Yes, Virginia Tech (No. 15 AP/No. 15 coaches) remains ranked, but the Hokies are the only other ACC squad in either major poll. Georgia Tech, which fell to Virginia and Miami in consecutive weeks, exits both polls, and only the Yellow Jackets and Hurricanes are even in the also receiving votes portions of the polls.
