Checking in on the Week 6 ACC standings after an entertaining past Saturday of conference play.

It was an entertaining and dramatic Saturday in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Four of the six games involving ACC schools were decided by a seven points or fewer including Maryland's 21-16 loss against Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets improved to 6-0 overall and 3-0 in ACC play after staving off a late charge by Maryland, who fell to 2-3 and 1-2 in defeat. The game of the day, as expected here on SB Nation DC, was the night game in Blacksburg featuring Miami and Virginia Tech. The Hokies emerged victorious, 38-35, in a wild game that saw 35 fourth quarter points scored.

Through six weeks of the 2011 college football season, Clemson and Georgia Tech have emerged as the clear favorites in the conference. Wake Forest remains a fun sleeper to keep an eye on, while North Carolina and Virginia Tech have proven they shouldn't be written off just yet. For the Terrapins, Saturday's loss puts them behind the eight ball in the Atlantic division, but they do still control their own destiny by virtue of still having Clemson and Wake Forest on the schedule. In fact, Maryland hosts the undefeated Tigers this week in a game they must win to have any shot at competing for the conference. Let's take a look at the standings.
