PILE UP ON AISLE ACC

North Carolina losing to Boston College opened the door for Pittsburgh to move into the top spot in the AP poll. The loss, combined with big wins for Duke against conference foe Virginia Tech and Wake Forest, who snapped BYU's 53 home game winning streak, caused a pile up of ACC teams in the 2-4 spots.

Clemson continues to climb up the poll, and B.C. debuted this week at 17 after upsetting the Tar Heels.

When Duke's Jon Scheyer heard the news, he made crazy faces.
