Pitt dropped three spots in the AP Top 25 on Sunday after improving to 3-0 by beating Louisville, but is ranked for the first time this season in the USA Today coaches poll.
The Panthers are ranked No. 24 in the AP poll after being No. 21 a week ago. They fell despite winning over a ranked Louisville team because the AP allowed voters to rank teams in the Big Ten and Pac-12 this week after those conferences agreed to return to play later this fall.
Pitt is ranked No. 25 in the coaches poll, the first time they have been ranked in that poll this season.
Inserted into the AP poll ahead of the Panthers were No. 6 Ohio State, No. 10 Penn State, No. 14 Oregon, No. 19 Wisconsin and No. 23 Michigan.
The ACC has five ranked teams, led by No. 1 Clemson and followed by No. 5 Notre Dame, No. 8 Miami, No. 12 North Carolina and the Panthers. Virginia Tech received the most votes of any unranked team. Virginia and Louisville also received votes.
The coaches have North Carolina at No. 11 and Virginia Tech at No. 23.
Pitt is ranked for three straight weeks for the first time since 2009, when the Panthers were ranked for six straight weeks to finish the season.
