Is the ACC about to have a rough year? If early season results are any indication, the sky is looking gray. The 12 teams in the ACC have faced 11 “BCS schools” and have gone an awful 4-7 so far.
Miami beat South Carolina (SEC)
Duke beat Arizona State (PAC 10)
North Carolina beat Ohio State (BIG 10)
North Carolina State beat Auburn (SEC)
Clemson lost to Texas A&M (BIG 12)
North Carolina lost to Syracuse (BIG EAST)
Florida State lost to Florida (SEC)
Maryland lost to Cincinnati (BIG EAST) and Wisconsin (BIG 10)
Virginia lost to South Florida (BIG EAST) and Stanford (PAC 10)
Both Boston College (dropped two games already) and Georgia Tech have lost to an Atlantic 10 team, but those two teams (Saint Joseph’s and Dayton are only a combined 5-4 so far this season.
Neither Virginia Tech or Wake Forest have faced a “BCS School.”
What has all this taugh me? Duke might be in trouble against Connecticut. The ACC is 0-3 against the Big East.
