The Virginia Tech Hokies fell out of the College Football Playoff rankings for Week 12 of the 2017 season.
The committee released the playoff rankings on Tuesday, Oct. 31. There will be five more rankings – each one coming out on
Tuesday until the final rankings, which will be released on Sunday, Dec. 3. Each ranking will include 25 teams, but only the
Top 4 teams will make the playoffs.
Virginia Tech came in at No. 13 in the first rankings, but they haven’t won since then. The Hokies are on a 2-game losing
streak for the first time under second-year head coach Justin Fuente.
Two weeks ago, the Hokies lost on the road to Miami, 28-10. Although Virginia Tech undoubtedly wished it was a closer game,
Miami has risen to No. XX in the rankings, so it still kept the Hokies alive for a New Year’s Six Bowl.
However, Virginia Tech then lost to Georgia Tech this past Saturday, 28-22. As a result, the Hokies fell out in both the Amway
Coaches Poll and AP Top 25.
With three losses, Virginia Tech isn’t still a contender for the playoffs, but if they would like to at least get back into
the rankings, the Hokies will have to bounce back against Pitt.
