Well the new polls have WVU third and Louisville fifth (Texas is the only one loss ahead of them). So I'd say if either wins out they would remain number 2. WVU would stay ahead of Texas and Lousiville would probably jump Texas for beating WVU. Auburn doesn't really have anyone to improve their resume and Florida's games against Georgia and FSU don't look as important either.

I'm not sure if it is the voters that decide it though. I'm not sure how the computer ranking works but if Florida ends up with 1 loss is ranked third in both polls but second in the computer rankings would that put them in front of or behind a WVU team that would be second in both polls but maybe somewhere around 10 for the computer rankings?

I think wins over Rutgers, Pitt and Louisville/WVU might be enough to push WVU/Louisville high enough up in the computers. I'd hope so. Louisville/WVU and Rutgers are undefeated, and Pitt has lost just two games, one to Rutgers.

If the difference between 2nd and 3rd place in the computer polls stays about the same, then the lower ranked team in the human polls would go above the higher ranked team if they were about 3 or 4 slots above them in the computer rankings.

So yes, in this case, if the Big East teams can't get within 3 or 4 slots of Florida in the computer rankings, then their chances aren't very good.
