The Terps’ 1-3 record in their last four games has fans losing faith in the direction of the program.

Seven 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 7 poll, you can still join to share your input HERE.

Unsurprisingly, Maryland football was nowhere to be found in this week’s Top 25 after being upset by Purdue, 40-14, in embarrassing fashion on the road.

Fan confidence dropped to 57.9 percent after the Penn State loss, but then jumped back up slightly to 68.4 percent after a 48-7 win over Rutgers. Now with the Terps 1-2 in Big Ten play and a tough schedule ahead, confidence has dropped to a season low of 53.3 percent.

Below are the Week 7 rankings, according to Testudo Times readers.

Four new teams jumped into the rankings this week, with Minnesota at No. 17, Missouri at No. 19, Baylor at No. 21 and Cincinnati at No. 22. Both the Golden Gophers and Bears are undefeated with 6-0 records.

That means that Texas A&M, Oklahoma State, UCF and Virginia all dropped out of the Top 25 this week following losses this past Saturday.

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

The rest of the SB Nation college network put undefeated Appalachian State at the No. 24 spot, while dropping Washington completely out of the rankings after dropping to 5-2 on the season.
