These are the first rankings after games have been played.Of course, there were bound to be changes after the first round of games. A few teams moved up, while others took a tumble.No team fell further than Florida State. Ranked 19th in the preseason, the Seminoles fell to ninth in the “Also Receiving Votes” category.The reason for the drop was last night’s season-opening debacle against Virginia Tech. The Seminoles were outplayed in every phase of the game and lost 24-3 at home to the Hokies.It was as ugly a debut as you could imagine for new FSU head coach Willie Taggart.”…the Hokies deliver the dagger here in Tallahassee!” pic.twitter.com/XCFFprRp6j— ESPN CollegeFootball (@ESPNCFB) September 4, 2018Fortunately for the Seminoles, there is plenty of season left. They have four very winnable games in a row and should be 4-1 going into an October showdown with Miami.Assuming the ‘Noles win a few in a row, they will be back in the rankings sooner rather than later.last_img
