When was the last time you could say there are as many top-20 ACC teams as SEC teams, bout time that happened.
I'm not sure you could have said that about the ACC at any point in the past five seasons. The fact that the conference has five teams ranked that highly illustrates how much potential the league has when its historical powers perform to their reputation. In the eyes of the general public, the reemergence of Florida State as a national title contender will help the league's perception more than its surprising depth.I still maintain UNC, NC State, and UVA are potentially sleeping giants despite their continued inability to capitalize on their built-in advantages. Dave Doeren and Larry Fedora still need to be given more time to be fairly evaluated. Not many people realize this, but Dave Doeren coached some surprisingly stingy defenses at Kansas before leaving for Madison.
