Virginia Tech moves up to No. 13 in latest AP Top 25 poll

The Virginia Tech Hokies moved up three spots to No. 13 in the latest Associated Press Top 25 poll that was released on Sunday.

Virginia Tech (3-0) was 21st in the preseason Top 25, but moved up to three spots to No. 18 following the season-opening win against West Virginia and then jumped another two spots, to No. 16, after shutting out Delaware. Now the Hokies have climbed three more spots.

Justin Fuente’s squad moved up this week following a come-from-behind 64-17 win at East Carolina.

The Hokies were also 13th in the Coaches Poll released earlier Sunday that included five Atlantic Coast Conference teams: Clemson (No. 2), Florida State (No. 11), Virginia Tech (No. 13), Miami (No. 14) and Louisville (No. 20).

The Hokies trailed East Carolina 17-7 after one quarter on Saturday but scored 16 points in the second quarter to take control of the game and then 34 in the third quarter to run away with it.

Virginia Tech is back in action against Old Dominion this Saturday before hosting Clemson a week later on Sept. 30.
