ACC Football Power Rankings: 2022 Week 6

An update on the Atlantic Coast Conference landscape through the first five weeks of the season.

We haven't even reached the halfway point of the 2022 season, and the ACC's preseason favorite is already in a position to runaway with the title.

A week removed from going toe-to-toe with Wake Forest, Clemson dispatched of their next-greatest threat to the Atlantic Division crown with a victory against NC State.

While the Deacs and Wolfpack are by no means out of the running, and teams like Florida State and Syracuse could still challenge them, Clemson's grip on the division is now extremely tight.

Take into account how nutty the Coastal Division has been, and it's hard to envision anyone else but the Tigers winning it all.

Anyways, it was another chaotic week in the ACC, with everyone but Clemson moving either up or down in our power rankings.

 So where do things currently stand in the conference following week five?
