The Virginia Cavaliers picked up some momentum in the polls after defeating Florida State Saturday night as the Hoos moved up to No. 21 in the AP Poll. Virginia joined the party in the Coaches Poll this week, coming in at No. 22.
This is the first time that the Hoos have been ranked in back-to-back weeks since 2007, and the highest Virginia has been ranked since hitting 21 back in October of 2007.
Virginia climbed four spots from last week after fiercely battling the Seminoles, and the Hoos are still just the second ACC team in the rankings behind No. 1 Clemson. There was no change in teams 1-9 from last week’s ranking, and Utah traded places with Michigan to join the top-10.
Maryland fell out of the rankings after failing to beat Temple. Michigan State and USC also found themselves outside the polls, leaving room for Cal, Arizona State, and TCU to join the party this week.
Here is the full Top-25:
