Not much movement for Oklahoma, Oklahoma State in polls

OSU is 13th, OU 16th in Associated Press rankings.

After convincing wins in their season openers, both Oklahoma State and Oklahoma stayed relatively stagnant in The Associated Press and USA Today coaches polls released Tuesday.

The Cowboys remained at No. 13 in the AP poll and 14th in the USA Today coaches poll following their physical 21-3 victory over Mississippi State in Houston. The Sooners stayed at No. 16 in the AP poll but moved up one spot to No. 15 in the coaches poll after beating Louisiana-Monroe 34-0.

The lack of upsets on the first weekend of college football largely prevented OSU or OU from moving up in the polls. The only team previously ranked ahead of the Cowboys and Sooners that lost was Georgia, but that defeat came on the road at Clemson, which climbed to No. 4 in the AP poll and No. 5 in the coaches poll after that victory.

OSU next plays at Texas-San Antonio at 11 a.m. Saturday, while OU hosts West Virginia at 6 p.m.
