Despite playing an FCS team in McNeese, the Cowboys have convinced a few more AP Poll voters to buy in.
A week after earning eight points from three voters, OSU is up to 20 points in the latest AP Poll — good enough for 33rd place.
Oklahoma State beat McNeese 36-14 in week two thanks to two interceptions, including one pick-six by senior cornerback AJ Green, and a couple of goal line stands in the second half by the second and third stringers. The offense was led in the first half by quarterback Spencer Sanders, with 250 yards and three touchdowns through the air and 51 yards on the ground. Receiver Tylan Wallace was easily the star of the show, with 180 yards and three touchdowns on just five catches.
The Big 12 now has just two teams ranked, with Oklahoma dropping one spot to fifth, and Texas dropping three spots to number 12. Iowa State dropped out of the rankings despite not playing a game, but are currently sitting at No. 26 just 26 points behind 25th place Virginia. The Cyclones will have a great opportunity to wow voters this Saturday when they face No. 19 Iowa in Ames with ESPN’s College Gameday — or Amesday this week — in town.
After the Top-25, Oklahoma State sits behind Iowa State, California, Mississippi St., TCU, North Carolina, Army, and Colorado.
