Week 8 of the college football season is underway, and the ACC has all but Duke playing this weekend. We get three games in the noon ET slot, two at 3:30, and two in prime time at 7:30 p.m.

The early slate of games saw Clemson defeat Syracuse 47-21, North Carolina beat North Carolina State 48-21, and Louisville over Florida State 48-16. Notre Dame beat Pitt 45-3 in the nationally televised afternoon game, and Boston College beat Georgia Tech 48-27. Also Wake Forest beat beat Virginia 23-16.

The last game of the night saw the Miami Hurricanes hold off the Virginia Cavaliers 19-14 in Hard Rock Stadium.

We’ll be updating the standings throughout the rest of the Saturday. Seven ACC teams played an out of conference game this season, so they have conference records listed and then overall records. Teams that did not play a non-conference game have a single record listed.
