ACC Quarterback Rankings Week 8: Still A Tight Race Among The Leaders

When two of the top QB's in the conference have off weeks it's difficult to expect much jostling among the leaders. That's exactly what happened this week when Christian Ponder and Russell Wilson were preparing for their battle against one another on Thursday night.

Tyrod Taylor remained at the top after a dominating performance against another cupcake, this time around it was Duke. Georgia Tech should give him more of a challenge, so who knows how those numbers will be after they battle this weekend.


Joshua Nesbitt should be embarrassed after the way he played against Clemson. Again he has shown that he isn't a passing QB and Clemson even demonstrated how to stop his running game, limiting him to only 2 yards.

Jacory Harris and Danny O'Brien share this weeks honors for best performance by a QB in the ACC. Although Taylor had a great weekend he played Duke, one of the worst pass defenses in the nation. Harris and O'Brien each threw for three touchdowns in their respective wins over North Carolina and Boston College.

Another disappointment this week was the performance by T.J. Yates. Most critics had been considering him one of the top three QB's in the ACC but after his game against Miami those critics may be retracting their statements.

Plenty is still up for gabs and a lot can change this week with all the key games. Expect to see some different rankings come next week. Then again one never knows what will take place when the ACC teams do battle.
