From Heather Dinich of ESPN:

For the second straight week, the ACC has two teams ranked in the top 10 of the BCS standings: No. 7 Clemson and No. 8 Virginia Tech. Florida State made its first appearance of the season, sneaking in at No. 25, and Georgia Tech has fallen out.

It's outstanding for the ACC to have this kind of representation at the top of the BCS standings, and the league will benefit even more from it if these two teams wind up meeting again in the ACC championship game on Dec. 3 in Charlotte, N.C. Clemson has already clinched the Atlantic Division and Virginia Tech has the lead in the Coastal Division race. For the ACC to feature two top-10 teams in its ACC title game would be a major boost in the relevance, image and nationwide interest in the game. And there's little doubt college football fans can expect a better performance from the Hokies than what they saw in the regular season matchup, which Clemson won, 23-3.
