Pirates Just Outside of New Top 25 AP College Poll

The Pirates received 108 votes in the most recent Associated Press Top 25 college football poll, putting them into the 27th spot as they head into this weeks game against 8th ranked West Virginia.

Southern California has jumped two spots to No. 1 in the AP poll, rewarded by voters for opening the season with a dominant performance on the road against a BCS conference opponent.

Georgia and Ohio State, the preseason Nos. 1 and 2, respectively, started their seasons with glorified scrimmages at home against FCS (formerly I-AA) teams.

USC's 52-7 victory Saturday at Virginia helped the Trojans vault past the Bulldogs and Buckeyes from No. 3 in the preseason. Georgia fell to No. 2 and Ohio State to No. 3.

The voting was close. USC received 21 first-place votes and 1,539 points from the 65-member media panel. Georgia had 20 first-place votes and 1,506 points. Ohio State got 15 first-place votes and 1,497 points.
