Following an easy win over South Dakota, the Oklahoma Sooners were able to hold off LSU and stay put at No. 4 in this week’s SB Nation FanPulse rankings. 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 in this week’s poll:
- Ohio State
- Notre Dame
- Penn State
- Texas A&M
- Michigan State
- Washington State
- Iowa State
- Mississippi State
Here are the notable variations between the OU poll and the national poll:
- The fans once again had Oklahoma ahead of the Georgia Bulldogs, who rank third nationally.
- Oklahoma fans bumped Army back into their top 25 following the Black Knights’ narrow loss at the Big House. If any fan base respects what that team is capable of, it’s OU fans. Unsurprisingly, Michigan fans also included them in their top 25.
- As far as Michigan is concerned, OU fans have them one spot higher than their national ranking. Yes, we can all relate to Saturday’s struggles.
- OU fans dropped Texas to No. 12, while the national poll has them at No. 11. Conversely, OU fans slotted the Iowa State Cyclones one spot higher than their national ranking.
