Their wins Saturday were quite different.

Oklahoma State won with offense, with touchdowns on five of its six first-half possessions in a 56-35 win over Texas-San Antonio.

Oklahoma won with defense, holding West Virginia to a single big play in a 16-7 win that couldn’t have been different than last year’s 50-49 win over the Mountaineers in Morgantown.

Both teams are moving up the polls, though.

The Cowboys moved up one spot to No. 12 in the Associated Press poll and three spots to No. 11 in the USA Today Coaches poll.

Even with its shaky offensive performance, Oklahoma moved up two spots in both poll--to No. 14 in the AP poll and No. 16 in the coaches poll.

Texas, which had been No. 15 in the AP poll and No. 16 in the coaches poll, dropped out after its 40-21 loss at BYU. Southern California also dropped out of both polls after its loss to Washington State.

Alabama remains a clear No, 1 in both polls, with Oregon at No. 2.

Notre Dame, which hosts Oklahoma on Sept. 28, dropped to No 21 both polls after losing to Michigan.

OSU and OU are the top two Big 12 teams in the poll. Baylor is at No. 22 in both polls and TCU is at No. 24.

The SEC has seven teams in both polls, with Ole Miss coming in at No. 25.
