Week 1 AP Poll released: Virginia receiving votes

Rafael Suanes-USA TODAY Sports

The AP Poll came out today and...Wahoowa!

After this weekend's 19-16 win against a BYU team just on the outside of the AP's preseason top 25, Virginia has leapt into the "Also Receiving Votes" section of the Week 1 poll with 2 votes.  So here's a huge shoutout to the 2 writers that thought UVA was the 25th best team in the nation! (Or the 1 who thought UVA was 24th).

Virginia last received a vote (yes, 1 vote) in the final AP rankings of 2011.  The Hoos last appeared in the top 25 for 1 week in the November 20, 2011 poll at #24.  That Virginia team was 8-3 headed into the season finale against Virginia Tech.

Taking a step back, Alabama maintains a firm grip on the #1 spot, with the Oregon Ducks jumping to number 2.  The last time that UVA faced a opponent ranked at #2 or better out-of-conference in Charlottesville, the Hoos tied North Carolina Pre-Flight (which competed for three years during WWII), 13-13.

Ohio State and Clemson each picked up a first place vote.  Clemson and Florida State (10) are the only two ACC teams in the top 25, though Miami sits just outside, missing the cut by 8 votes.

The USA Today  / Coaches poll is out too, and UVA does not appear.  Clearly, the coaches know nothing about anything.
