Both Virginia and national voters dropped the Hoos down two spots.

As opposed to the AP Poll, which saw the Virginia Cavaliers jump all the way up to No. 20 on Sunday, Week 6’s FanPulse poll did not do any such favors for UVA following its bye week, moving the Hoos back to No. 21.

Besides Clemson and UVA, who have been the ACC’s two consistently ranked teams in 2019, Wake Forest entered the mix for the first time on Monday, coming in one spot ahead of UVA at No. 20. The Demon Deacons, who were also idle this weekend, will hope to keep their perfect record intact when they host Louisville in primetime this Saturday.

In other news, now No. 12 Auburn and No. 8 Florida moved in opposite directions - as one might expect given the Gators’ win over the Tigers this weekend. SMU, like Wake, also joined Week 6’s Top 25 after staving off Tulsa 43-37 in triple overtime to improve to 6-0.

Here’s the complete fan-view after six weeks of college football:

Besides voters keeping Virginia ahead of Wake Forest, there were barely any differences between this week’s national Top 25 and Streaking the Lawn’s community poll.

Interestingly, though, Virginia fans’ confidence did drop marginally this week. I guess the bye week really ushered in some new doubt about the direction Bronco Mendenhall is leading this program.
