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.

        1. Except on is from the SEC and the other is a bottom dweller in the ACC. Adding PITT, BC and Syracuse to the ACC was a HUGE mistake. You get no credit for beating them and lose a lot of respect for losing to them.

    1. I think the fact that UNC didn’t fall far when we whooped that ass shows that we have some respect

      1. We’re VT, of course we have respect. Are we not the most winning team (or top 3) in the last 21 years??

    2. Timing. But if we get closer we’ll likely jump them by the end. It’s the “whole body of work” concept. We’ve still got 2 road games, a wacky offense coming to town, and a rivalry game. Doesn’t matter if we don’t win those.

    3. But it really doesn’t matter, except for personal pride?

      It has no effect on any of the important goals the team has. Obviously, I don’t think it’s possible for VT to win out (all 4 regular season games and ACCCG), but if by some miracle the team did, they’d go to the Orange Bowl, and it wouldn’t matter where UNCheat stood in the polls, vis a vis VT.
