Week 7 ACC Power Poll

The ACC took care of business this weekend, winning all four non-conference games. Some were less impressive than others:

Week 7
1. Virginia Tech
2. Boston College
3. North Carolina
4. Georgia Tech
5. Wake Forest
6. Florida State
7. Virginia
8. Miami
9. Maryland
10. Clemson
11. Duke
12. NC State


- I was completely unimpressed with Wake Forest's performance against Clemson. Its defense played well against a depleted Clemson offensive line and an offensive coordinator that has no clue. But the offense struggled most of the night.

- Georgia Tech dropped two spots. I would have dropped the Jackets more if they hadn't been playing their third-string QB. But still, 10 points vs. Gardner-Webb? You're better than that.

- I really don't like having the Hokies in the top spot. It scares me.

- The Hoos' run game is looking more like I thought it would at the beginning of the season.

- Clemson might as well be 12th.

Yes, thank you for remembering that our 3rd stringer was starting. Our O-Line was absolutely horrible. Swiss Cheese is a good mental image of what we had. But a win is a win is a win and I'll take it.
