STILLWATER - The Oklahoma State football team gained spots in both the USA Today Coaches and Associated Press polls released Sunday, coming in at No. 12 and No. 14, respectively.
At No. 12, this marks the Cowboys’ highest ranking since being voted as the sixth-ranked team in the country on Dec. 1, 2013.
Oklahoma State was inactive over the weekend due to the bye week, but sits at 6-0 after defeating West Virginia, 33-26, on Oct. 10.
This week’s ranking marks the Cowboys’ sixth-straight week in the national polls after debuting at No. 25 on Sept. 13. Oklahoma State has been ranked in eight-consecutive seasons under head coach Mike Gundy, dating back to the 2008 season.
OSU is joined in the rankings by three other Big 12 teams, including Baylor (No. 2/2), TCU (No. 3/4) and Oklahoma (No. 15/17).
The Cowboys will return to action on Saturday, Oct. 24, as they host Kansas at Boone Pickens Stadium.
