The ACC standings are beginning to paint a picture of what could come with November right around the corner.

It's been a wild and crazy year in the conference with just about every team being unpredictable from week to week.

The Florida State Seminoles appear to be the best team in the ACC. On Saturday, the Seminoles took the trip to Sun Life Stadium and beat up on the Miami Hurricanes.

E.J. Manuel has been playing like one of the best quarterbacks in the country all year, leading the charge for Florida State. Paired with a very solid defense, the Semnioles may not be out of the national championship conversation.

The Duke Blue Devils have surprised quite a few pundits by leading the Coastal Division. The school is showing that it has an excellent football program for the first time in years, becoming bowl eligible over the weekend with a 33-30 win over the North Carolina Tar Heels.

The Boston College Eagles unfortunately reside on the other end of the spectrum. It's been a rough year on Chestnut Hill, with the Eagles only being able to defeat Maine in Week 2.

Here are the standings for both divisions:

  1. Florida State 4-1, 7-1
  2. Clemson 3-1, 6-1
  3. N.C. State 2-1, 5-2
