It certainly was an interesting 2023 ACC football season. From Duke's season-opening win over Clemson to Florida State running the table at 13-0, winning the ACC Championship game over Louisville, to the Seminoles being left out of the four-team College Football Playoff and a pair of one-loss conference champions, Texas and Alabama, getting in over Mike Norvell's team.
It was a less-than-stellar bowl season for the ACC, going 5-6, with Georgia Tech, Clemson, Duke, Virginia Tech, and Boston College emerging with wins. After that, the results were what they were and it's hard to put a lot of stock into the bowl results for the most part as a lot of teams have players enter the transfer portal or opt out for different reasons.
With that said, here is the ACC Football Power Rankings as all teams shift their focus to 2024.
It was a rough season in Charlottesville for Tony Elliott and his team. It appears he has survived for another year and will get one more shot next season to turn things around. There needs to be significant progress next season for the Cavaliers.
Things went sideways very fast this season for coach Pat Narduzzi and his team. After a loss to Virginia Tech, Boston College transfer quarterback Phil Jurkovec was replaced and even took some snaps at tight end in practice. Like Virginia, there needs to be more progress in 2024 for the Panthers.
