Virginia Tech re-enters the rankings

The new USA Today Coaches Poll came out Sunday and Virginia Tech returned to the top 25 for the first time since losing to James Madison. The Hokies were slotted at No. 23, benefiting from losses by previously ranked teams Nevada, Florida, Air Force and Michigan.

Virginia Tech was one of three ranked ACC teams. Florida State remained at No. 17, while Miami moved back into the rankings at No. 25. The top five were No. 1 Oregon, No. 2 Boise State, No. 3 Oklahoma, No. 4 TCU and No. 5 Auburn.

Unlike the AP poll, the coaches poll is used as part of the formula for deciding the BCS rankings, which will be released later Sunday night. Virginia Tech Coach Frank Beamer has a vote in the coaches poll this year.

UPDATE at 2:05 p.m.: This week's AP Poll was just released and Virginia Tech is ranked No. 23 in that as well. Florida State was slotted at No. 16, while Miami was No. 25.

No surprise there.

Virginia Tech has some challenges ahead, as it will have four ACC games in November, including Miami.

Be that as it may, this Hokies team just is not very good. The defense has NO ANSWER for that WFU running back. The Hokie defense gives up a lot of big plays. The special teams are unremarkable. The o-line gives upa lot of sacks. Add to that the fact that we have no beaten any team of any stature this season.
