The University of Miami is ranked No. 23 in both the Associated Press and Bowl Championship Series polls after topping Virginia Tech last Thursday, the first ranking for the team since the Sept. 10, 2006 poll.
This continues a streak of good news for the football program, after division rival North Carolina fell to No. 22 Maryland Saturday night, giving control of the ACC Coastal division to the Hurricanes. No team Miami faces in its last two games is ranked.
Miami remains in the “Others Receiving Votes” section of the USA Today poll, coming in at No. 26.
