After improving their record to 6-1 with a win over Pitt, Virginia Tech climbed into the top 20 in both national polls. The Hokies are #19 in the AP Poll, and #20 in the USA Today Poll.
Tech joins three other ACC teams in the national polls.
Clemson: #3 in the AP, #4 in the USA Today
Florida State: #5 in the AP, #5 in the USA Today
Miami: #10 in the AP, #11 in the USA Today
Virginia Tech: #19 in the AP, #20 in the USA Today
This marks the first time since 2005 that three ACC teams have been ranked in the top 10 of the AP Poll at the same time. That year, Florida State, Miami and Virginia Tech were all ranked in the top 10 at the same time, though the Hokies were the only program to finish the season in the top 10.
Florida State travels to Clemson for huge Atlantic Division showdown next Saturday. The Hokies are off next week, and will host Duke on October 26.
