Oklahoma jumped two spots to No. 12 in the latest coaches’ poll, and three spots to No. 11 in the Associated Press poll after Saturday’s 35-21 win at Notre Dame.

Oklahoma State, meanwhile, fell to No. 20 and No. 21 in the polls, respectively, after its 30-21 loss at West Virginia.

The Sooners (4-0, 1-0 Big 12) remain ranked behind three one-loss SEC teams — No. 6 Georgia, No. 9 Texas A&M and No. 10 LSU — in the AP poll, and are one spot ahead of LSU in the coaches’ poll.

The Cowboys (3-1, 0-1 Big 12) and Sooners are joined in the rankings by Big 12 bedfellows Baylor (No. 16 in the coaches’ poll and No. 17 in the AP poll) and Texas Tech (No. 22 in the coaches’ poll and No. 20 in the AP poll).

Two-time defending national champion Alabama maintained its No. 1 ranking in both polls after beating Ole Miss 25-0.

The first 2013 BCS Standings won’t be released until Oct. 20. The standings determine the national championship game matchup, using the coaches’ poll, the Harris Interactive poll, which hasn’t begun releasing rankings yet, and computer rankings.

The AP poll has no impact on the BCS Standings.
