USF Comes In At #22 In New AP Poll

New, 10 comments

After USF's big road victory against Notre Dame, the Bulls have been ranked 22nd in the latest Associated Press Top 25 poll. The Bulls were awarded 221 points in the poll, exactly 221 more than they had when the AP's preseason poll was released. (You get 25 points for a first-place vote, 24 for second, and so on down to one point for a 25th place vote.)

This is the first time the Bulls have been ranked since November 2009, but it's the fourth season out of the last five in which they've appeared in the poll. In total, this is the 20th Associated Press poll that has featured USF.

The Bulls also received an uptick of votes in the coaches' poll, but were only able to move up to #27 while teams like TCU and Auburn stayed in the top 25. Also, Baylor didn't make the coaches' top 25 despite actually beating TCU, so that poll is filled with doo-doo heads.

Full AP poll is after the jump.
