The West Virginia Mountaineers dropped three spots in the latest AP poll to #15. The drop is recognition that the Mountaineers played a tough conference foe and stayed step for step with them.
In the Amway Coaches poll, the Mountaineers fall to #16.
The Mountaineers now wait to see where they will spend the winter bowl season. The prevailing thought is back to Orlando in the Camping World Bowl against an ACC foe. Some experts are predicting a Backyard Brawl Bowl against the Pittsburgh Panthers but given that bowls have avoided both a Backyard Bowl and Black Diamond Bowl in recent years, my suggestion is to not hold your breath.
