Following their inexplicable 25-24 win at Tulsa on Friday, USF managed to move up in both national polls on Sunday afternoon.
The Bulls moved up from 23 to 20 in the Amway Coaches Poll presented by USA Today and from 23 to 21 in the Associated Press Top 25.
From an analytics standpoint however, the Bulls dropped 14 spots from 27th to 41st in S&P+ this week. Only Arizona slid more this week, falling from 70th to 87th.

There was, indeed, plenty of shakeup across the board with four top-10 teams falling over the weekend.
The AAC East is once again well represented with three teams occupying spots in the polls.
C. moved up to 9 in the Coaches ans stayed put at 10 in the AP after once again surviving a test from Memphis. Cincinnati leapfrogged from 25 to 20 in the AP and 21 in Coaches despite a bye.
As far as other Group of Teams trying to put themselves in the NY6 conversation, San Diego State, Appalachian State, and Utah State are lurking with all of those teams receiving votes.
