The USA Today preseason coaches poll came out this afternoon and for the first time in recent memory, Boston College is receiving votes in the poll.

BC received a total of 6 votes - 20th of a total of 34 teams in the “also receiving votes” category in the poll, which is conducted by a panel of 65 FBS coaches.

Noteworthy for BC:

-Clemson is #2 (behind Alabama at #1... with Oklahoma and Ohio St rounding out the top 4. Should be another compelling and fresh playoff race!)

-NC State, Virginia Tech, and Missouri all appear a smidge before BC on the ‘also receiving votes’ list.

-Florida State received 1 vote.

Obviously preseason polls don’t mean much other than as a reflection of hype generated around a team going into a season, but BC getting into the discussion here tracks with the program’s increased national profile under Jeff Hafley.

Now all that’s left is for the team to deliver - and if they do, a spot in the top 25 could be there for the taking in the first few weeks.
