        The Hurricanes received 34 first-place votes, seven more than last week, when they were tied at No.1 with Oklahoma. The Sooners were second with 21 first-place votes and 1,744 points, 39 less than Miami.

        Texas remained third, followed by Tennessee, Florida State and Florida. Michigan, Ohio State, Nebraska and Georgia rounded out the top 10.

        Colorado State (No.19) was one of three newcomers in the poll, joining Notre Dame (23rd) and Wisconsin (25th).

        INDIANA: Hoosiers defensive tackle Kris Dielman was named the Big Ten's defensive player of the week. The Troy, Ohio, native had seven tackles and five tackles for loss in Saturday's 25-17 victory over William and Mary.

        VIRGINIA TECH: Quarterback Grant Noel will undergo exploratory surgery on his injured left knee and will not start the Hokies' next game.
