ACC Top Non-Conference Wins


ACC Schools have won 17 non-conference games against FBS (1-A) schools so far this season. Virginia Tech has a chance to pick up the best one to date this weekend against Notre Dame. Here's a run down of the 17 wins from best to worst using the CBS Rankings of all 130 FBS Schools. No one is suggesting the CBS rankings are definitive, or even all that great, but they work as a general blunt instrument. This list also does not account for game locations, so take it with a grain of salt.

That said, by any measure, it's not a very impressive list.
