Yesterday, the UConn Huskies football team claimed the inside track for the Big East's BCS bid and today they're getting a little love from the AP voters. The Huskies are listed in the "Others Receiving Votes" category of the latest AP poll, with 16 points. That's good enough to put the Huskies in 29th place. As a conference, the Big East finally cracked the Top 25 with West Virginia coming in at 23.
The Huskies didn't get nearly as much love from the voters in the Harris Poll. There, they received no votes, which, according to the Harris voters, makes the Huskies, at best, the 46th-best team in the country. I'll note without additional comment that Syracuse, which lost to Boston College Saturday, a week after the Huskies destroyed them, received three points in the Harris poll.
No one in the coaches' poll pulled for UConn either -- the team failed to crack the top 36.
Of course, none of this matters because if the Huskies win on Saturday, all the voters in the world couldn't keep them out of the BCS.
