This week's college football polls are out, and for the third time this season, Boston College will face a top 25 opponent. And not just any top 25 opponent, the #1 ranked team in the country.
Fresh off a 30-26 victory over Miami, the Florida State Seminoles (10-0, 7-0 ACC) reclaim the top spot in this week's USA Today Coaches and AP polls. The Seminoles have won a school- and ACC-record 25 straight games, the longest win streak in the FBS since Miami won 34 straight from 2000-02.
This weekend's Boston College-Florida State game marks the program's fifth game all-time against the #1 ranked team in the nation. The Eagles have a trio of losses to then Miami (1991, 2001, 2002) and, of course, a 41-39 upset victory over top-ranked Notre Dame in 1993.
Earlier this season, Boston College knocked off then-#9 USC at home, 37-31. The Trojans check in at #24 in the Coaches' poll this week. From the ACC, Georgia Tech is ranked 16th in the Coaches' and 17th in the AP polls. Duke ranks 25th in both polls this week.
