This weekend's slate of college football games will be significantly marred by Hurricane Florence. Several games have already been canceled while many more have moved either locations or kickoff times.

The first two weeks of the college football season have provided fans with a few upsets.

With Week 3 fast-approaching, ESPN updated its Football Power Index. The computer model is a measure of overall team strength.

After the update, here are the conference title favorites.

ACC: Clemson - 61.8 percent chance

None of the conference favorites are surprising at this point in the season - although Washington's chances have dipped since the start of the season due to the team's loss to Auburn.

Despite a win over USC, Stanford couldn't catch the Huskies.
