3. ACC

TEAMS RANKED IN THE ROTHSTEIN 45: 8 (Virginia, Duke, Florida State, North Carolina, Miami, Louisville, Syracuse, Georgia Tech)

THE SKINNY: Top heavy would have been the best way to describe the ACC last season as only four or five teams likely would have played in the NCAA Tournament. Expect balance and depth to return in 20-21. In addition to the eight teams listed above, Clemson, NC State, and Notre Dame will all begin practice on Oct. 14th with a realistic chance of hearing their name called on Selection Sunday.

The Big Ten and the Big 12 topped the list.

—There’s a ton of cool new gear on the U of L athletics auction page.

—Despite the 1-2 start, ESPN’s FPI still has Louisville favored in six of its last eight games.

—It’s not a stretch to say the Pitt defense was “dominant” on Saturday, and the Panther players knew it.

—After being activated from the practice squad just a day earlier, Reggie Bonnafon saw his first NFL on-field action of 2020.

—Mekhi Becton was once again one of the only Jets having a solid game before an injury cut his afternoon short on Sunday.

—ACC start times and TV assignments for the weekend of Oct. 10:

Friday, Oct. 9

Saturday, Oct. 10
Virginia Tech at North Carolina, Noon, ABC
