14 14 167 170 Virginia Tech Hokies 11-14 Duke (2/21), Florida State (2/24)

With a win over Wake Forest, the Eagles jump the Deacons and are holding down the 12 spot this week. The Eagles don't move up this week, however, as Clemson jumps from 13th to 11th based on the strength of a 63-60 victory over Georgia Tech last week. BC now has a bit of breathing room over both Wake Forest and Virginia Tech in the latest RPI rankings, but not a whole lot. Wake has just one game this week -- a home game vs. 12-0 Miami -- while Virginia Tech hosts both Duke and Florida State. The road for BC this week isn't all that much easier with a home game vs. Maryland and a road trip to Durham.

The only other movements this week: Towards the top of the league table, Pitt and North Carolina again swap spots at the 5-6. As does Maryland and Florida State at the 7-8.

Not many games this week with major 2013 ACC/Big Ten Challenge promotion & relegation consequences. Let's go with Florida State at Virginia Tech on Sunday, February 24.
