The Atlantic Coast Conference is finally getting the respect coaches and players feel is long overdue.

The ACC has three top-10 teams in the BCS standings. Alabama remains No. 1, but Florida State jumped over the Pac-12 and Oregon to claim the second spot. The Seminoles also leaped over the Big Ten and Ohio State in the Top 25 after their 51-14 victory over then-No.3 Clemson last Saturday.

Sure, the ACC has its share of also-rans among its 14 teams, but it's the first time the conference has had three teams in the BCS top 10 since Halloween of 2005 -- and it's the only conference with three.

With Miami at No. 7 and Clemson (6-1) ninth, the ACC is suddenly a player in the national championship picture.
