Boston College put a good bit of distance between themselves and the bottom 1/4 of the the conference standings with the win over Virginia. BC's RPI is now at 130, 38, 39 and 40 spots higher than Wake Forest, Clemson and Virginia Tech, respectively. With just two regular season games to play, BC is in a great position to finish above the cut line, but they've got to take care of business against one or both of Clemson and Georgia Tech this week.

The only movement this week was Virginia and Maryland swapping spots at the 7-8. Both Wake Forest and Clemson lost the most ground this week, tumbling 21 spots in the RPI week over week.

BC can probably wrap up a spot above the cut line with a win in one of their final two regular season games this week.

Big 2013 ACC/Big Ten Challenge promotion & relegation game of the week is this Sunday, as Wake Forest hosts Virginia Tech on the final day of the regular season.
