New, 8 comments

USF remains the highest ranked Group of Five team in the polls this week... and now there are three ranked teams in The American.

The USF Bulls, who had this weekend off, inched up one spot to #15 in the latest Amway Coaches Poll and remained at #18 in the latest Associated Press Poll for the third week in a row.

Their 11th straight poll appearance dating back to last season sets a program record, surpassing the previous set in 2008.

The Bulls remain the highest ranked team in the Group of Five and The American, with C. (who destroyed Cincinnati 51-23 in THREE QUARTERS) moving up three spots to #22 this week. However, both War on I-4 combatants have been joined by another conference mate...

Fresh off a 48-45 thriller over Air Force on Saturday, Navy checks in at No. 25. Things are about to get interesting for the Midshipmen — they travel to Memphis this Saturday and follow that up with a visit from C. on Oct. 21. Both should be hot fire.

Meanwhile, San Diego State continues to lurk at No. 19 after defeating UNLV 41-10. The Aztecs face a huge midseason test this week when they host Boise State, so keep your eye out for that one.

Other Notables:

Last week, UW head coach Chris Petersen sounded off on his team constantly getting saddled with late start times and how it's killing his team in terms of national exposure. This prompted a response from Kirk Herbstreit and even a joke criticizing U-Dub's non-conference schedule. (As it it turns out, they were supposed to play Wisconsin this year before they bailed. Nope, totally can't relate to that problem at al-QUIT DUCKING EVERYONE BADGERS!!!)

It's weird that this is happening to a team that literally just made the College Football Playoff and stands a good shot at winning the Pac-12 again. Let's see if this continues to escalate.
