College Football Rankings: Miami Hurricanes Back In The Top Ten
The college football season is only three weeks old but already there is a developing story that the nation should keep an eye on. The Miami Hurricanes, after several sub-par seasons, are back in the top ten.
The new college football AP rankings have been released and the Hurricanes made the biggest leap, moving from number twenty all the way to number nine. Miami made the jump after an impressive victory over Georgia Tech on Thursday night.
Miami is a program that has been down since joining the ACC. The Hurricanes were supposed to help build the conferences credibility, but instead Miami has crumbled under the pressure. Now, however, it appears that the Hurricanes are positioning themselves for a run at the conference title.
Already haven played two ranked teams in Florida State and Georgia tech, the Canes will now have the tough task of going on the road to face number eleven Virginia Tech. Should they survive that game, their next opponent will be number ten Oklahoma.
Florida remained on top in the AP poll despite a lackluster performance at home against Tennessee. The Gators received fifty-five of the sixty first place votes. Texas remained number two, and Alabama moved up from four to three.
USC and BYU were the biggest losers in the polls. The Trojans were upset by Washington, and it cost them their top ten ranking as they fell to number twelve. BYU, who was trounced at home by the Seminoles, dropped to nineteen. FSU re-emerged in the top twenty five, coming in at number eighteen.
