The West Virginia Mountaineers received votes in both the AP and USA Today Coaches Poll, both released Tuesday September 6. Alabama remains the #1 team, but not unanimously, in both polls following their 52-6 dismantling of #20 Southern California. Clemson, Florida State, Ohio State and Michigan round out the AP Top 5. Stanford replaces Michigan in the Coaches Poll.

Texas is the highest ranked team in the AP Poll, entering the poll at #11 after beating #10 Notre Dame in a 2OT thriller. The other ranked Big 12 teams are: Oklahoma (#14 AP, #13 Coaches), TCU (#15, #12), Oklahoma State (#22, #17) and Baylor (#23, #19).

West Virginia received 1 vote in the AP Pol and 8 votes in the Coaches Poll. Our Sweet Caroline-loving neighbors to the north received 7 votes in the AP & 9 in the Coaches. Obviously the coaches view beating Villanova a tougher challenge than beating Missouri.
