Clemson (5-1 ACC | 6-2 overall)
Last: W 16-6 vs. Syracuse | Next: BYE Jeff's Take: The Tigers walked the tightrope again without Deshaun Watson. Since he went down, they’re 3-0, but haven’t won by more than 10 points.
Louisville (4-2 ACC | 6-2 overall)
Last: BYE | Next: 10/30 vs. Florida State Jeff's Take: I mentioned the experts’ predictions above for Thursday night. Rick Pitino cast his vote as well.
Georgia Tech (3-2 ACC | 6-2 overall)
Last: W 56-28 vs. Pitt | Next: 11/1 vs. Virginia Jeff's Take: Pitt fumbled.. and fumbled.. and fumbled. 5 times in the 1st quarter! It was, as Cousin Eddie would say, the gift that kept on giving for Georgia Tech.
Boston College (2-2 ACC | 5-3 overall)
Last: W 23-17 vs. Wake Forest | Next: 11/1 @ Virginia Tech Jeff's Take: True freshman Jon Hilliman is becoming a focal point in the running game. You could see signs of greatness in high school.
Virginia (2-2 ACC | 4-4 overall)
Last: L 28-27 vs. North Carolina | Next: 11/1 @ Georgia Tech Jeff's Take: The Hoos’ start to the season was a feel-good story that was just what the doctor ordered. But now they’re 4-4 with 4 tough games left.
Pitt (2-2 ACC | 4-4 overall)
Last: L 56-28 vs. Georgia Tech | Next: 11/1 vs. Duke Jeff's Take: I’ve already made jokes about all of the time Pitt has spent at no.10 in the poll this season. Now, the Panthers are back. I can’t explain that performance Saturday.
NC State (0-4 ACC | 4-4 overall)
Last: BYE | Next: 11/1 @ Syracuse Jeff's Take: Syracuse, Georgia Tech, Wake Forest and North Carolina. That’s what’s left for State. Doeren has to find a conference win in there somewhere, right? 2 wins get him a bowl game.
Syracuse (1-3 ACC | 3-5 overall)
Last:L 16-6 vs. Clemson | Next: 11/1 vs. NC State Jeff's Take: Freshman kicker Cole Murphy found out what Death Valley was all about. It’s a tough road to 6 wins for the Orange, especially without Terrel Hunt for a while longer.s
Wake Forest (0-4 ACC | 2-6 overall)
Last: L 23-17 vs. Boston College | Next: BYE Jeff's Take: The Deacs are 1 loss away from being eliminated from any bowl hopes. Cue the Deacon Blues.
