The Atlantic Coast Conference is finally getting the respect coaches and players feel is long overdue.
The ACC has three top-10 teams in the BCS standings. Alabama remains No. 1, but Florida State jumped over the Pac-12 and Oregon to claim the second spot. The Seminoles also leaped over the Big Ten and Ohio State in the Top 25 after their 51-14 victory over then-No.3 Clemson last Saturday.
