Oklahoma rose four spots in both the AP and coaches’ top 25 rankings — to No. 14 to No. 10, respectively — after its dominating 41-20 victory Saturday at Texas Tech.
The Sooners’ next opponent — archrival Texas in Dallas’ Cotton Bowl next Saturday — fell to No. 15 in both polls after the Longhorns lost at home to West Virginia on Saturday night.
The Mountaineers, meanwhile, leapt into the top five in both polls — No. 5 in the AP poll and No. 4 in the coaches’ poll.
Kansas State, which accounts for Oklahoma’s only loss of the season, beat in-state rival Kansas on Saturday and rose to No. 6 in the AP poll and No. 5 in the coaches’ poll.
