No, that title is not a misprint. I did not neglect an “s” on the word “vote.” After getting into the win column against Samford following a disappointing loss to Virginia Tech that dropped the ’Noles out of the AP top 25, FSU once again saw its votes decrease, receiving just a lone vote in this week’s poll.
Florida State remains behind four other Florida teams. UCF rose from No. 19 to 18th, and Miami also gained a spot, moving from 22nd to No. 21. South Florida received three votes. UF, which had squeaked into the poll at No. 25 following week one, did not garner a single vote after losing to traditional SEC powerhouse Kentucky.
