AP poll update: All voters now have Oklahoma State on their ballot

After Saturday’s 21-3 dismantling of Mississippi State, all the AP voters believe in Oklahoma State.

At least, believe enough to put the Cowboys on their ballot.

Sports Illustrated’s Andy Staples, the only voter who left OSU out of their top 25 in the preseason, officially joined the party this week by ranking the Cowboys 19th.

Despite the convincing win, the Cowboys’ No. 13 spot in the AP poll (and No. 14 ranking in the USA Today poll, for that matter) did not change. But that was to be expected, as the only team in front of OSU to lose in Week 1 was Georgia, and the Bulldogs didn’t deserve to drop that far for falling on the road to Clemson, a top-10 team with an early Heisman frontrunner at quarterback in Tajh Boyd.

Here’s a look at how the votes shook out, courtesy of pollspeak.com:

Highest ranking: 6 (John Clay, Lexington Herald-Leader)
Lowest ranking: 19 (Andy Staples, Sports Illustrated)
Most common ranking: 14 (11 voters  ranked the Cowboys here)
