Following a 48-14 win at UCLA, the Oklahoma Sooners come in at No. 5 in this week’s FanPulse Top 25. Sixty-six of the NCAA team brands fan bases voted to create this week’s Top 25, and here’s what the data tells us:

Here’s how Oklahoma fans voted after this past weekend:

  1. Clemson
  2. Alabama
  3. Oklahoma
  4. Georgia
  5. LSU
  6. Ohio State
  7. Notre Dame
  8. Auburn
  9. Utah
  10. Florida
  11. Michigan
  12. Texas
  13. Wisconsin
  14. Penn State
  15. UCF
  16. Oregon
  17. Texas A&M
  18. Washington State
  19. Iowa
  20. Boise State
  21. Michigan State
  22. Washington
  23. Virginia
  24. Maryland
  25. Army

Here are the notable variations between the OU poll and the national poll:

  • Nationally, Oklahoma dropped from No. 4 to No. 5 this week, with LSU passing the Sooners following their win over Northwestern State. Why or how LSU made the jump this week as opposed to last week is a mystery. Very, very odd, indeed.
  • Mike Leach’s Washington State Cougars are one spot higher in the OU poll, which is proof of our love for the former Sooners OC.
  • Once again, OU fans included Army in their top 25, this time at the expense of Herman Edwards’ Arizona State Sun Devils.
  • This isn’t a variation, but for the first time in the history of the poll (small sample size, I know), OU fans’ ranking of Texas aligns with that of the national poll.
