The Virginia Tech Hokies dropped out of the top 25 in both the AP and Coaches Polls on Sunday but there was some interest as to whether the Hokies may also drop out of the College Football Playoff committee’s top 25 after being ranked 14th entering the week and a couple teams below them also losing last week.
Instead, that was not the case for the Hokies.

The Virginia Tech Hokies dropped out of the College Football Playoff committee’s top 25 after being ranked 14th the previous week before losing to Georgia Tech last Saturday. However, the Hokies likely are not far outside the top 25 with Saturday’s game at Notre Dame presenting an opportunity for Virginia Tech to rejoin if they can pull off what would be currently be an upset by the Vegas line with the Hokies still being 1-point underdogs.
The Hokies don’t have room for error in their final two games if they want to get back in the top 25 but if the Hokies win both of those, it wouldn’t be surprising to potentially even see them in the top 20 of the committee’s final rankings before the Hokies would play in a perspective ACC Championship but to do that, they must get the job done in South Bend and that is much easier said than done.
