After defeating Virginia Tech on the road yesterday, the that Panthers have jumped into the AP top 25 rankings for the first time this season. Pittsburgh is now ranked twenty third in the nation. Pitt is one of three ACC teams ranked at the moment.
Wake Forest sets at 16 and NC State at 18. Pitt was ranked twenty fourth but lost the same week to NC State, which is interesting because this coming Saturday, Pitt is set to host Clemson. The Tigers have been a powerhouse in the past seasons, but since the loss of Trevor Lawrence, it has not been the same.
Clemson lost their ranking this season after week six. They started the year at number three. Clemson and Pittsburgh will play at Heinz Field next Saturday at three 30 p.m. That game will be televised on ESPN
