Despite the stupid speculation of some that somehow going on the road, at night, and facing a fellow Top 5 team would cause OU to slip from #1, the idiots were proven wrong with the release of the AP and Coaches poll this afternoon. In fact, as it should be, the Sooners strengthened their grip on the #1 ranking gaining first place votes in both polls.
AP Top Five in order (1st place votes) are: OU (37), LSU (14), Alabama (7), Boise State (2), and Stanford. LSU moves back up to #2 from #3 and Stanford moves into the top five after FSU drops out. Actually, FSU drops all the way to #11 which is a little harsh IMO. It's not like last night's game wasn't competitive and OU is the #1 team in the country. Okie State is #7, A&M #8, and Baylor is #17. Texas actually moves up four spots into the Top 20 at #19. Michigan State, Ohio State, Auburn, Arizona State, and Miss. St. all drop out of the Top 25.
Coaches Top Five in order (1st place votes) are: OU (50), Alabama (4), LSU (5), Boise State, and Stanford. Coaches drop FSU even farther, all the way from #5 to #14. Wow! OSU is #6, A&M #8, Texas #18, and Baylor #19.
