What does South Florida have to do to crack the national polls?

A monumental, 26-23 overtime victory at No. 17 Auburn didn't do it, even though USF outplayed the Tigers and would have won in regulation if not for four missed field goals.

Incredibly, Auburn still has more votes than USF (131 to 115) in the USA Today Coaches' Poll.
