Week three is in the books and it's time for another installment of the ACC power poll. After an extremely disappointing second week, Saturday’s results were slightly more varied. Some teams bounced back from tough losses (hello Virginia Tech); while others suffered embarrassing defeats (sorry Wake and Duke).
Now with week four upon us, teams enter the heart of their schedule as conference play picks up. We'll see the contenders and the pretenders as pre-season favorites Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech take on potential bubble busters in Boston College and NC State.
While conference play will help shed light on the balance of power in the ACC, right now there is much uncertainty. No team has been impressive enough to separate themselves from the pack. In fact, only one team is currently ranked within the top 25.
Last week, this was referred to as the "lack of" power poll, which is quite fitting given the current state of affairs in this floundering BCS conference. As we wait for a front runner to step up, we must examine the current shape of the ACC in ranking the twelve teams.
