Oklahoma State fell eight spots to No. 14 in the Associated Press Top 25 poll after the Cowboys’ first loss of the season.

The Cowboys (4-1, 3-1 Big 12) were upset 41-34 in overtime by Texas on Saturday in Stillwater. It was OSU’s first loss to an unranked opponent during the regular season since the Cowboys were ranked No. 21 and suffered a 45-35 defeat against Texas Tech on Oct. 5, 2019, in Lubbock.

ISU climbed six spots to No. 17 after a 52-22 win at Kansas Jayhawks, while Texas moved into the top 25 again at No. 22. Oklahoma moved up five spots to No. 19 after a 62-28 win at Tech.

OSU will visit Kansas State at 3 p.m. next Saturday in Manhattan. The Wildcats dropped out of the top 25 from No. 20 after a 37-10 loss at West Virginia. K-State (51) and WVU (44) received votes.

Clemson, Alabama, Ohio State, Notre Dame and Georgia remained the top five teams. There will be a change in the top four next week as the Tigers will visit the Irish in South Bend, Indiana.
