NCAA Football Rankings, Week 8: West Virginia plummets to No. 15 in Coaches' Poll

The latest college football rankings were released Sunday, and the West Virginia Mountaineers plummeted from No. 5 to 15 in the USA Today Coaches' Poll. The tumble is a result from Saturday's 49-14 loss to the Texas Tech Red Raiders. WVU's first loss of the season, which came in blowout fashion, helped the Red Raiders (5-1) move into the rankings at No. 20. Texas Tech was not in the rankings last week.

Overall, the Alabama Crimson Tide and Oregon Ducks remained No. 1 and 2. Alabama (6-0) received all 59 first-place votes.

The rest of the top 10 featured some shuffling, as the Kansas St. Wildcats, Florida Gators and Notre Dame Fighting Irish all moved up into the top 5 after big victories and losses by other schools. The LSU Tigers, Oklahoma Sooners, South Carolina Gamecocks, USC Trojans and Florida St. Seminoles round out the top 10.
