WVU began the season ranked 12th in the Coaches Poll and have crept into the Top 10, however they will need some help if they want to continue their climb toward the top. They are now the highest ranked team in the Big XII following Oklahoma's loss to Kansas State.

The biggest development of Saturday in the polls came in Oregon leaping over LSU to take over the No. 2 spot in both the Coaches and AP polls.

The full results of the poll can be found here.
