RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – With three teams in the top 5, the Atlantic Coast Conference is proving it just more than the Clemson Tigers.

North Carolina has skyrocketed to the top 5 this season. Mack Brown has brought talent to Chapel Hill and the Tar Heels are playing well with Sam Howell under center.

The Heels travel to Florida State to take on the floundering Seminoles at 7:30 p.m.

Excitement surrounding No. 4 Notre Dame’s matchup at home against Louisville has dropped off after the Cardinals dropped to 1-3 on the season and plumetted from the top 25.
