After Baylor loss, Sooners fall to No. 12 in AP Poll

·1 min read

The Sooners are having a very bad weekend. A trip to Waco, Texas, to play the Baylor Bears went poorly and the Sooners ended up coming back to Norman with their first loss of the season.

On top of that,they fell in the USA Today AFCA Coaches Poll as well as the Associated Press’s Top 25 poll. In the AP Poll, the Sooners fell eight spots from No. 4 to No. 12 following their 27-14 loss.

Baylor, who beat them, slots just above them at No. 11, while fellow Big 12 foe Oklahoma State has entered the top 10 at No. 9.

While the College Football Playoff isn’t really on Oklahoma’s mind as it stands, the Sooners are at least in a reasonable position to find themselves back into at least the top seven if they can win out the rest of their games.

Georgia, Alabama, Cincinnati, and Oregon lead the way as the top four teams in the country again as each won this past weekend. It’s important to note that the Crimson Tide leapfrogged the Bearcats.

Filling out the rest of the Top 10 in order is Ohio State, Notre Dame, Michigan State, Michigan, Oklahoma State, and Ole Miss.

The Sooners’ loss knocks them down to their lowest position in any poll this year and marks the first loss in November after 23 consecutive wins.

Oklahoma will look to bounce back when they host their final home game of the season against the Iowa State Cyclones who lost on a heartbreaker to the Texas Tech Red Raiders, 41-38, on a 62-yard field goal.
