Another week of Top 25 rankings are out. After losing to both Iowa and Akron, UVA's next opponent, Pitt, is well out of the rankings. The Hoos have only dropped two games so far this season, both to ranked teams (UCLA is looking better and better), and both by just one score (8 points). With Pitt, Duke and North Carolina on the immediate horizon, Virginia stands a chance at making some waves and earning their spot in the Top 25. Meanwhile, the Hoos picked up one vote from the AP voters.
Looking at the rest of AP and Coaches Top 25, Virginia faces a total of three teams in the rankings -- Florida State (1/2), UCLA (8/9) and BYU (18/19) -- and an additional four teams receiving votes (Louisville, Duke, Georgia Tech, North Carolina).
Here's the complete Top 25, with Sagarin for good measure:
|9||Notre Dame||UCLA||Florida State|
|10||Michigan State||Michigan State||Stanford|
|11||Ole Miss||Ole Miss||Michigan State|
|12||Mississippi State||Georgia||Notre Dame|
|18||BYU||Ohio State||Kansas State|
