New AP Top 25: Kelly Bryant runs the show, Damon Hazelton Jr. continues to emerge

After two weeks of action, here’s the latest AP Top 25 college football poll. This week’s poll features three ACC teams — the same as a week ago. As usual, Clemson leads the way.

  • No. 2 Clemson
  • No. 13 Virginia Tech
  • No. 21 Miami

Boston College is on the verge on entering the top 25, but may need a road win at Wake Forest on Thursday night — weather permitting — to secure that. Other ACC teams receiving votes:

  • Boston College (45)
  • Duke (10)
  • NC State (9)
  • Florida State (1)

 

Quick Stats

No. 2 Clemson

In the road win at Texas A&M, Kelly Bryant became the first ACC quarterback since Lamar Jackson (Nov. 2017 vs. Kentucky) to complete 70 percent of his passes, and rush for at least 50 yards and a touchdown in a single game.

No. 13 Virginia Tech

Ball State transfer Damon Hazelton Jr. continues to impress — after four catches for 107 yards and a touchdown in the win over William & Mary, the 6-foot-2 wideout has six catches on nine targets this season, including two touchdown grabs.

No. 21 Miami

In a bit of a laugher, Miami hung 77 points on Savannah State — again; the Hurricanes have outscored the Tigers 154-7 the last two times they’ve faced off. According to Football Study Hall, Miami scored 6.36 points per scoring opportunity on Saturday.
