12. Boston College Eagles - 11-6 (2-4)

The Eagles admitted had a difficult stretch recently, including three straight road games. They did beat Georgia Tech but lost to both Clemson and Syracuse by double-digits. BC did get a 63-59 home win over Notre Dame, led by 20 points from guard Jaeden Zachery.

There are still some more tough games for the Eagles to deal with, starting with North Carolina at home. After that is Virginia Tech and Notre Dame on the road, with the Irish looking for revenge after this recent result.

11. Pittsburgh Panthers - 10-6 (1-4)

The Panthers did have a tough schedule to open ACC play, including against both Duke and UNC. The problem is that those games weren’t competitive, including a 22-point blowout to the Blue Devils at home. The best win to date is on the road at Louisville.

Pittsburgh gets a chance to get revenge for an earlier loss to Syracuse at home, before taking on Duke again in Cameron Indoor Stadium. So far, this is a team that has beaten the teams they’re supposed to but has yet to get a meaningful win on the season.
