WVU Football Just Outside AP Top 25 Ranking This Week

Published

on

West Virginia University received some recognition in this week’s Associated Press Top 25.

Despite not playing Saturday, the Mountaineers (1-0) received 59 votes in this week’s poll, released Sunday afternoon. WVU has the second-highest vote total among non-ranked teams. West Virginia’s opponent next week, Oklahoma State (1-0), fell four spots from No. 11 to No. 15 this week after a lackluster win over Tulsa Saturday.

The Mountaineers will be looking to beat the No. 15 Cowboys for the first time since 2014.

Also of note in the poll, two of WVU’s rivals found themselves ranked with Pitt at No. 21 and Marshall at No. 25 this week.
