Oklahoma State In The Rankings - Cowboys Stay Put In Coaches Poll Despite 8-0 Start

OSU is happy to be where it's at

Michael C. Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

After an 8-0 start, many Cowboy fans are still saying, "we'll know more next week." It's sort of true. Although the Cowboys are 8-0, the best teams they've played aren't really that great, with Texas Tech being the best at 5-4. TCU comes to Stillwater next week for a top 10 match up between two of the conferences best four teams.

Now that the AP Poll is out we can analyze it a little. Not much has changed. The 70-point outing from the OSU offense wasn't enough to bump them over Iowa, who beat Maryland 31-15 (yes, the same Maryland who lost to WVU 45-6) or Florida, who won 27-3 over Georgia.

This is sort of weird.
