ACC Nation Power Poll

Underdog

It feels as if the ghost of Yogi Berra is hanging around on this All Saints Day. The “it’s like deja’ vu all over again” seems to be creeping into this week’s ACC Nation Power Poll.

There are far too many teams that began the season with a bang that have lost their powder. On the other side of this equation we’re looking at teams that kept some in reserve for an explosive finish.

The big news this week revolves around the college football rankings where the top 6 teams in this week’s poll reside. Even more surprising may be the teams that aren’t in the playoff committee’s Top 25.

Who would have thought that the likes of Miami, Virginia Tech and Florida State would essentially be sitting in the stands watching the season slip away?

On this week’s ACC Nation Podcast, Will Ojanen and Jim Quist offer a quick analysis of ACC football and basketball.
