Kevin White leaps back to the front of the pack with another dominant performance.

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

1. Kevin White - Oklahoma learned what we all know...Kevin White cannot be stopped. White continued his receiving rampage against Oklahoma with a 10 catch, 173 yard, one touchdown performance. For the year White has 42 catches for 633 yards and three touchdowns. If White keeps up this pace he will finish the season with 126 receptions for 1,899 yards.

Week 3 Ranking: #2

2. Clint Trickett - Trickett was 25 for 41 for 376 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. Hard to move a guy who has been so steady down, but the two picks were big. If you thought White's projected numbers for the season were crazy take a look at what Trickett is on pace for: 378 completions for 4,800 yards and 27 touchdowns.

Week 3 Ranking: #1

3. Mario Alford - Super Mario was back at it again finishing with 7 catches for 101 yards and another pretty touchdown catch. Alford has 28 receptions for 307 yards and four touchdowns for the year. Through 4 games Alford has one more reception and twice as many touchdowns as he had all last year.

Week 3 Ranking: #3

4. Josh Lambert - Lambert absolutely belted a 54-yarder, and finished the game 2/2 on FG's and 3/3 on extra points. If only the rest of WVU's special teams was as impressive.

Week 3 Ranking: #5

5. Karl Joseph - Joseph was all over the field for the Mountaineers against the Sooners making the impressive hits that we have come to expect from the junior.

Week 3 Ranking: Previously unranked

6. Wendell Smallwood - Smallwood continues to prove how valuable his versatility is to WVU. Against the Sooners Smallwood had 11 touches for 82 yards. For the year he has 352 rushing and receiving yards.

Week 3 Ranking: #6

7. Rushel Shell - Shell again led the Mountaineers in rushing yards fnishing with 15 carries for 60 yards and a touchdown. He also added two catches for ten yards.

Week 3 Ranking: #4

8. Andrew Buie - Buie again got some touches and showed his penchant for hard running averaging 4 yards per carry against a stout Oklahoma defense.

Week 3 Ranking: 9

9. Dreamius Smith - Smith, who has seemed like little more than an afterthought lately, had some impressive runs late in the game and finished with 5 carries for 38 yards and a touchdown. Hopefully, the end of the game against the Sooners can act as a springboard for Smith to become more involved with the offense.

Week 3 Ranking: Previously unranked

10. Nick O'Toole - Boomstache averaged 41.2 yards a punt on 5 punts with a long of 52 yards.
