College Football Rankings: Maryland Still Receiving Votes In The USA Today Poll

God bless those people at USA Today who still have some faith in your Maryland Terrapins. Even though they lost a crushing game to the Florida St. Seminoles on Saturday, The Terps are still receiving three votes in the latest version of the poll; which is just about how many they were receiving last weekend.

Maybe the voters saw that interception that clearly wasn't, and wanted to take some pity on the Terps by refusing to drop them out of the conversation all together. They haven't beaten a "good" team all season long, so I find it hard to believe that the Terps earned those three votes on merit.

Like it was in the AP Poll, the ACC has three teams ranked in the Top 25 of the USA Today. Virginia Tech is in the lead at 14th, right on the cusp of being eligible to be an at-large bid to a BCS game. Of Course if they don't win the ACC Championship and the automatic BCS bid that comes with it, the loss will probably drop them out of at-large consideration, so the whole thing is moot. Florida St. and North Carolina St. are the other two schools, ranked at 21st and 23rd respectively.
