The Miami Hurricanes moved up two spots in college football’s AP Poll — to No. 11 from 13 — on Sunday following Saturday’s 31-19 win over Pittsburgh.
Miami (4-1, 3-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) jumped ahead of North Carolina, which lost to unranked Florida State, 31-28, and Oregon, which is yet to begin its schedule as a member of the Pac-12. The Tar Heels (3-1) fell from No. 5 to 14.
Elsewhere in the ACC: Clemson (5-0) remains No. 1 following a 73-7 win over Georgia Tech. Notre Dame (4-0), a member of the ACC in football this year due to the schedule revisions amid the COVID-19 pandemic, is now No. 3 after the Fighting Irish did not impress in a 12-7 victory over Louisville. Virginia Tech (3-1) comes in at No. 19, and N.C. State (4-1) got into the rankings at 23.
Alabama (4-0) remains No. 2 after topping Georgia (3-1), which fell to No. 4, allowing Notre Dame to get to 3. Florida (2-1) is still No. 10 after its game against LSU was postponed.
In the Coaches Poll, Miami was also ranked No. 11. The Hurricanes moved up one spot there after being ranked 12th last week.
