Oklahoma State Moves into the Top 10 in Three Football Polls

October 17, 2021

STILLWATER – Oklahoma State moved into the top 10 of about every college football poll there is out there, but you have to think they did it with some kicking ad screaming from some of the pollsters. In an oddity when it comes to the Cowboys ranking in the major polls, they are ranked higher in the Associated Press (media) poll at eighth over the USA Today (coaches) poll, where they are ninth. A third poll that we are showing from the National Football Foundation and Football Writers Association of America has the Pokes the same as the A.P. in eighth.

Oklahoma State is 6-0 for the first time since 2015, where they went on to win their first 10 games that season. The Cowboys are one of three Big 12 teams in the top 25 with two other schools, including their next opponent Iowa State getting votes. For the first time ever, the Cowboys have defeated three ranked opponents in succession, but that will end this week as Iowa State is getting votes, but they are not ranked.

Oklahoma State and Iowa State will play in Ames, Iowa on Saturday. The Homecoming game for the Cyclones will kick off at 2:30 p.m. on FOX.

Had to laugh , ESECPN , hates us so much that they doctored their computer input and left us completely out of their top 25. They did include OU , Texas , Iowa State , Baylor . LOL

Advanced stats all hate us. I assume you're talking about FPI which has us at 28, but SP+ is even worse at 32.

Lots of ways to look at that information, but all that is really important is we still control our destiny regardless of any ranking. I know I'd sure feel better if SP+ had us as even a top half offense to go along with our top 10 defense though.
