11. North Carolina: 0-2 (47-35 loss to Louisville)
After two weeks, North Carolina looks just as expected, at least in the eyes of Yellow Jacked Up. After being defeated by a weaker Cal squad, the Tar Heels fell to Louisville last week 47-35. They showed promise against the Cardinals offensively but their defense has not been anywhere close to impressive allowing 82 points through the first two weeks. They should grab their first win of the season this Saturday however.

12. Syracuse Orange: 1-1 (30-23 loss to Middle Tennessee State)
In one of the more embarrassing losses for the ACC through two weeks, Syracuse loss to Middle Tennessee State. While the Blue Raiders are a respectable program they were coming off a 28-6 loss to Vanderbilt. The Syracuse defense gave up 363-yards of total offense while just getting above 300 offensively themselves. It only gets tougher from here for the Orange.
Next up: vs Central Michigan
T-13. Virginia Cavaliers: 1-1 (34-17 loss to Indiana)
They got their season off right with a 28-10 win against William and Mary but that was a close game for the first half and the offense struggled throughout. The defense allowed just 240-yards to the Tribe and then held a stronger Indiana offense to just over 300-yards after the Hoosiers gave top ranked Ohio State all they could handle just a week before. There is still plenty of work to do on offense but Bronco Mendenhall has the Cavaliers trending in the right direction.
Next up: vs UConn
T-13. Boston College Eagles: 1-1 (34-10 loss to Boston College)
They pulled a tight 23-20 victory against Northern Illinois in week one but their week two game against Wake Forest was a reality check. While neither side played horrible, the offense still has a ton to work on after having four turnovers that really set the tone of their game. They may be better than they were last year but they’re still one of the worst teams in the ACC.
Next up: vs Notre Dame
