NCAA Football: North Carolina State at Pittsburgh Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

After a big upset this week, we’ve got a new No. 1 team. I’m still not convinced Miami is better than Clemson, but they move up after the Tigers lost to Syracuse.

The Orange make the biggest leap this week after defeating Clemson, climbing five spots. Louisville falls the farthest, dropping six spots after a shocking loss to Boston College.

Locally, Pitt drops another spot after their loss coupled with Boston College’s win over Louisville.

As usual, let me know you agree/disagree with.

1. (2) Miami (5-0) - 25-24 win over Georgia Tech

2. (1) Clemson (6-1) - 27-24 loss to Syracuse drops them a spot

3. (3) Virginia Tech (5-1) - Bye

4. (4) North Carolina State (6-1) - 35-17 win over Pitt
