Big East in the rankings and my ballot

West Virginia remains the only ranked Big East team this week as the Mountaineers improved to 3-0 on Saturday against Maryland.

Despite the win, they dropped one spot in the AP poll to No. 22 while remaining 21st in the coaches' rankings. The Mountaineers are also 22nd in the new ESPN Power Rankings.

I've still got Pitt ranked, and I guess I'll be proved right or wrong on Thursday night when the Panthers host Miami. Here's my ESPN ballot for this week:

1. Alabama

2. Ohio State

3. Boise State

4. TCU

5. Oregon

6. Texas

7. Oklahoma

8. Nebraska

9. Wisconsin

10. Florida

11. Arkansas

12. Arizona

13. South Carolina

14. Utah

15. LSU

16. Iowa

17. Michigan

18. USC

19. Auburn

20. Miami
