Thanks to their 39-36 victory over Pitt on Thursday night, the Virginia Tech Hokies moved up in both major national polls. The Hokies are now ranked #21 in the Coaches Poll and #23 in the AP Poll.
Tech is one of five ACC teams ranked in both polls…
Clemson: #3 in both polls
Louisville: #5 in both polls
UNC: #17 in the Coaches Poll, #18 in the AP Poll
Florida State: #19 in both polls
Virginia Tech: #21 in the Coaches Poll, #23 in the AP Poll
Though they are ranked behind Coastal Division rival North Carolina, the Hokies will win the Coastal Division if they defeat each of their remaining ACC opponents: Duke, Georgia Tech and UVA.
The ACC also announced the kickoff times for next Saturday’s games. The Hokies and Blue Devils will play at 3:30, and the game will be televised by ESPNU. Duke is 3-5 overall and winless in ACC games.
