Clemson Ahead Of Virginia Tech In BCS Rankings

Just like the AP Poll released earlier Sunday, the BCS Rankings released at 8:15 EST kept ACC Atlantic Division winner, Clemson, at No. 7, one spot above No. 8 Virginia Tech.

Though the Tigers beat the Hokies head-to-head in Week 5 by the score of 23-3, Clemson has struggled in their last four games, allowing 45 points to a two-win Maryland team, giving up 38 points to a UNC offense that has been wildly inconsistent, coming back after being down 18 points for a 56-45 win, losing by two touchdowns to Georgia Tech and coming from behind to beat Wake Forest at home Saturday on a last-second field goal. Certainly the poll is weighing that head-to-head win considerably.

The Hokies jumped Stanford in the latest poll, a little surprising considering the Cardinal lost to an Oregon team entrenched in the BCS Top-10 for many weeks. Should the Hokies win their remaining two games and Clemson hold on to beat NC State and rival South Carolina, the ACC will place two Top-10 teams in the ACC Championship Game in Charlotte. Florida State joined the BCS Top-25 at No. 25 to give the ACC its third team in the rankings. The full poll is listed below.
