Update: Latest BCS rankings are here. Clemson's loss is likely Virginia Tech's gain, at least when it comes to the BCS Standings.
The BCS Rankings projections for Week 10 suggest there will be a new ACC team highest on the list. After suffering its first loss of the season, Clemson is expected to drop fairly far in the rankings when they come out on Sunday night. That will allow Virginia Tech to jump ahead of them and be higher on the list.
According to the latest projections by Samuel Chi of SBNation.com, Virginia Tech will be ranked No. 10, whereas Clemson is outside of the top 15. Of course, not all is lost for Clemson. The Tigers still have the inside track to the ACC title game, where they'll likely see the Hokies again. Clemson routed Virginia Tech in the meeting between the two teams earlier in the season, so the Hokies will need to play better to earn the ACC's automatic bid.
