After six weeks of college football — and five Maryland football games — the Testudo Times FanPulse Top 25 poll has been released.

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

The Terps weren’t recognized in this week’s rankings as they were earlier in the season, but support and confidence among the fanbase is trending upwards after taking a plummet last week.

Below are the Week 6 rankings, according to Testudo Times readers.

The top-two spots in the rankings haven’t changed, as Alabama and Clemson hold their places from last week. However, after a blowout victory over then-No. 25 Michigan State on Saturday, Ohio State comes in at No. 3.

Outside of the top, there was a lot of movement in the rankings, as five teams that were unranked a week ago — Auburn, Arizona State, Wake Forest, Oklahoma State and SMU — have joined the list of best teams in the country, according to Terps fans. Following losses, Cal, Michigan State, USC and Kansas State have been shown the door.

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