CLEMSON (2-0 ACC | 5-0 OVERALL)

JEFF'S TAKE: For this week, I'm including some of my favorite tweets I've gotten over the past few days. A Louisville fan had a shoutout for Dabo Swinney: "Dabo is gangsta!"

FLORIDA STATE (3-0 ACC | 5-0 OVERALL)

DUKE (2-0 ACC | 5-1 OVERALL)

JEFF'S TAKE: Duke getting credit from the computers, up to #14. Or, if you distrust science and technology, and prefer to put your faith in the arbitrary nature of humans, #25.

PITT (2-0 ACC | 4-1 OVERALL)

JEFF'S TAKE: A Pitt fan hurled a random insult at me because I said officials missed a pass interference call against the Panthers. Maybe I shouldn't give him attention, but I found his misplaced anger amusing--especially since they won.

LOUISVILLE (1-1 ACC | 2-3 OVERALL)

JEFF'S TAKE: The Cards rested up before the big game against FSU. Even if they lose this week, I believe there's a good chance they win the rest of their games. And the computer backs me up.

MIAMI (0-1 ACC | 3-2 OVERALL)

JEFF'S TAKE: Someone wants the Canes higher in my poll. And apparently, he believes I couldn't get any higher when I make my picks.

VIRGINIA TECH (1-1 ACC | 3-3 OVERALL)

JEFF'S TAKE: A Hokie fan who was down after last week's loss to Pitt is feeling a little better this week after the win over NC State.

GEORGIA TECH (0-3 ACC | 2-4 OVERALL)

SYRACUSE (1-0 ACC | 3-2 OVERALL)

JEFF'S TAKE: Riley Dixon converts another fake field goal. And, boy, to Syracuse fans love them some Riley Dixon.

WAKE FOREST (1-2 ACC | 3-3 OVERALL)

BOSTON COLLEGE (0-3 ACC | 3-3 OVERALL)

JEFF'S TAKE: I don't think BC fans were in much mood to tweet after the way that game ended Saturday. Painful for a second-straight week.

NC STATE (0-2 ACC | 4-2 OVERALL)

JEFF'S TAKE: A State fan is a tad disheartened after a 2nd-straight loss.

VIRGINIA (0-1 ACC | 1-4 OVERALL)

JEFF'S TAKE: Is UVA like Quiznos? Does that question even make sense?
