Oklahoma dropped to the Big Twelve's third ranked team in the AP Poll

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Oklahoma may still be #1 in our hearts but now they're #18 in the polls after being shocked by the Texas Longhorns in the Cotton Bowl on Saturday. The loss was their first of the season dropping them six spots in the AP and eight in the Coaches.

Baylor now becomes the highest ranked team in the Big Twelve (#12 in both polls) followed by Texas Tech (#15 in Coaches, 16 in AP). Oklahoma and Oklahoma State swap spots in the AP and Coaches as the Big Twelve's third highest ranked team.
