Canes up to 15th in AP Poll

Posted Sep 8, 2013

Following its win over 9th-ranked Florida, The University of Miami is now ranked in the top 15 for the first time since 2010.

The Hurricanes entered the game as the highest non-ranked team in the AP Poll. The Hurricanes had the 26th most votes as they entered Saturday's game against Florida.

Miami won the game by the score of 21-16, and made a jump all the way to 15th in the national rankings. It's the highest the Hurricanes have been since October of 2010. It's the first time they've been ranked in the Al Golden era, and it's the first time a Golden team has ever been ranked among the top 25.

Florida dropped to 18th following the loss. 10th-ranked Florida State is Miami's only remaining regular season opponent currently ranked. Clemson, the ACC's highest ranked team, jumped over Ohio State and is now ranked 3rd.

The Hurricanes will be off this week, followed by a home game against Savannah State next Saturday.
