ACC Football Giftastic Power Rankings – Week 1


Lots of interesting things to watch as the season gets started. How do we feel about your team? Here are the ACC Football Giftastic Power Rankings – Week 1

1. Clemson

Listen, you’re the defending national champions. And we haven’t played a game, yet. So I’m keeping you at #1 until something shows me otherwise.


2. Florida State

Loads of preseason hype surrounds this team and they’re the pick to make the CFP from the ACC. We’ll see.


3. Virginia Tech

Defending Coastal champs with a good defense and high expectations for their freshman quarterback.


4. NC State

Strong defense and capable offense and one very good offensive player have made the Wolfpack a trendy pick. Can they deliver?


5. Miami

Listen, we’ve seen this story before. Pick the Hurricanes to win the Coastal. They’re back. Except they always end up at THE back.


6. Louisville

They’ve got Lamar Jackson. That’s a ton. But they lost several offensive weapons and the OL is sieve-ish.


7. Duke

Daniel Jones is apparently the real deal, and Cutcliffe may have his deepest roster at Duke. But is it quality depth?


8. Pitt

Matt Canada gone. James Conner gone. But Pitt still has offensive pieces. Do they have the defense to keep things steady?


9. Georgia Tech

GT loses Justin Thomas and Dedrick Mills. Can they continue their trend from last year and improve their record by 6 wins again? My math says the odds aren’t good.


10. UNC

Oh, Heels. Here go Hell come. Good luck you guys.


11. Syracuse

The offense is coming around but the defense is probably not going to be able to hold up this year. Hang on until next year…maybe…


12. Wake Forest

Wake brings back a lot of contributors, but the fact remains that their teams just haven’t been that good. And they struggle scoring points, which are needed to win games, I hear.


13. Boston College

BC wants dudes. Too bad their team is full of duds.


14. Virginia.
