Sooners knocking on the door of the top 15 in latest AP Poll

Oklahoma is slowly building momentum as a team to watch out for. After dominating Tulsa, 66-17, the Sooners continue their ascent in the AP Poll. Oklahoma is No. 16 in the nation in the latest AP Top 25.

Oklahoma looked much better than some of their other counterparts; we saw multiple top-25 teams struggle on Saturday.

At the top, the Georgia Bulldogs remain the top team in the country after they avoided a scare from the South Carolina Gamecocks at home. Behind the Bulldogs, we have Michigan at No. 2 and Texas at No. 3, who slid up one spot. Florida State is No. 4, moving one spot down after struggling with a scrappy Boston College team on the road.

Rounding out the top five is Lincoln Riley’s USC Trojans, who were on a bye this week.

In the rest of the top 10, we have Ohio State at No. 6, followed by Penn State, Washington, Notre Dame, and Oregon at 10.

Notably absent from the top 10 is the Alabama Crimson Tide, who are 13th. They looked abysmal in a road game against the University of South Florida. The Crimson Tide pulled away in the fourth quarter for a 17-3 win, but they have big quarterback issues.

Kansas State bows out of the AP Poll after a last-second loss to Missouri. With its loss, Texas and Oklahoma are the lone Big 12 schools in the AP Top 25.
