The ACC went 15-3 in non-conference action last week to move to 183-69-1 (.725) on the year against non-ACC foes. Last week, #1 Florida State, #19 NC State, and #25 Virginia all had perfect weeks, while five teams (Florida State, Miami (FL), NC State, North Carolina, and Virginia) remain ranked in the top-25 in at least one poll led by top-ranked Florida State. This weekend there is only two ACC series as several teams step out of conference and others take time off for exams.
