Florida State moved up a spot in the two noon polls on Sunday, climbing to 6th in the USA Today/Coaches Poll and 8th in the Associated Press poll. [Update:] The Harris poll came out this afternoon with the Noles up a spot to sixth as well. The BCS comes out at 8:45.
Florida State was off this weekend for the first time all year, but they actually kick-started their prep for Virginia Tech yesterday, as if it were a Monday, to give themselves a full week's timeframe before Thursday night's game in Blacksburg.
Clemson now sits at 8th in the Coaches poll, 9th in the Harris poll and 10th in AP poll, nobody else in the ACC was sniffing either poll though. Beyond the top two teams in the ACC, the rest of the conference may as well be a mid-major this year. The top 4 in each poll are Alabama, Oregon, Kansas State and Notre Dame. But where it gets wonky is in the AP poll, which doesn't factor into the BCS, Ohio State is 5th. Ohio State is not bowl eligible so they're not even ranked in the Coaches poll, which has Georgia at 5 and FSU peeking in at 6. The Harris mirrors the coaches'.
I'll have a new post for the BCS tonight.
