The ACC Power Poll is compiled each week by ACC Digital Network host Jeff Fischel. Give Jeff your feedback via Twitter (@JeffFischel)!
Florida State (6-0 ACC | 9-0 overall)
Last: W 34-20 vs. Virginia | Next: 11/15 @ Miami Jeff's Take: Interesting divide developing. Human polls have FSU where you’d expect. However, the computers just aren’t impressed. In fact, 1 we know well is picking Miami.
Clemson (6-1 ACC | 7-2 overall)
Last: W 34-20 vs. Wake Forest | Next: 11/15 @ Georgia Tech Jeff's Take: Deshaun Watson has an announcement to make, and he gets the chance to do it in a big game. Every poll is underrating this team because Watson’s been gone.
Louisville (5-3 ACC | 7-3 overall)
Last: W 38-19 vs. Boston College | Next: BYE Jeff's Take: Once. Twice. Three times an I-N-T vs BC. Gerod Holliman now 1 shy of the all-time college record.
Georgia Tech (5-2 ACC | 8-2 overall)
Last: W 56-23 vs. NC State | Next: 11/15 vs. Clemson Jeff's Take: Justin Thomas moves into my top 5 ACC Player of the Year list as GT piles up 479 yards rushing vs NC State. As of today: Duke, Holliman, Conner, Jameis, JT.
Duke (4-1 ACC | 8-1 overall)
Last: W 27-10 vs. Syracuse | Next: 11/15 vs. Virginia Tech Jeff's Take: Yes, the Blue Devils drop a spot despite winning again and leading the Coastal. To see me taken to task for that, you have to watch the power poll!
Miami (3-2 ACC | 6-3 overall)
Last: BYE | Next: 11/15 vs. Florida State Jeff's Take: Here’s your chance, Canes. Prove that you are as good as you’ve gotten me to believe over the past month. (Somehow, I’ve turned that game into being about me.)
Boston College (3-3 ACC | 6-4 overall)
Last: L 38-19 vs. Louisville | Next: BYE Jeff's Take: We saw the limits of the passing game exposed by Louisville’s secondary. This team is still as smart & tough as any in the conference. But sometimes, better talent will trump that.
North Carolina (2-3 ACC | 4-5 overall)
Last: BYE | Next: 11/15 vs. Pitt Jeff's Take: It’s 8 vs 9 this week. That’s a long ride (maybe by monorail?) from what I expected 2 months ago. But it’s big for both teams’ bowl hopes.
Virginia (2-4 ACC | 4-6 overall)
Last: L 34-20 vs. Florida State | Next: BYE Jeff's Take: From 4-2 to 4-6. 2 games left: at home vs Miami and at Virginia Tech. Your guess is as good as mine what the Cavs’ final record will be.
Virginia Tech (1-4 ACC | 4-5 overall)
Last: BYE | Next: 11/15 @ Duke Jeff's Take: Can someone show me how to make that shrug symbol on Twitter? I don’t know how and this is the perfect time to use it to describe the Hokies’ season.
Wake Forest (0-5 ACC | 2-7 overall)
Last: L 34-20 vs. Clemson | Next: 11/15 @ NC State Jeff's Take: Not much to add at this point. I know college students well enough to know many of them in Winston-Salem are enjoying watching this again and again until basketball starts.
