by - Assoc. Editor -

ESPN has ranked Clemson #1 in its ACC Power Rankings after Week 9 of the college football season.

Clemson defeated the Wolfpack 56-41 on Halloween and the Tigers are currently ranked #5 in the latest Coaches Poll released on Sunday afternoon.

"For the first time all season, the Tigers had to rally from behind multiple times in their most unevenly played game all season," ESPN's Andrea Adelson said. "Deshaun Watson finished with 437 yards and six touchdowns as the Tigers racked up 623 yards of total offense, and they've now scored 50-plus points in back-to-back games. Now the biggest game of the season awaits: Florida State in Death Valley."

The full ACC power rankings include Clemson (#1), Florida State (#2), North Carolina (#3), Pittsburgh (#4), Duke (#5), North Carolina State (#6), Miami (#7), Louisville (#8), Virginia Tech (#9), Virginia (#10), Georgia Tech (#11), Syracuse (#12), Wake Forest (#13) and Boston College (#14).
