It wouldn't matter if we drop in the polls if we come out and continue winning. If we haven't lost a game by the time we play UF, we would still be ranked the same as if we won by 8 points or more at UCF. What difference does a few spots in the poll make at this point in the year? We lost to jawja, be thankful we are in the top 15.
A win is a win and UCF could win all their remaining games.
I still expect us to pull away in the second half and win by 14-17 points, but I just want us to leave Orlando 3-1.
