Sooners, Cowboys suffer fall in polls

After a wacky weekend of football in the state of Oklahoma, neither Oklahoma nor Oklahoma State did themselves a favor in the standings.

After narrowly escaping Army in their 28-21 overtime victory, the Sooners (4-0 overall, 1-0 Big 12) dropped to No. 6 in the Associated Press Poll while staying at No. 5 in the Amway Coaches Poll.

The Sooners resume Big 12 play at 2:30 p.m. Saturday when Baylor (3-1, 1-0) comes to Norman.

The Cowboys (3-1, 0-1) fell out of the AP Top 25 poll but remained in the coaches poll at No. 21. Texas Tech (3-1, 1-0) defeated the Cowboys, 41-17, in Stillwater.

OSU hits the road for the first time this season, traveling to Lawrence, Kansas, to face the Jayhawks (2-2, 0-1) at 11 a.m. Saturday.
