The top four teams in the ACC Power Rankings have solidified their spots after another week’s competition, but this week could be tumultuous for all 15 teams playing.
As the ACC moves into its fourth week of competition, the top five teams have solidified themselves in the power rankings, but Boston College finds itself at the middle of the pack once again.
Ahead of Boston College football’s opening game against Duke, head coach Jeff Hafley look to foster competition within his team.
BC is on a four-game winning streak and has already set the program’s single-season record for ACC wins, but the question is whether it’s too late for a tournament push.
The Eagles held Duke to a season-low 63 points and had a four-point lead with under eight minutes to play, but converted just one of their final eight field goal attempts.
Margo Carlin scored twice, including the game winner with four minutes left in the fourth quarter, and the Eagles won their fifth straight as they knocked off the 15th-ranked Orange.
After one week of ACC action, one thing is clear: No. 1 Clemson is heads and shoulders above the rest of the conference, while the likes of Syracuse, Virginia, and North Carolina follow.
Derryck Thornton was a five-star ESPN 100 recruit who originally played at Duke before transferring to USC after his freshman season.
