It was not a good weekend to be a top ten team

This Beat Visitor poll has, of course, been removed from the sidebar now that its question has been answered by tonight's loss to the Terrapins. Of the 85 people who answered the question "The current Rutgers Stadium home win streak, which began in 2005, will end..." only one respondent had the correct answer.

With Florida, Oklahoma, West Virginia, Texas, and Rutgers all losing, and even USC only squeaking by, this was an awful week to be ranked in the top ten.
The question of where (if anywhere) the Scarlet Knights end up in the national rankings will be answered tomorrow afternoon, but it seems clear that the next two visitors to Rutgers Stadium (Cincinnati & South Florida) will now be ranked higher than the Knights, who will now need to see what they are truly made of.
