After another win in Norman, the Oklahoma Sooners have leapfrogged the Wisconsin Badgers for the No. 5 spot in this week’s AP Poll. OU also comes in at No. 5 in the Coaches Poll, as spot the Sooners have occupied since the preseason.

With Oklahoma State moving into the AP’s top 25, the Big 12 now has four teams in each poll. Can anyone name another team from this conference that will even threaten to crack the top anytime soon? After the performances we saw from Iowa State and Kansas State this weekend, the Big 12 received one combined vote between the remaining six members, with one coach ranking the Longhorns No. 25 in is poll.
