NCAA Football Rankings, Week 5: WVU Falls A Spot In AP Top 25

The Mountaineers drop a spot after an uninspiring win over Maryland.


Here are the AP college football rankings for Week 5. Alabama remains in the top spot, and Oregon moves up a spot to No. 2 after trouncing Arizona this week. Kansas State and Oklahoma essentially switch places after the Wildcats' upset of the Sooners, with Kansas State moving from No. 15 to No. 7 and Oklahoma dropping from No. 6 to No. 16.

After a rather unimpressive win over Maryland, meanwhile, WVU drops one spot, to No. 9. (Stanford, which was idle this week, moves from No. 9 to No. 8.) Baylor, the Mountaineers' next opponent, enters the rankings at No. 25 after a narrow win this week over Louisiana-Monroe. Other Big 12 teams joining Kansas State, WVU, Oklahoma and Baylor in the top 25 are Texas (No. 12) and TCU (No. 15).

Other new entries into the top 25 are Oregon State and Rutgers.
