Despite a victory against the Thundering Herd in the Friends of Coal Bowl, West Virginia dropped a spot in the latest AP Poll.

Southern California remains the top team in the weekly Associated Press Top 25 College Football Poll, but the Trojans' lead is dwindling.

Second-ranked LSU, fresh off an impressive and lopsided win over Virginia Tech, is now just 12 points back of the Trojans.

Overall, Southern Cal was given 40 first place votes while the Tigers were given 25.

That's an increase of 19 from last week for LSU.

Rounding out the top five are Oklahoma, West Virginia and Florida.

The second five are Texas, Wisconsin, California, Louisville and Ohio State.

Wrapping up the top 25 are UCLA, Penn State, Rutgers, Nebraska, Georgia Tech, Arkansas, South Carolina, Virginia Tech, Oregon, Clemson, Boston College, Tennessee, Georgia, Hawaii and Texas A&M.

Appalachian State, the big winner of the week last week with that win over Michigan, didn't crack the top-25 but did receive 19 votes.
