The latest college football rankings were released Sunday afternoon. Did Rutgers University crack the top 25?

Before losing Saturday, 44-20, at the University of Connecticut, the Rutgers University football program had hopes of cracking the top 25 college football rankings in Week 14. Instead the Scarlet Knights (8-4, 4-3), who received six votes in last week's AP Poll, didn't receive a vote in this week's rankings, released Sunday.

The Syracuse Orange, who dropped their fourth straight game in a loss to the University of Cincinnati, 30-13, didn't sniff the top 25. As for the Big East Conference, West Virginia University, which defeated the University of Pittsburgh, 21-20, Friday night in the Backyard Brawl, was its lone representative.

Overall, LSU remains No. 1, while Alabama, Oklahoma State, Stanford and Virginia Tech round out the AP Poll's top five, respectively. Here's the rest of the top 25 rankings:
