Updated ACC power rankings for this week. Virtually no movement this week and I only flip-flopped Louisville and Miami, dropping the Cardinals a spot after an ugly loss to Clemson.
So Pitt should drop, too, right? Well, in the Panthers’ case, I kept them at No. 11 for one main reason. Despite being 1-2, they still don’t have an ugly loss on their resume while teams below them do. Syracuse lost to Middle Tennessee last week and Virginia was beaten by 17 by Indiana. That’s a different case than Miami, who remains undefeated since they haven’t played in a few weeks due to Hurricane Irma.
If Syracuse and Virginia manage to win those games, I still don’t believe they’re as good as Pitt. But they would be ranked higher due to being undefeated. With those bad losses, though, it’s difficult to move them up.
