CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - The Virginia Tech football team has fallen out of the Associated Press Top 25.

The Hokies beat NC State 45-24 in their season opener on Saturday, but have dropped out of the poll, after being ranked #20 in each of the last two weeks.

Schools from the Big Ten and Pac-12 were added back into the rankings this week, and there were a number of adjustments by voters.

Tech did receive the most votes of any team not in the Top 25, with 195, and they are just one vote behind #25 Memphis.

UVA is also in the Others Receiving Votes category, with 12 votes.

The Cavaliers beat Duke 38-20 in their season opener on Saturday at Scott Stadium.
