The Oklahoma and Oklahoma State football teams picked up wins Saturday, but one went up and one went down in the AP poll.

The Sooners remained at No. 5 in the Amway Coaches Poll and fell to No. 7 in the Associated Press poll. Texas moved to 20th in the coaches poll and 19 in the AP poll. Saturday’s matchup in Dallas, which will be featured on College GameDay, will be the first time since 2012 both teams are ranked.

The Sooners (5-0 overall, 2-0 Big 12) and Longhorns kick off at 11 a.m., and it will be televised on FOX.

The Cowboys remained at No. 21 in the coaches poll and moved to No. 25 in the AP poll after its 48-28 road victory against Kansas on Saturday. The Cowboys have a lot of injuries to address before they return home to face Iowa State.

The Cowboys (4-1, 1-1) and Cyclones face off at 2:30 p.m., and it will be televised on ESPN or ESPN2.
