ACC Football Power Rankings: Week 5

1. Clemson Tigers (4-0)

Last week: 1

Clemson quarterback DJ Uiagalelei was spectacular in the Tigers’ 51-45 overtime win over Wake Forest. Throughout the thriller, DJ displayed composure, composure and confidence, making spectacular throws to keep Clemson in the game time and time again. Clemson’s front seven didn’t dominate as much as I expected, and the Demon Deacons (who ran just 21 yards against Liberty) were able to run the ball effectively against the Tigers (110 yards). Sam Hartman also ripped Wes Goodwin’s defense through the air. If Clemson’s defense doesn’t return to their 2021 form soon, the Tigers could be on guard against No. 10 NC State on Saturday when College Gameday returns to Death Valley.
