For the first time this season, the ACC had five teams ranked in the Associated Press (AP) Top 25 poll in Florida State (No. 5), North Carolina (No. 14), Miami, (No. 17), Duke (No. 19), and Louisville (No. 25). Clemson is also receiving votes. The same five teams were ranked in the USA Today AFCA Coaches Poll this week, nearly mirroring the AP Poll. Florida State came in at No. 5, while North Carolina (No. 13) and Miami (No. 17) were both in the top 20. Duke is No. 21 and Louisville broke in the poll this week at No. 25. Clemson is also receiving votes in the coaches poll.

The ACC is off to a great start in non-conference play in the 2023 season, going 29-13 (.690) overall in non-conference play over the first five weeks of the season. The ACC will play for non-conference games this week. Eight of the ACC’s 29 non-conference wins have come against the Big Ten and the SEC, with the ACC recording four wins over each of the two conferences. The rest of FBS is 12-38 overall versus the two Power 5 conferences.

Entering Week 6 of play, the ACC still has four teams that remain unbeaten in Louisville (5-0), Florida State (4-0), Miami (4-0), and North Carolina (4-0). The four undefeated teams are tied for the most among any FBS conference, matching the Big Ten and the Pac-12.
