The Miami Hurricanes were elevated back to No. 10 in college football’s AP Poll on Sunday afternoon after a weekend where they had their scheduled home game against Georgia Tech postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak on the team.

The bump up follows last weekend’s drop of three spots — from No. 9 to 12 — despite Miami winning at Virginia Tech with 13 players unavailable.

Wisconsin (18) fell below the Hurricanes (7-1, 6-1 ACC) after the Badgers lost to Northwestern (11) on Saturday. Indiana (12), another team that was moved ahead of UM last Sunday, also dropped below Miami after losing, 42-35, to No. 3 Ohio State.

The top eight in the AP Poll remain unchanged: Alabama, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Clemson, Texas A&M, Florida, Cincinnati and BYU. Oregon is No. 9 in the poll.

UM remained No. 9 in the Coaches Poll on the idle week.

The Hurricanes will again be off this coming Saturday as their scheduled trip to Wake Forest will be delayed by a week, to be played on Dec. 5 due to the coronavirus outbreak on the team. Miami then is scheduled to host North Carolina on Dec. 12 and Georgia Tech on Dec. 19.
