Clemson is on top of the ACC with a perfect 5-0 conference mark while Georgia Tech is sliding back to the pack in the ACC Coastal after dropping its last two games.
The ACC is starting to resemble a one horse race as Clemson extended its conference mark to 5-0 with a 59-38 victory over North Carolina. The surprising Wake Forest Demon Deacons bounced back a week after suffering its first conference loss with a narrow 24-23 victory over Duke. Florida State rebounded from an 0-2 start in the conference to even its record with a 41-16 defeat of Maryland.
Things are less clear in the ACC Coastal division as Georgia Tech's recent two game losing streak has them sliding back to the pack. The Yellow Jackets potent offense suddenly doesn't look potent anymore as they fell to Miami 24-7 on Saturday. Virginia Tech finds itself on top of the division with a 3-1 conference mark after waking up late to defeat Boston College 30-14.
