ACC Football Team Power Rankings Week 1: Some Impress While Others Disappoint

It wasn't the most exciting opening week for the ACC, but we did get to see a little bit of this and that from most teams.

Some gave us hope, while others burned and crashed. Duke lost to a lowly Richmond squad and Boston College had a gift wrapped victory with Northwestern's starting quarterback out, but they blew that one.

There were seven new faces behind center that took over the helm at starting quarterback after the departure of their former starters. Those names consist of E.J. Manuel (FSU), Tahj Boyd (Clemson), Mike Glennon ( NC State), Tevin Washington (Ga. Tech), Michael Rocco (Virginia), Logan Thomas (Va. Tech) and Bryn Renner (North Carolina).

The most impressive player of the week had to be North Carolina's Bryn Renner who set an ACC-record with a 95.7 completion percentage. He completed 22 of 23 pass attempts for 277 yards and two touchdowns. It can't get much better than that to start off a college career.

There aren't many big games this upcoming week, except maybe for the conference battle between N.C. State and Wake Forest.

I don't expect the rankings to jump around too much until after week three when some of the big games take place. For instance, FSU vs. Oklahoma, Miami vs. Ohio State, and Clemson vs. Auburn.

So lets take a look at my rankings now that week one is complete.
