Only 3 ACC teams have winning records against RPI Top 50
Posted March 3, 2014
Congrats to the Virginia Cavaliers who wrapped up the ACC regular season title by beating Syracuse on Saturday. It was the Cavaliers' fourth win over a team in the RPI top 50. They are an even 4-4 against the top 50 which is the 4th best percentage in the league.
Syracuse has more RPI top 50 wins than any team in the ACC. The Orange are 7-2. North Carolina has the second best record against the top 50 going 5-3. Duke is next in line with a 5-4 record.
Outside of those four, every other ACC team has a sub-par record against the top 50, and it's a pretty hard fall. Three teams are winless, and six schools have just one win. Here's a look at the 11 other ACC schools and their record against the RPI top 50.
Florida State 3-7
NC State 2-8 (Including win at Pitt)
Wake Forest 1-8
Notre Dame 1-8
Boston College 1-9
Georgia Tech 0-6
Virginia Tech 0-8
