Looking to solidify its place in the National Championship discussion, the Kansas State Wildcats crushed West Virginia, 55-14, and stay at No. 4 in this week's AP Poll. Alabama remains the team to beat.
Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein is looking more and more like a Heisman contender, and he put in yet another sparkling performance to lead the Wildcats past West Virginia on Saturday on the road, and keep his team at No. 4 in this week's AP Poll.
Klein was 19-21 passing, for 323 yards in the 55-14 rout in Morgantown.
With the loss, the Mountaineers dropped from No. 17 all the way down to No. 25 -- their second consecutive week of falling eight or more spots.
Meanwhile, the top six spots in the poll stayed the same. Alabama, Oregon and Florida make up Nos. 1-3, with Florida being the only team outside of Tuscaloosa to get a No. 1 vote. Behind the Wildcats, Notre Dame and LSU stay at No. 5 and 6.
This week's lone rankings newcomer is No. 23 Louisiana Tech, who thumped Idaho 70-28 on Saturday. The Bulldogs have lost just once this year -- a 59-57 shootout at the hands of No. 22 Texas A&M.
