AP Poll: OU, Iowa State, OK State Move Up, Texas Falls from Top 25

Big 12 football

The latest edition of the AP Poll features three Big 12 teams moving up, while one falls from the Top 25.

Iowa State is now the highest-ranked Big 12 team in the AP Poll after beating the Texas Longhorns on Friday in Austin in a game that (essentially) clinched them a spot in the Big 12 Championship Game. The Cyclones come in at No. 12, up three spots, and just head of the Oklahoma Sooners, who had their game against West Virginia postponed due to COVID-19. OU moved up one spot this week.

Then the Oklahoma State Cowboys, who took care of business, but had to hold on against Texas Tech, moved up two places to No. 19 this week. The Longhorns were ranked No. 20, but fell out of the Top 25 in the AP Poll this week. Frankly, that doesn’t seem fair since it was a field goal game they led the first 58 minutes, but such is life in the AP Poll.

So here’s a full rundown of the Top 25.
