College Football Rankings: USF Moves Up To #14 In Coaches Poll, #16 In AP Poll

New, 4 comments

After USF's 52-24 win over UTEP last night, the Bulls have moved up in both of this week's Top 25 polls. In the AP Poll, USF moved up two spots to land at #16, while the Bulls moved up three spots in the coaches' poll to #14.

USF jumped over Arkansas, West Virginia, and Florida State in both polls, but the writers were thoroughly impressed with Clemson's last two victories over Auburn and Florida State. The Tigers leapfrogged over USF and landed at #13.

USF will have a chance to move up a couple of spots in the rankings, because there are several battles between ranked teams next week. This week's matchups include Nebraska-Wisconsin, Alabama-Florida, Texas A&M-Arkansas, and Virginia Tech-Clemson, and if the cards fall the right way, you might see the Bulls crack the top 10 next week.

Both polls in their entirety after the jump.
