Buzzing on Yahoo Sports:

Week 6 ACC power rankings

National Football Post

Every Tuesday during the season I will release league power rankings, which you can find under the College tab at the top of this page. The six BCS conferences will all have their own power rankings, while I will also rank the best of the non-BCS squads.

With that in mind, let's take a look at how the ACC shapes up:

1. Florida State (5-0): The Seminoles are 5-0 for the first time since 2005, which was the last year of a 15-season streak of 5-0 starts.

2. Clemson (4-1): Tahj Boyd threw three touchdown passes to three different receivers and ran in another as the Tigers beat Boston College 45-31.

4. N.C. State (3-2): Mike Glennon threw for 440 yards and four touchdowns, but his interception with 48 seconds left set up Miami's winning score in a sloppy six-turnover loss for Tom O'Brien's squad.

5. North Carolina (3-2): Gio Bernard scored twice, Bryn Renner threw three touchdowns and the Tar Heels set a school scoring record in a 66-0 win over Idaho.

6. Duke (4-1): The Blue Devils beat Wake Forest 34-27 for their first win in the series since 1999.

7. Virginia Tech (3-2): The Hokies fell to Cincinnati 27-24, which was the team's second loss to a Big East foe this season.
