Oklahoma Leads Three Big 12 Teams in New AP Poll, Iowa State Drops Out

Big 12 football

The Associated Press college football poll released its first regular season version on Sunday, which saw a ton of changes, as the preseason poll included teams from the Big Ten and Pac-12, who ended up postponing their seasons.

The new poll saw three Big 12 teams in the mix, with Oklahoma up two spots to No. 3, Texas moves up five spots to No. 9 and Oklahoma State is now up four places to No. 14. The Sooners and Longhorns both had big wins on Saturday, while Oklahoma State’s opener vs. Tulsa was postponed to next Saturday due to COVID-19 concerns with the Tulsa program.

Iowa State fell from the rankings after the Cyclones lost to Louisiana-Lafayette, who are now ranked 19th in the country.

Just missing the Top 25 was Baylor and West Virginia, the first two teams to receive votes but not be ranked. Also getting votes in the Big 12 was TCU, Iowa State and even Texas Tech.
