After a complete game on all three phases, the Mountaineers are 9th in the latest Coaches Poll and 10th in the Associated Press. Teams in the bottom 20 did not lose enough to get Oklahoma State ranked, which could have year-end implications if West Virginia is still vying for a playoff spot in December.
The Baylor Bears remain the top ranked Big 12 team and Oklahoma is the only other team to be ranked. Alabama retains its number one position in both polls while Michigan moves up to number two. Clemson is at three and Washington is number 4. Louisville rounds out the top 5.
