Stephen Morris and the Miami Hurricanes lead the ACC Coastal Division.
North Carolina and Wake Forest move up in the rankings. Find out where your team ranks in the Week 11 ACC Power Rankings.
12. Boston College – (2-7) The Eagles lost at home to Wake Forest 28-14. B.C. next gets a visit from Notre Dame, and the Eagles can make a little noise if they can keep things close with the Fighting Irish, and they will shock the world of college football if they can pull off the upset. LW # 11
11. Virginia - (3-6) The Wahoos got a huge victory on the road over the N.C. State Wolfpack 33-6. If the Cavaliers were capable of this outcome, one has to question what Mike London was doing wrong during their six game losing streak? The Cavaliers have to win out to become bowl eligible, and while it’s highly unlikely, but if the Wahoos continue to play like they did in Raleigh, then who knows what could happen. Next up for Virginia it’s back to Charlottesville to face the Miami Hurricanes. LW # 12
10. Georgia Tech - (4-5) The Yellow Jackets defeated an injury depleted Maryland Terrapins squad 33-13 in College Park, but a win is a win. An the Yellow Jackets needed one badly. Tech next travels to Chapel Hill to take on the North Carolina Tarheels. LW # 10
9. Maryland - (4-5), The Terps lost their third game in a row, this time to the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at home 33-13. The Terps QB situation is precarious, and what seemed like a season that might end with a bowl trip, might now end with the Terps not going bowling at all. Next up it’s a trip to Death Valley, to face the red-hot Clemson Tigers. LW # 8
8. Virginia Tech - (4-5) The Hokies suffered a tough loss on the road to the Miami Hurricanes 30-12. The Hokies began the season highly ranked and with designs on another ACC and possibly a National Championship. But now the Hokies are in a fight to become bowl eligible in what is shaping up to be the most disappointing season in a long time in Blacksburg. Next the Hokies take on the Florida State Seminoles in a Thursday night matchup at home. LW # 6
7. Wake Forest - (5-4) The Demon Deacons won at home over the Boston College Eagles 28-14. One more win and the Deacs will be bowl eligible. But to get there this week, they will have to travel to Raleigh and defeat a team desperate for a win in the N.C. State Wolfpack, who are on a two game losing streak. LW # 9
6. N.C. State - (5-4) The Wolfpack suffered a deflating upset at home to the Virginia Cavaliers 33-6. A few weeks ago it seemed like the Wolfpack might be poised to make an ascension to the upper echelon of the ACC, and that’s still possible but now two straight losses have put the Pack in a near must win situation. Next the Pack gets a visit at home from the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. LW # 5
5. Miami - (5-4) The Hurricanes got a huge victory at home over the Virginia Tech Hokies 30-12. The Canes now sit at the top of the Coastal Division and control their own destiny. Win out and they will play in the ACC Championship game. But first they will have to travel to Charlottesville to take on the Virginia Cavaliers. LW # 7
4. Duke - (6-4) The Duke Blue Devils were humbled for the second consecutive week, this time at home by the Clemson Tigers 56-20. However, this still has to be considered a good season for the Blue Devils, but it would be even better if they can finish strong. They have a by this week, but on 11/17 is a trip to Atlanta to face the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. LW # 3
3. North Carolina - (6-3) The Tarheels had a bye this week. But the Tarheels will look to keep their momentum going on Saturday as they next face the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at home. LW # 4
1. Clemson - (8-1) The Tigers dominated Duke in Durham 56-20. The Tigers can now only hope that Virginia Tech can pull the upset over Florida State on Thursday, as that may be the only shot they have to get to the ACC Championship game. Clemson will next face the Maryland Terrapins at home in Death Valley. LW # 1
