[2020] ACC Quarter Season Power Rankings

2 posts in this topic

We are at the Quarter Point in the Season and it's time for Power Rankings. These rankings were made by @Darman, @ImposterCauster, and I. We don't necessarily think this is a ranking of best teams in the conference exactly, but a mixture of on paper talent, game performance, and schedule toughness.

 

Let's get to the Rankings:

Not only has Pittsburgh played the toughest schedule, they've beaten everyone so far. This was a no brainer to us. Pitt has played the best out of anyone in the conference to date and they deserve the #1 spot. Grant McConnell is tearing up the competition and looks like a Heisman Candidate early in the season.

Clemson gets our #2 spot based on their schedule and talent. Even though they stumbled a little last week, they preserved a win. Their only loss is on the road at Auburn. They are the best team in the Atlantic right now and are favorites to make it back to the ACC Championship Game.

Darman has brought this team to life and they are showing it on the field so far this season. Duke has played very well and consistently, and has slain a giant in the conference with their win over FSU last week. Duke is on a roll and should get their first Bowl Game in school history this season.

UVA has played well, but against inferior competition. The difference between Duke's schedule and UVA's schedule was our main reason for putting Duke 3 and UVA 4.

The first ACC teams to 2 Conference Wins! And the only team without a coach. Syracuse has done well, earning victories of FSU and NCSU.

Our last team over .500, Louisville has won more games than they lost. There weren't high expectations for this team, but they seem to be beating those expectations early on.

Yes, even with their two game losing streak, we put FSU over Virginia Tech and North Carolina. We felt their on paper talent was justification enough to put them over the Hokies and Heels. FSU will rebound and will get back to a Bowl Game this year.

The Hokies lack a certain amount of talent, but they have won 50% of their games so far. Tough losses to Pitt and Oklahoma State and a win over North Carolina gets them to #8.

The Heels have surprised many with their play so far. Max Laws has improved mightily and looks like he could be an asset to this team finally.

 

10. HLTu4bm.png

 

The Jackets have played at Alabama and at Clemson. They fought Alabama tooth and nail, losing by 9 points. They didn't put up a fight against Clemson. They did beat Georgia State, which is an OK win. The Jackets could make moves in the Coastal this year, watch out for them.

The Demon Deacons have a win! Which is more than I thought they would have at season's end. They're still not very good however and that one win will most likely be their only win.

Oh how the mighty have fallen. Boston College is 0-4, although they've played some good teams and played them hard. They just can't make the plays at the end of the game to finish it off. BC is in serious trouble of not going Bowling.

Last year's surprise team in the ACC have come back down to earth. At 0-4, the Wolfpack are feeling a bit uneasy. Not making a Bowl Game this year will hurt, what they should focus on now is dominating recruiting.

They might be the worst Power 5 team in the country right now. A couple years of instability at the coaching position has left this team cratered for talent. They can't seem to avoid getting blown out. Fortunately for Canes fans, they are cleaning house in recruiting right now.

 

 

Please let us know in the comments what changes you would make.
