The Boston College football team continues to receive just a little bit of love in both major college football polls this week. The Eagles received 19 votes in the AP poll -- the equivalent of 34th place -- and seven votes in the Coaches Poll, once again good for a tie with North Carolina State at 39th. BC picked up three more votes in the Coaches Poll this week, but three less in the AP poll.
From the ACC, Florida State retains its #1 ranking in both the AP and Coaches polls this week with its 23-17 overtime victory over Clemson. The Tigers, ranked 22nd in the AP and 24th in the Coaches last week, have exited both polls this week after falling to 1-2 on the year. The only other ACC representative in either poll is Duke at #23 in the Coaches Poll (the Blue Devils are the first team out of this week's AP poll at #26). Pretty brutal weekend for the ACC, which saw several programs on the cusp of the top 25 -- Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech, North Carolina -- all go down in week 4.
Duke, Clemson, Georgia Tech, BC and Pittsburgh are all receiving votes in this week's AP poll, while Clemson, Georgia Tech, N.C. State, BC and Louisville garnered votes in the Coaches poll.
