Maryland football sad vs Penn State 2019 Sarah Sopher / Testudo Times

Five weeks of college football have already gone by, and the latest Testudo Times FanPulse Top 25 poll, is out.

In August, we asked you to sign up for the SB Nation FanPulse community, where readers will be able to vote for their own college football top 25 poll and also participate in surveys. But don’t worry — if you weren’t able to sign up in time for the Week 5 poll, you can still join to share your input HERE.

Maryland football wasn't anywhere to be found in this week’s Top 25 following its 59-0 loss to Penn State last Friday, and fan support of the program has dropped significantly, according to our latest confidence poll.

Fan confidence in the direction of the program was pretty high through the first four weeks of the season, but has now plummeted to 57.9 percent.

Below are the Week 5 rankings, according to Testudo Times readers.

After claiming the top spot in every prior poll, Clemson falls to the No. 2 spot, with Alabama taking over at No. 1. Washington State and Maryland both dropped out of this week’s Top 25, with Kansas State and California entering the rankings.

Outside of those big moves, Penn State moved up two spots after beating Maryland, Ohio State enters the No. 5 spot and Michigan State drops five spots after only defeating Indiana by a 40-31 score, among some other smaller changes.

And here is the top-25 from readers across SB Nation’s college network. This was calculated by averaging all the team-specific polls.

While Testudo Times voters put Kansas State at the No. 25 spot, the rest of the SB Nation college network put Arizona State in that spot. Other sites also put Ohio State above LSU at the No. 4 spot.
