Lots of close games this week meant a lot of movement in the bottom half of the ACC Power Rankings, and this week, top teams will face their toughest tests yet.
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.
Fusine Govaert’s walk-off winner powered Boston College field hockey past No. 4 Virginia 1-0 and into the ACC title game for the first time in program history on Friday night.
The Eagles traveled to Charlottesville to play No. 1 Virginia, and couldn’t keep up, losing, 6-1, in their third straight defeat. BC has won just one of its last nine games.
The Eagles matched their program record for ACC wins in a season, sweeping past the Cavaliers in three sets to move to 5-0 in conference play thus far.
After a horrific Week 3 showing, most, but not all of the ACC was able to get back in the win column ahead of the latest edition of our ACC Power Rankings. Clemson still remains the clear best team, though Virginia and Wake Forest are both off to 4-0 starts.
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.
