Clemson continued its argument for the No. 1 team in the nation while the Pitt defense gave up 38 points to NC State. Time for ACC football power rankings.

Everybody plays the fool sometime
There’s no exception to the rule
Listen, baby, it may be factual, may be cruel
I ain’t lyin’, everybody plays the fool
Falling in love is such an easy thing to do
And there’s no guarantee that the one you love
Is gonna love you~ Everybody Plays the Fool  The Main Ingredient

There is an age-old maxim, “Fool me once shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.”

The Pitt Panthers had everyone fooled. It’s not that the Panthers are in free fall; this was going to be the season that Pitt did not have their annual Pitt game. They fooled everyone by having the most Pitt game Pitt could have.

Florida State realized they were playing a football game around the second quarter after being down 14-0 to FCS Jacksonville State. There was one team that did not attempt to fool anyone, the Clemson Tigers. The Tigers have played like the class of the ACC and Trevor Lawrence has played like the Heisman frontrunner.

It was a light schedule this week in the ACC. The matchups are next week. Florida State takes on Notre Dame and Clemson takes on Miami. Here’s to not getting fooled again. These are your ACC power rankings for this week.
