Bottom of the pack:

The Blue Devils enter the weekend 4-3 after losing three-straight games. The Blue Devils haven’t been able to put a full game together over the three-game stretch. Despite all that, the Blue Devils were able to move up one spots thanks to the Boston College-Louisville game. Taking on a weak 2-5 Pittsburgh schedule is a nice way to start a winning streak. A loss on Saturday may indicate that their 4-0 start may have just been a mirage.

The Eagles have almost crawled out of the bottom five after a big win over Louisville last weekend. The Eagles defense allowed a ton of yardage and points surprisingly their offense found a way to win the game. That being said, the Eagles have a tough schedule the remainder of the season that beings this weekend against Virgina.

This fall may be the worst fall in the history of Louisville sports. The basketball team is in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons and the football team is already out of ACC contention. Lamar Jackson has been solved and the defense has looked like swiss cheese

The Panthers season is almost a total loss and there’s little hope that they find a way to turn it all around. The offense is still sputtering and the defense can’t hold teams off for more than one half. Pitt is well on their way to a 3-9 or 2-10 season.

The Tar Heels latest loss is their sixth straight and it won’t get any better from here. North Carolina is having a much worse season than expected, that being said, you can’t blame the Tar Heels for their horrendous injury luck.
