The ACC didn't lose a non-conference game this week. Yay, us!
1. Wake Forest
3. Georgia Tech
4. Virginia Tech
6. Boston College
7. North Carolina
8. Florida State
9. NC State
- No. 9-11 are almost interchangeable.
- FSU drops five sports after failing miserably at home. Carolina drops farther than I had planned due to the news TJ Yates is done for the year.
- Miami jumps BC for dominating in College Station. BC's offense looked bad until the fourth quarter against UCF.
- Georgia Tech played outstanding without Josh Nesbitt. Hmmmmmm... Nesbitt goes out and the Jackets don't fumble. Hmmmmmm...
- The Wake-Clemson game on Oct. 9 will decide the Atlantic. The VT-Miami game on Nov. 13 may decide the Coastal. I'm not sure the Tar Heels can move on without Yates.

Three huge non-conference games, two meaningful conference games and Pillow Fight '08 between the Hoos and Dook. Hopefully VT/FSU/NCSU can go at least 2-1. I feel bad for the Tar Heels, having to go on the road to Miami the week after losing Yates. Maryland at Clemson has a little more intrigue after the Terps won the last two. I still expect them to get blown out, though.
