Sooners Advance A Spot In The Coaches Poll

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

The results are in at the polls and Oklahoma, once again, receives mixed results this week.

For the first time since 2011 the Sooners are 3-0 to start the football season. After demolishing Tulsa 51-20 on Saturday afternoon, the Sooners moved up a spot in the Coaches Poll but held steady at #14 in the AP. It marks the third consecutive week that Oklahoma has moved up in the Coaches Poll but the second time in the three weeks of the football season that OU hasn't moved in the AP. The Sooners made their preseason debut at #16 in the AP and have since climbed two spots for #14 following wins over Louisiana-Monroe, West Virginia and Tulsa. They were also 16th in the preseason Coaches Poll but have advanced each week to eventually land at the #12 spot. I feel like I should also use this moment to remind you that the Texas Longhorns were ahead of the Sooners in both preseason polls as well.

Oklahoma State remains the highest ranked team in the Big Twelve (#11 in both polls) followed by the Sooners and then Baylor (#20 AP/#19 Coaches). TCU is gone from the polls this week but Texas Tech appears at #25 in the AP.
