(STILLWATER, Oklahoma / October 15, 2017) – The Oklahoma State football team returned to the top 10 in the national polls this week, coming in at No. 10 in the Associated Press Top 25 and No. 11 in the Amway Coaches Poll.
It is the fourth week this season that the Cowboys (5-1; 2-1 Big 12) have been ranked inside the top 10 in at least one of the two national polls.
Oklahoma State is coming off an impressive 59-16 win over Baylor this weekend. The Cowboys' Homecoming performance saw several individuals put in impressive shifts on the field, including a 235-yard, one-touchdown day from wide receiver James Washington.
Washington, along with quarterback Mason's Rudolph's 459 passing yards and four total touchdowns, sparked an electric performance from the OSU offense that saw the Cowboys set the team record with 747 yards of total offense.
OSU's win over Baylor marked the eighth time that the Cowboys have started 5-1 or better during the Mike Gundy era. Gundy's Cowboys have now won 13 of their last 15 games overall.
Saturday's win over the Bears also improved OSU to 57-6 in its last 63 games vs. unranked opponents, dating back to 2010. The Cowboys have also won 23 of their last 24 games when playing as a ranked team against an unranked opponent.
Three other Big 12 teams join Oklahoma State in the polls this week. TCU (No. 4/4) leads the pack, followed by Oklahoma (No. 9/9), while West Virginia (No. 23/23) rounds out the quartet.
OSU will continue Big 12 action next weekend when the Cowboys head to Austin for a showdown with Texas at Darrel K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 11 a.m. on ABC.
