College Sports: College football Top 25 polls: Oklahoma and Texas both drop while one Big 12 team sneaks back in at No. 25

Four Big 12 teams found themselves in the latest edition of the AP top 25 poll. Oklahoma (No. 7) remains the top-ranked local team, while West Virginia (No. 9) and Texas (No. 19) both held onto their spots in the top 25 after Week 5 wins.

Oklahoma State bounced back after a Week 4 loss to Texas Tech by topping Kansas and re-entering the top 25 at No. 25.

Even though Texas and Oklahoma both had impressive Week 5 wins — Oklahoma doubled up Baylor, 66-33, as QB Kyler Murray threw for 6 TDs and Texas picked up its first road win against Kansas State in 16 years — each school actually dropped one spot in the AP poll compared to their standing last week.

Texas A&M and TCU are both in the “receiving votes” portion of the AP poll. The Aggies are the equivalent of 31st in the poll and the Horned Frogs would come in at 33rd if the list was expanded beyond 25.

In the coaches poll, Oklahoma remains in the top 5 at No. 5. West Virginia is No. 8, Texas is No. 20 and Oklahoma State is No. 21. A&M and TCU are in the “receiving votes” portion of that poll, too, but TCU is receiving more votes than A&M in it.
