Despite two SB Nation Boston college football program -- the University of Connecticut and Boston College -- each earning victories this past week, neither school sniffed the AP Poll's top 25 rankings, released Sunday afternoon.
Instead, it was the Atlantic Coast Conference's Virginia Tech, ranked No. 5 in the AP Poll, that made a statement by jumping into the top five. Last week, the Hokies were ranked No. 6.
Meanwhile, West Virginia University (No. 22) is the only Big East Conference school in the top 25.
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:
5) Virginia Tech
9) Boise State
11) Michigan State
14) South Carolina
16) Kansas State
22) West Virgina
23) Penn State
24) South Mississippi
