After Saturday night’s electric home win over Florida State, Virginia moved from No. 25 up to No. 21 in this week’s AP Top 25 Poll. Once again, Clemson remains at No. 1; the Tigers took care of business on the road with a blowout win over Syracuse.
For the second week in a row, those are the only two ACC teams in this AP poll.
POLL ALERT: Utah jumps to No. 10, Cal and Arizona St in to give Pac-12 six teams in Top 25 presented by @askRegions; Clemson, Alabama 1-2.

Beyond Clemson and Virginia, only one other ACC team received votes: Wake Forest (14). Now 3-0, with marquee wins over Utah State and North Carolina, Wake Forest is inching closer to rejoining the AP Top 25 for the first time in over a decade.
2008, were No. 21 before a 26-0 loss to Maryland.
Unlikely to crack Top 25 tomorrow, but winning next weekend and at BC would make votes interesting. https://t.co/rX5qIxxvmX
