Maryland football received 34 points in the week two AP Top 25 college football rankings following their 32-24 win over Miami on Monday night, which was far more than they received in the preseason poll. That technically makes them the 36th-ranked team in the country. All in all, seven voters placed Maryland in their Top 25, with one ranking them as high as No. 16 in the country.
Here are those people, via Pollstalker:
- Anthony Gimono, Tucson Citizen: 16
- Scott Wolf, Los Angeles Daily News: 17
- Mike Hlas, Cedar Rapids Gazette: 19
- Ray Ratto, CSN Bay Area/San Francisco Chronicle: 22
- Mitch Vingle, Charleston Gazette: 24
- Chadd Cripe, Idaho Statesman: 25
- Doug Lesmerises, Cleveland Plain-Dealer: 25
As Patrick Stevens of the Washington Times notes, only one of those seven men could be considered East coast writers, so there's really no case of homerism at play. For the full list of NCAA football rankings, visit SBNation.com.
