Oklahoma State did not move up in the Associated Press’ Top 25 poll Sunday for the first time since Week 4 this season and stayed put at No. 6.

The Cowboys (4-0, 3-0 Big 12) defeated Iowa State 24-21 on Saturday at Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater. The Cyclones dropped from No. 17 to 23 with the loss. Kansas State handled in-state rival Kansas 55-14 and moved up four spots to No. 16.

Oklahoma moved into the top 25 at No. 24 after a 33-14 win at TCU. It’s the first time Sooners have been ranked since they lost Oct. 3 at ISU.

OSU will host Texas at 3 p.m. (FOX) on Halloween in Stillwater. The Longhorns received two votes in the poll.

Clemson and Alabama, remain Nos. 1 and 2, respectively, while Ohio State jumped past Notre Dame and idle Georgia for No. 3 after the Buckeyes’ season-opening 52-17 home win against Nebraska. The Fighting Irish remained undefeated with a 45-3 win at Pittsburgh.

Georgia, which had a bye this past week, moved one spot down to No. 5. The Bulldogs are the only team ranked inside the top-five with a loss, a 41-24 setback at Alabama.
