The Oklahoma Sooners jumped two spots to No. 9 in the latest AP Top 25 Poll. Blood Week saw four top-10 teams suffer upsets, so it turned out to be a pretty good week to have a bye (amongst other reasons). LSU and Michigan were the two teams that leapfrogged the Sooners this week after beating Georgia and Wisconsin, respectively.

OU also cracked the top 10 of the Coaches Poll after moving up one spot to No. 10.

The Big 12 has just three ranked teams after Week 7. West Virginia had a disastrous performance in the Riot Bowl that dropped the Mountaineers seven spots to No. 13, while Texas narrowly fended off Baylor despite an early injury to starting QB Sam Ehlinger.

This is your weekly reminder that the AP and Coaches Polls don’t actually matter and really just exist to give fans something to rant about online. The first College Football Playoff rankings come out just over two weeks from now on Tuesday, Oct. 30.

Here are both major polls in their entirety. Big 12 teams in bold.
