Seven votes for Rider; Siena just short of AP top 25

Rider received seven votes in the AP poll released today, while Siena fell just short of moving into the top 25.

The Saints are first in the receiving votes category, with 125 points -- 42 short of No. 25 Maryland. They're second in the receiving votes category in the coaches' poll, 22 points behind Maryland. Syracuse is ranked 24th in the coaches' poll but is unranked in the AP poll, causing the Saints to drop one spot behind in the coaches' poll.

Siena likely needs only one team in the 20s to lose this week in order to move into the rankings.

As for Rider, the Broncs' run in the receiving votes category could be lengthy if they upset Virginia Thursday, especially if they're competitive Saturday at Kentucky.
