Amway Coaches Poll Released

New, 2 comments

The Pre-Season Amway Coaches Poll has been released. Find out where to Cowboys will be ranked to start the season.

Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports

The first Amway Coaches Poll of the college football season has been released. Let's just say it's not nearly as optimistic for the Pokes as the Sagarin Ratings. This is the first time Oklahoma State has missed the poll's Top 25 since 2010. They finished 13th in the final AP ranking that season.

Oklahoma State wasn't totally unmentioned though, as they received the same number of points as their first opponent received first place votes. If the list extended out the Cowboys would come in at 30th in the country.

It may be a bit of a good omen for Gundy and company to be over-looked. Auburn was left of the pre-season poll a season ago, and they ended up playing for the National Title.

Oklahoma received three first place votes of their own, to secure their position a top the Big 12.  Baylor, Kansas State, and Texas are also ranked.
