This Week In The Traditional Polls for the Group of Five

Well, we’ve now got numerous teams all over the polls, so maybe it’s time to take a weekly look at how we feel about all this, eh?

Team AP Poll USA Today
UCF 10 9
Cincinnati 25 25
USF 23 24
Boise State 39
San Diego State 29 31
Utah State 33 33
UAB 43
Army 42
Appalachian State 31 29
Troy 36
Hawai’i 35 38
Fresno State 44


I guess I can’t be too upset by all of this. UCF achieved exactly what I thought they would; they got passed by a Texas team that beat a top-10 opponent on the road, but still moved into the top 10 in both polls.

The Knights should be a lock for a top-15 spot in the first CFP at this point. Of the nine teams ahead of them in the polls, two (WVU and UT) play each other the week before the first ranking comes out, and two more (Georgia and Washington) play multiple opponents before then that are currently ranked.

Otherwise, I can’t be too disappointed with these rankings as a whole. The other two remaining undefeated AAC teams (USF and Cinci) sneak into the rankings, while Boise dropped like a rock.

I’m maybe bothered that Troy didn’t get any votes in the AP Poll, but I think everything else is about what I would expect.

The polls came out and I’m not upset, what do I do with myself, y’all?
