Pitt to be No. 1

After Connecticut's defeat at the hands of Georgetown, it appeared Pitt would move up to number two in the polls.

Not so fast...

With unranked Boston College's upset win over No. 1 North Carolina, Pitt is likely to move up to the top overall spot in both national polls - a first for the University. While the team has been ranked No. 2 in the polls, most recently in 2006, it has never held the top ranking.

Make no mistake about it - while it's the regular season, this is a true milestone for the school. In terms of recruiting and overall prestige, it's a big step. With a win against unranked St. Johns at home, the team could hold onto the ranking for two weeks...if not longer.
