From Heather Dinich of ESPN:

Welcome back, Clemson and Georgia Tech. Two programs which had losing seasons last year are 4-0 and look capable of returning to the ACC championship game, where they met in 2009. The big game this weekend will be in Blacksburg, where Virginia Tech will host Clemson in a battle of two of the league’s three remaining undefeated teams. Much like the latest bowl predictions, there have been some major changes in the power ranking this week.
