After last week's big win at Norman and defeating bottom of the barrel Texas Tech, Oklahoma State has moved up in this week's AP Top 25 Rankings. Oklahoma State is now ranked No. 20 in the country, moving up five from last week - where they were ranked No. 25. As of now, the Cowgirls are in third place in the Big 12 sitting behind Texas and Baylor, who are both very good and OSU will face each one more time this year. Also, they should be a lock for the NCAA Tournament and here are some of this week's projections.
