Since the 32-27 loss to Northern Illinois, the Toledo Rockets (9-1, 6-1 Mid-American Conference) have beaten both Central Michigan and Bowling Green on the road. With their wins, they're officially ranked in the AP Poll, coming in at No. 24, which is also where they stand in the Massey ratings.
The Amway Coaches Poll, however, has Toledo unranked and their unofficial No. 27 team in the nation with 69 votes behind LSU after they lost their third straight game last night to the MIssissippi Rebels.
Navy Midshipmen is the highest-ranked Group of 5 team (No. 16) after the Houston Cougars lost to the Connecticut Huskies, snapping their perfect season. For what it's worth: UConn was 5-5 heading into the game against Houston; Toledo lost to NIU, who will be heading to the MAC Championship game with a win on Tuesday (or a Toledo loss on Friday).
Also, Iowa got a received a first place vote in the Coaches Poll which is admirable.
