After the first full slate of Saturday games, Week 1 is in the books. Here’s how all of the fans who participated in our SB Nation FanPulse Poll see the college football landscape after their respective teams’ openers:
To no one’s surprise, Clemson still reigns supreme atop our leaderboard, having dispatched Georgia Tech, 52-14, last Thursday night. Looking past the Tigers, there were no changes in the rankings from our preseason ballot before Notre Dame, previously listed as the 7th best team, which dropped three spots to No. 10 following a somewhat surprisingly close contest with Louisville.
In terms of ACC movement, Syracuse jumped into the poll at No. 21, becoming the only other team in the conference besides Dabo Swinney’s squad in the Top-25. Losses from Virginia Tech and Miami to Boston College and Florida, respectively, knocked those two out from last week’s rankings.
And now for how the UVA faithful see it:
Streaking the Lawn FanPulse CFB Top 25
For the second consecutive poll, Virginia finished inside the Top 25 in Streaking The Lawn’s own ballot, despite missing out on the national one (though the Hoos did at least receive some votes in that list, too). Besides the UVA community, which moved the Cavaliers up one spot from its preseason position of 24 to No. 23, Georgia Tech’s blog “From The Rumble Seat” also included Virginia inside its personal rankings at No. 25.
