Pirates Make Top 25 Splash, Ranked 14th After WVU Win

East Carolina is in the Associated Press Top 25 poll for the first time in nine years. The Pirates come in at No. 14 after beating previously
eighth-ranked West Virginia 24-3 yesterday. The Mountaineers have
dropped all the way to No. 25.

Following its sluggish 26-14 win over Ohio, Ohio
State has fallen from third to fifth in the new Associated Press
Top 25.

The Buckeyes, who played without star tailback Chris Wells
yesterday, will have a chance to move back up in the poll when they
visit top-ranked Southern California on Saturday.

The Trojans had the weekend off and got 33 out of a possible 65
first-place votes from a nationwide media panel. Georgia is second
with 23 first-place votes. Oklahoma is third, followed by Florida.

Missouri is sixth with LSU, Texas, Auburn and Wisconsin rounding
out the top 10.
