I posted this as a comment to our hero Kyle Tucker. I post it here to see what you think.
I went back and did some quick research on this. There has never been a BCS Conference champion (going back to the first year of the BCS: 1998) that has been unranked coming out of the championship game. As it is right now, the Hokies are currently not ranked (not even a vote) in the AP and have 2 votes in the USA Today poll.
Assuming we win, a win against a 5-6 Virginia won't impress many voters. A win against a Boston College or Florida State may, but it depends on by how much and the circumstances of the game.
What do you think of this possible first?
