Cowboys, Sooners continue to rise in AP Poll with wins

Oklahoma State moved up another spot in the AP Football Top 25 Poll following Saturday’s victory at Iowa State.

The Cowboys (10-0) came from behind to claim a 35-31 win over the Cyclones in Ames. And while the win would not be categorized a “big” win, it was big in that it was a win and OSU picked up its 10th victory with no losses.

That was good enough for voters move the Pokes one more notch up the rankings to No. 4.

On the other hand, the win might be considered to be “big” in light of the loss the Cowboys took at ISU in the 2011 season, the only loss during that 12-1 run.

Oklahoma also moved up in the rankings, back into the top 10 at No. 7, after beating Baylor, 44-34, in Waco. The Sooners (9-1) are making a case for themselves as well in the national talk about the four teams to be selected to participate in the College Football Playoff.

Clemson, Ohio State and Alabama remained in the top three spots and in that order.
