ACC QB power rankings entering Week 11: Jordan Travis, Drake Maye continue to dominate
ACC quarterback power rankings have been updated entering Week 10.
Jordan Travis and Drake Maye continue to turn in impressive results week after week. Players like Jack Plummer and Haynes King also made an impact in Week 10 and rose up the rankings this week.
Here’s Saturday Road’s updated QB power rankings ahead of Week 10:
14. Carlos Del-Rio Wilson, Syracuse (Last week: N/A)
Carlos Del-Rio Wilson might not be the answer for Syracuse. He had 7 completions and 4 interceptions last week in a 17-10 loss to Boston College.
13. Grayson Loftis, Duke (Last week: N/A)
Grayson Loftis earned his first career start last week and led the Blue Devils to a win over Wake Forest. However, the offense wasn’t exactly humming. Loftis had 86 yards on 19 attempts. It’s still early in his career, but a better defense will likely punish Loftis if he isn’t able to settle in.
12. Christian Veilleux, Pitt (Last week: 14)
Christian Veilleux completed 15-of-35 passes for 244 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 interception in a loss to Florida State. Veileux would have had another TD if not for a fumble just shy of the goal line.
11. Mitch Griffis, Wake Forest (Last week: 13)
Mitch Griffis did throw an interception in the loss to Duke, but he also went for 241 yards on just 16-of-19 passing. Griffis played well enough to win that game and looked as good as he has all season.
10. Cade Klubnik, Clemson (Last week: 11)
Clemson beat Notre Dame, but not because of anything Cade Klubnik did particularly well. He’s averaging just 6.4 yards per attempt this season.
9. Brennan Armstrong, NC State (Last week: 10)
Brennan Armstrong will step back into the starting lineup this week after MJ Morris decided to maintain his redshirt. Armstrong is a veteran who has struggled this season, but has played well at times during his career.
8. Tony Muskett, Virginia (Last week: 9)
Tony Muskett left the Georgia Tech game early with an injury. With Virginia’s bowl hopes officially over, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Anthony Colandrea finish out the season as the starter.
7. Kyron Drones, Virginia Tech (Last week: 6)
Tough game for Kyron Drones against Louisville last week. I’m still buying Drones’ upside.
6. Tyler Van Dyke, Miami (Last week: 3)
Frankly, this is probably still too high for Tyler Van Dyke. He has 10 interceptions in his last 4 games. I think he’s been trying to play through an injury, but he’s been hurting Miami more than he’s helped it over the past couple of weeks.
5. Thomas Castellanos, Boston College (Last week: 4)
Thomas Castellanos didn’t have a great game as a passer, but he was able to add 87 yards and a touchdown on the ground. There’s still a high-ceiling here longterm.
4. Haynes King, Georgia Tech (Last week: 8)
Haynes King led Georgia Tech to a blowout win vs. Virginia in Week 10. King is fourth in passer efficiency rating this season amongst ACC quarterbacks. He’s been one of the most productive quarterback transfers in the country from this most recent cycle.
3. Jack Plummer, Louisville (Last week: 5)
Week 10 was a big one for Jack Plummer, who threw for 141 yards on just 12 attempts in a blowout win over Virginia Tech. Louisville controls its own destiny en route to the ACC Championship Game.
2. Drake Maye, North Carolina (Last week: 2)
Drake Maye threw for 4 touchdown passes against Campbell in Week 10.
1. Jordan Travis, Florida State (Last week: 1)
It was a quiet week for Jordan Travis as he didn’t have his top two wide receivers available vs. Pitt. He still made use of FSU’s deep stable of tight ends and led the Noles to a relatively drama-free victory.
