Dude, Boston College has to start winning some games. Despite knocking off Clemson on Saturday, the Eagles find themselves below the cut line with an RPI of 150. A loss to North Carolina and a win over Clemson is good for ... an 11-spot drop in the RPI? Huh? It's certainly not looking promising with the next two against a pair of Top 10 teams in Miami and Duke, that's for sure.

Other movement this week: Maryland and Florida State swap spots at the 7 and 8, while Georgia Tech and Wake Forest flip flop at 10 and 11. BC and Virginia Tech swap spots at 13 and 14. The Hokies and Eagles are separated by just a single spot in this week's RPI.
