The ACC now controls three of the four top spots in the Bud Light Southern Power Poll, with Clemson, North Carolina and Florida State joining Alabama at the top of the poll.

But even with the poll being ACC-heavy at the top, there are a total of nine SEC teams ranked in this week's poll. LSU makes the biggest jump this week, moving up five spots to No. 6.

Clemson and Alabama both have chances to clinch spots in the College Football Playoff if they can win their respective conference title games this upcoming weekend.
