On Sunday, the USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaching Survey released its top four 25 rankings for the week.
There was no movement in the top five, with Alabama retaining the top spot, followed by Georgia, Oklahoma, Oregon and Texas A&M.
West Virginia received 19 votes after beating No.15 Virginia Tech. The Hokies came out of the top 25.
The Mountaineers are on the road to face Oklahoma on Saturday at 7:30 a.m. and air on ABC.
The survey is conducted weekly throughout the regular season using a panel of 65 head coaches at Football Bowl Subdivision schools. The panel is chosen by lot, conference by conference plus independents, from a group of coaches who have indicated to the American Football Coaches Association their willingness to participate. Each coach submits a Top 25 with a vote for first place worth 25 points, second place 24, and so on up to one point for 25th.
