AP college football rankings, Week 7: WVU moves up to No. 5

The Week 7 AP college football rankings are currently being released, and West Virginia is up to No. 5 after its victory over Texas.

1. Alabama
2. Oregon
3. South Carolina
4. Florida
5. West Virginia

Kansas State had an easy victory this week and was in front of WVU last week, and West Virginia's win over Texas was a close one, so I figured the Wildcats would stay ahead of the Mountaineers. That WVU entered the top five will be cause for even more excitement in Morgantown. West Virginia and Kansas State play one another October 20 in what figures to be a huge matchup, assuming they're each able to beat unranked opponents next week.

There was, as anticipated, plenty of movement in the rankings this week, as No. 3 Florida State, No. 4 LSU and No. 5 Georgia all lost. All three teams now find themselves outside the top five.

The rest of the top 25 has yet to be released, as of 11:43 Sunday morning. Kansas State will presumably be No. 6.

UPDATE 11:54 a.m.: Here are the full rankings.
