The Hokies are one of four ACC teams, with Clemson (#9), Miami (#7), and Florida State (#2), who squeaked ahead of Oregon for the #2 spot, being the others.

The Hokies are ranked #19 in both the Harris Poll and the USAToday Poll, but Tech got a big boost from the computers, who rank the Hokies #8, on average.

Virginia Tech also moved up to #16 in the AP Poll Sunday, so to sum it up: #16 AP, #19 USA Today, #14 BCS.

The Hokies take on Duke next Saturday, Oct. 26th, at 3:30 in Lane Stadium. The game will be televised by ESPNU.

Update (10/21/13, 11:43 AM): Boston College game scheduled for noon

The ACC announced on Monday that Virginia Tech’s game at Boston College will kick off at noon, the fifth game of the year so far that will kick off in the noon hour.

The game will be televised on ABC, ESPN, or ESPN2, however, and that’s the first time since the opener against Alabama that a Saturday Virginia Tech game will be televised on one of those three networks. Previously, the Hokies’ six Saturday games (since Alabama) have been on ESPN3.com (WCU), FoxSportsNet (@ECU), the ACC Network (UNC), and ESPNU (Marshall, Pittsburgh, and this Saturday’s Duke game).

TSL’s schedules have been updated to reflect the BC start time and network.
