Despite winning again this week, the Mountaineers have dropped from "Others Receiving Votes" in the AP Poll. They gained a vote in the Coaches Poll to total 9. Both TCU and Oklahoma State dropped out of the Top 25 following losses. You would expect coaches to understand that Oklahoma State didn't actually lose the game but that didn't happen.

Alabama remains the #1 team in the land but this week may provide a chance to see the current dyansty lose as they travel to Oxford, Mississippi to take on Chad Kelly and the Ole Miss Rebels. Ole Miss has beaten the Tide in consecutive seasons.

Texas remains the highest ranked Big 12 team in the AP Poll. Oklahoma is the highest ranked in the USA Today poll. In both polls, the Big 12 has three ranked teams: Texas, Oklahoma and Baylor, not the other undefeated Big 12 team, West Virginia
