NORMAN — After Oklahoma’s 69-13 rout of Florida A&M, the Sooners find themselves sharing their No. 5 ranking in the AP poll with another school located in Tallahassee, Fla.

Oklahoma and Florida State are now tied in the No. 5 spot, according to the Associated Press, while OU remained alone in the No. 5 spot in the USA Today Coaches Poll.

Oklahoma State, following its 59-38 loss at Arizona, fell completely out of both polls. The Cowboys were 16th in the coaches’ poll and 18th in the AP Poll last week.

Arkansas, fresh off its collapse and loss against Lousiana-Monroe, took the second-largest fall ever out of the AP poll, dropping from a No. 8 ranking to being unranked. The Razorbacks stayed in the coaches’ poll at No. 21.
