Pitt Football Falls out of the AP Top 25 After Loss to Miami

Published

on

A loss to a 3-4 Miami squad, unsurprisingly, has knocked Pitt out of the Top 25 in the Week 10 AP Poll.

Pitt fell from No. 17 to the highest vote-getter in the “Others Receiving Votes” category after the 38-34 loss at Heinz Field Saturday. While the loss may have been deflating in every sense of the word, Pitt continues to control its own ACC destiny.

Georgia (1,575 points, 64 first-place votes) remains the consensus top-ranked team in the nation, coming off a 34-7 win over Florida. The top four teams remain the same from the Week 9 poll with Cincinnati (1,455 points), Alabama (1,413 points) and Oklahoma (1,382 points) checking in as the second-, third- and fourth-ranked teams in the poll.

Michigan State (1,340 points) jumped to No. 5 after a huge win over then-No. 6 Michigan in East Lansing, Michigan to round out the Top 5.

Ohio State (1,296 points) dropped a spot to No. 6 despite a win over then-No. 20 Penn State and Oregon (1,233 points), Notre Dame (1,067 points), Michigan (1,048) and Wake Forest (1,025 points) complete the Top 10.

Wake Forest remains the top-ranked ACC team, jumping into the Top 10 for the first time in the poll era. The Demon Deacons throttled Duke, 45-7, to remain the only unbeaten team in the conference.

Wake Forest is also the only ranked ACC team currently, Pitt and North Carolina State falling out of the poll in recent weeks.

Pitt, however, did receive 117 points to lead off the “Others Receiving Votes” category, and North Carolina State’s 104 points leaves the Wolfpack just behind the Panthers. No other ACC team received any votes.

Good. Embarrassing program for decades. They haven’t earned a top 25 ranking. Garbage program. Build a stadium on campus….zero college atmosphere. Tear down half of the shithole Oakland and build a complex. Half assed program

So why did you bother commenting on a ‘half assed’ program? 👀

I smell a nitter. A better idea would be to tear down the Lasch building after what went on in that den of filth. #JoeKnew.

It’s like being a Washington Generals fan. Non stop pain. Hopefully we can limp into the ACCCG. I’ll be at the Duke game. If your gonna criticize you better be there supporting.
