BLACKSBURG — Virginia Tech dropped out of the AP poll and the coaches poll following a 27-21 loss to West Virginia on Saturday. 

The Hokies (2-1, 1-0 ACC) were still among the teams receiving votes in both polls.

Clemson and North Carolina are the only remaining ACC teams ranked. Clemson is No. 9 (down three spots from last week) in the AP poll and No. 7 in the coaches poll (down one spot). The Tigers beat Georgia Tech, but dropped in each poll. North Carolina is ranked No. 21 in the AP poll and No. 20 in the coaches poll.
