Miami Football Remains a Top 10 Team in Both Major Polls

Following a 28-10 win over Virginia Tech Saturday at Hard Rock Stadium, Miami maintained its position in the top 10 of both major college football polls released Sunday.

Miami (8-0, 6-0 ACC) climbed two spots from No. 9 to No. 7 in the Associated Press rankings, marking its highest position in that poll this season and its highest since the Oct. 27, 2013 AP poll (also No. 7). The Hurricanes remained at No. 6 in the Amway Coaches Poll for the second straight week.

The Hurricanes, who are ranked in the top 10 of both polls for the fourth straight week, entered the season ranked in both preseason polls for the first time since 2010.

In their two seasons under the direction of head coach Mark Richt, the Hurricanes have been ranked in the top 10 of both polls in both seasons; in Week 6 of 2016, Miami was ranked No. 10 in both the Associated Press poll and Amway Coaches Poll.

Miami continues a three-game homestand with a matchup against No. 3/5 Notre Dame (8-1) on Nov. 11. Kickoff for the rivalry matchup is set for 8 p.m. on ABC from Hard Rock Stadium.
