The latest USA Today Coaches Poll was released Sunday, and like in the AP Poll, the West Virginia Mountaineers saw a jump into the top five.
The Mountaineers are now ranked fourth in the nation following their 48-45 win over Texas on Saturday. They were ranked seventh last week, but made the jump in after losses by LSU, Georgia and Florida State.
West Virginia now has only Alabama, Oregon and South Carolina in the way of the top spot, but with Alabama receiving 58 of the 59 first-place votes, it won't be easy.
Here are the complete rankings.
Others Receiving Votes: Arizona State 61, Baylor 52, Michigan 33, Northwestern 31, Michigan State 27, Ohio 23, Nebraska 18, Texas Tech 11, Duke 10, Wisconsin 8, Western Kentucky 7, North Carolina State 6, Louisiana-Lafayette 6, Oklahoma State 5, San Jose State 4, Louisiana-Monroe 3, Nevada 2, Toledo 2
