Both Oklahoma and Oklahoma State picked up big wins on Saturday, though only the Cowboys rose in the polls.

OU (3-0 overall, 1-0 Big 12) remained at No. 5 in the AP Poll and the Amway Coaches Poll, both of which were released Sunday. The Sooners are coming off an impressive 37-27 road victory against conference foe Iowa State on Saturday.

OSU (3-0) rose nine spots to No. 15 in the AP Poll while rising four spots to No. 15 in the coaches poll. The Cowboys knocked off then-No. 17 Boise State 44-21 in Stillwater on Saturday.

The Sooners face Army at 6 p.m. Saturday to close its nonconference slate while the Cowboys host Texas Tech at 6 p.m. Saturday to open Big 12 play.

Army is coming off a 28-21 victory against previously-unbeaten Hawaii in West Point, New York. The Black Knights are 2-1 on the season. Texas Tech dropped its first game against Mississippi but have since rattled off consecutive victories, including Saturday’s 63-49 barnburner against Houston.

Red Raider freshman quarterback Alan Bowman was named the Walter Camp National Player of the Week after his impressive performance against the Cougars. Bowman threw for 605 yards, a Big 12 freshman passing record, and five scores.
