It wasn’t just that the ACC lost, it was that they lost their marquee games on national television and they got embarrassed in those games.
Preseason ACC leader Clemson lost to a middle SEC Alabama, Virginia Tech was beat at their own game by ECU, NC State got whooped behind the wood shed Thursday night, and Virginia was completely out-manned by USC.
A 7-4 mark wouldn’t normally be as bad, but this was a big week for the ACC to make a name for itself. Instead the conference crumbled and folded.
But, never the less, with the help of other ACC Community leaders, we bring you the ACC power rankings after week one.
