A wild Saturday of college football upsets helped Oklahoma and Oklahoma State rise in the latest polls released Sunday.

OU, which beat Kansas 34-19 Saturday in Lawrence following a shocking loss to Texas the previous week, jumped from No. 18 to No. 12 in the USA Today Coaches poll and from No. 18 to No. 17 in the Associated Press poll. OSU, which came off a bye to defeat TCU 24-10 in Stillwater, rose from No. 17 to a tie with LSU for 13th in the Coaches poll and from 21st to 19th in the AP poll.

Baylor is the highest-ranked Big 12 team, moving up to No. 5 in the USA Today Coaches poll and sixth in the AP poll after its 71-7 whipping of Iowa State. Texas Tech, which travels to Norman this weekend, checked in at No. 9 in the USA Today Coaches poll and No. 10 in the AP poll.

OSU next travels to Ames to face Iowa State.

Saturday saw nine ranked teams go down, including No. 3/4 Clemson, No. 6/9 LSU, No. 7/7 Texas A&M, No. 8/6 Louisville, No. 9/10 UCLA, No. 11/9 South Carolina, No. 15/16 Georgia, No. 20/25 Washington and No. 22/22 Florida.

That shakeup means the top 10 of the USA Today Coaches poll now looks like this: No. 1 Alabama (57 first-place votes), No. 2 Oregon (four first-place votes), No. 3 Florida State (one first-place vote), No. 4 Ohio State, No. 5 Baylor, No. 6 Miami, No. 7 Missouri, No. 8 Stanford, No. 9 Texas Tech and No. 10 Clemson.

The top 10 of the AP poll features an identical top 4, followed by Missouri, Baylor, Miami, Stanford, Clemson and Texas Tech.
