College Football Rankings: Week 6 Polls Not So Kind To Big East

Just one team from the Big East makes the cut in the Week 6 AP Poll Top 25 and the Week 6 USA Today coaches poll. And West Virginia isn't likely to have any company in the near future.

The Mountaineers are No. 16 in the Week 6 AP Poll and No. 19 in the Week 6 coaches poll, and lost their only college football rankings running mate, South Florida, after Pittsburgh blew out the Bulls on Thursday night.

To make matters worse for the conference: The only teams in the also receiving votes section of the coaches poll are ... South Florida and Pittsburgh. And it's somewhat unlikely that they'll be able to get back into the poll with impressive wins over Big East teams, meaning that the conference getting another ranked team is likely a matter of waiting for other teams to lose.
