that since they own a win over Georgia Tech, the team below them. And no one should be taking Wake Forest's 6-3 record too seriously with their best win a victory over 5-4 Indiana. They have the padded schedule to end all padded schedules.
The previous week’s rankings are in parentheses and as always, let me know what I got right/wrong in the comments.
