College Football Rankings 2011: South Florida, West Virginia Move Up

The University of South Florida and University of West Virginia, which each earned decisive victories in Week 2 of the college football season, moved up in the newest rankings released Sunday afternoon. The Bulls (2-0), who defeated Ball State, 37-7, made the biggest jumped. Last week, USF was No. 22 in the AP Poll and now is No. 20. In the USA Today/Coaches poll, the Bulls were not ranked last week, but are now ranked No. 22.

The Mountaineers (2-0), who beat Norfolk State, 52-12, climbed to No. 18 in the AP Poll after being ranked No. 19 last week, while the USA Today/Coaches Poll has WVU No. 20 after being No. 24 last week.

The University of Pittsburgh was the only other Big East Conference program to earn votes in both polls, but did not crack the Top 25.

The top six teams -- No .1 Oklahoma, No. 2 Alabama, No. 3 LSU, No. 4 Boise State, No. 5 Florida State and No. 6 Standford -- are the same in both polls.
