OTHERS RECEIVING VOTES:

Auburn 61, Notre Dame 50, Nebraska 35, Wisconsin 29, Michigan St. 16, UCF 7, Arizona St. 3, Mississippi 3, Rutgers 2.

NOTES:

* You know you’ve registered an impressive win when you leapfrog two teams in the top 10 even when neither of those teams lost. That’s what FSU did, moving up from No. 8 to No. 6 after its 63-0 destruction of Maryland. The Seminoles moved ahead of Louisville, which beat Temple 30-7, and Georgia, which needed overtime to survive Tennessee.

* Miami continued its steady upward progress by moving up one more spot to No. 13. The voters were understandably more impressed with the Canes’ win over Georgia Tech than South Carolina’s struggle to put away Kentucky at home. 

* Not surprisingly, Virginia Tech cracked the polls after winning its fifth game in a row and improved to 2-0 in the ACC Coastal Division with its win over UNC.

* Also not suprisingly Maryland dropped out of the polls and failed to receive any votes after its debacle in Tallahassee. The polls give you a sense now of the gap between the ACC’s top four – all of which are ranked in the Top 25 now – and … the rest.
