If motivation was ever a factor for the Oklahoma Sooners that issue may have been resolved. Today, following their bye week, OU dropped completely out of the rankings when they fell from the AP Top 25.
TCU jumped back into the poll this week following their most impressive win of the season, 33-3 over SMU, on Friday night. The Frogs are the second highest ranked team in the Big 12 at #21 while the Longhorns dropped a spot to #22. Baylor’s win over Oklahoma State bumped them up to #13, keeping the Bears as the highest ranked team in the conference.
Oklahoma would be #27 in the latest AP poll, if it extended out that far.
