USF dropped out of both Sunday polls following Saturday’s 57-36 loss at Houston.
The Bulls fell from No. 20 to unraked in the latest Amway Coaches poll and from No. 21 to unranked in the Associated Press Top 25. The team still sits right outside of the Top 25, however, by garnering plenty of votes in both.
They also dropped one spot to No. 41 in S&P+. With eight games of data, we can accurately assume the low 40’s being in their wheelhouse.

USF was part of a purging where seven previously ranked ballclubs are fell out of the polls after losing to unranked teams.
In the G5, C. still leads the pack by moving up to No. 9 in both polls. Houston jumped all the way up to No. 17 in both following the three touchdown win over the Bulls while Mountain West leaders Utah State and Fresno State both enter the Top 25 for the first time this season.
Of course, we will see where College Football Playoff committee slots all of these teams when their first batch of rankings drop on Tuesday.
