The college football season never ends. As the calendar turns to March, Spring Practices are right around the corner for all teams, if they haven’t already started, and the annual Spring Games are only a month away. For the ACC, the 2024 gridiron season is one of change with three new schools added to the conference.

Last September, it became official that Stanford, SMU, and California were added to the conference beginning this fall. It also meant that the structure of the scheduling changed and we are now looking at a new ACC.

The omission of an undefeated conference champion Florida State being left out of the four-team College Football Playoff is still hard to believe, but this season begins the new 12-team CFP and it should keep hope alive for more programs as the season goes in November and December. 

There has been a lot of change and turnover in the ACC and as always, the transfer portal has played a big role in creating rosters once again. With that said, here is the first ACC Football power rankings entering Spring Practices.

The Cardinal comes to the ACC off a 3-9 season with a defense that allowed over 30 points a game under first-year coach Troy Taylor. Not a stat you want to bring with you to a new conference
