Pitt Drops from National Rankings, Clemson No. 2



Click for more coverage of the 2018 ACC Championship Game.

Pitt’s stay in the national rankings was short-lived.

After making their 2018 debut at No. 24 in the AP Top 25 and No. 25 in the coaches’ poll after their ACC Coastal Division-clinching win over Wake Forest on Nov. 17, the Panthers were bounced from both polls following their 24-3 loss to Miami on Saturday.

Pitt did receive 13 vote points in the coaches poll. No AP voters selected the Panthers.

Clemson, Pitt’s opponent in the ACC Championship Game on Saturday, is ranked No. 2 in both polls. The Tigers are the only team in the ACC that is currently ranked.

Regionally, Penn State moved up from No. 15 to No. 14 in the AP poll and No. 14 to No. 12 in the coaches poll after beating Maryland.
West Virginia dropped from No. 12 to No. 15 in the AP poll and from No. 12 to No. 16 in the coaches poll after losing to Oklahoma.

Pitt was also No. 24 in the College Football Playoff rankings. Those rankings will be updated on Tuesday night.
