STILLWATER – The Oklahoma State football team remained in the top-10 but dropped one spot to No. 9 in the Associated Press Top 25 and No. 8 in the USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll, which were released Sunday.
After entering the top-10 last week, OSU dominated the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, 63-7, on Saturday night. The win over the Golden Lions improved OSU’s home winning streak to 11 games, setting a record for the longest streak in school history, while giving the Cowboys a 3-0 start for the sixth consecutive season.
The top-10 remain largely unchanged in both sets of polls this week, however the Cowboys were jumped by No. 7 USC in the coaches poll and No. 8 Kentucky in the AP Top 25.
Oklahoma State is one of four members of the Big 12 ranked in the polls, as Oklahoma leads the way at No. 6 in both polls, with the Pokes close behind. Baylor (No. 17/17) and Texas (No. 22/19) saw small movement in the rankings this week after wins over in-state opponents. Kansas is the lone school receiving votes in both polls after a 3-0 start, while Iowa State and TCU received votes in the coaches poll.
The Cowboys wrapped up their nonconference slate against UAPB and will now have a bye week before starting the conference schedule. Oklahoma State’s next game will be on the road in a rematch of the 2021 Big 12 Championship game against No. 17 Baylor on October 1
