Cowboys Fall in Both Polls

The Cowboys look to rebound against Iowa State this week.

After another loss in the Bedlam series yesterday, the Cowboys fall in both the AP and Coaches Poll.

The AP Poll is surprisingly mild, with the Cowboys only falling one spot to No. 12. Their spot was occupied by Ohio State, who suffered a humiliating 55-24 loss to the Iowa Hawkeyes in Kinnick Stadium.

The Top 10 has quite shakeup following Week 10. Only Alabama, which retained its No. 1 ranking and Georgia (No. 2) are in the same positions as last week. Every other team in the poll has either moved positions or made new appearances to the poll. Notre Dame climbed up from fifth place to claim the third spot, while Clemson moved up from No. 6 to claim the fourth spot. OU climbed three spots to round out the Top 5.

Despite continuing it’s undefeated season with a win over Indiana, Wisconsin fell two spots in the poll. It may be the Badgers’ weak schedule is catching up with them, as the Badgers haven’t played an AP Top 25 team to date. They do, however, play No. 25 Iowa this week, followed by No. 21 Michigan the week after. The weak SOS is likely doing more harm than good for the No. 6 Badgers at this point.

The rest of the Top 10 is as follows: Miami (7), TCU (8), Washington (9) and Auburn (10). Auburn climbed six spots into the Top 10 after defeating Texas A&M 42-27 in Aggieland.

The West Virginia Mountaineers continue their season-long flirt with the Top 25, jumping back in at No. 23 after (hopefully) cooling down the red-hot Iowa State Cyclones. Speaking of the devils, the Cyclones are the fifth and final Big 12 team in the Top 25, coming in at No. 24.


The Cowboys fell five spots to No. 15 in the Amway Coaches Poll. They join OU (7), TCU (9) and Iowa State (23) in the Top 25. West Virginia failed to secure the No. 25 spot by a mere 16 votes.
