After dominating the Hoosiers in their first ever Big Ten game, the Terrapins find themselves mentioned in the polls. After a brief stint in the Top 25 last season before getting embarrassed by national champions Florida State, Maryland hasn't received votes to be back since, until now. Maryland received five votes in the AP Poll after defeating Indiana, putting their name on the ballot.

Although the Terps are still on the outside looking in, it's a step in the right direction for the 4-1 (1-0) Terps as they head into the biggest game of the young season, a Big Ten home opener against 20th ranked Ohio State.

The Big Ten has four teams currently slated in the Top 25 with Michigan State, Wisconsin, Nebraska and Ohio State representing the conference. Maryland is the only B1G team in the "receiving votes" section. Here are the rest of the rankings:
