I see 3. What an I missing? UCF, Memphis, Houston .
Coaches poll has UCF @20, Memphis, Houston, USF and Cincinnati also receiving votes (but not many). Given how ridiculously bad the Coaches poll has been in the past, I wouldn't take too much from it.

Glad to see Buffalo get some recognition. Beat up on Rutgers this past saturday. There BB team was decent this past year. If AAC expands, they should be given some consideration.

Vtech lost to a formerly winless school - how exactly do they deserve votes?
and BC got stomped by winless Purdue and is still getting votes. After Boise got beaten badly by Ok St kinda surprised they are as high as they are.

Oregon moves up a spot after a loss. Holy cow.
They should've beaten a top-10 team. Suggests they're pretty good.
Also, soft spot in the chart -- 13,14,15,17,22,23 teams lost.

I very highly doubt an AAC team would have moved up a spot under similar circumstances and would have been forgotten if it lost to ODU.
