College Football Rankings: Four ACC Teams Ranked In Top 25

Clemson and Georgia Tech move into the top fifteen in the USA Today Coaches poll.

Sunday morning's USA Today poll features four ranked ACC teams, led by Clemson, who moved into the Top Ten after their impressive win over Virginia Tech Saturday night. The Tigers moved up from 15th to 8th in the country riding a dominating defensive performance in Blacksburg and a 23-3 win.

Georgia Tech is the next ranked ACC team in the USA Today poll, ranked 13th.  The Yellow Jackets offense continued to roll on Saturday with a 45-35 win over North Carolina State. Coming off a 25 point win over Towson, Maryland and Randy Edsall travel to Atlanta this Saturday to try and knock off what is looking like the Coastal Division's top team (we know who former Terps coach Ralph Friedgen will be rooting for). It doesn't get any easier, as the following week they will host the Atlantic's top team, Clemson, in College Park.

After the 20 point home loss to Clemson, Virginia Tech fell seven spots from 10th to 17th.  The Hokies will try to bounce back and even their conference record next week when the Hurricanes travel up from Miami.  Rounding out the ranked ACC teams in Florida State, slotted at 22.
