Although it is little consolation after the events in Winston-Salem last night, NC State maintained its ranking in the AP poll. The Wolfpack came in at #25 in the latest poll, dropping four spots.

The AP poll means less now with the CFP poll taking precedence. What matters less is the defunct Coach’s poll, where NC State dropped five spots to #24. Everything still stings today, so it’s hard to care about the polls when we just wanted the win, but it goes on some stat somewhere of the school having a continuous ranking for some amount of weeks, whatever that number is now.
