Sooners Hold At #16 In AP Poll After Shootout In Lubbock


It was far from pretty in West Texas on Saturday night but it was a fourth consecutive win for Oklahoma. The Sooners are now sitting at 5-2 on the season but AP writers weren’t impressed with OU’s 66-59 shootout win. While teams like LSU, North Carolina, Auburn, and Florida were making a move up, Oklahoma was holding steady in the same spot as last week at #16. In fact, outside of top-ranked Alabama, only three schools failed to budge in this week’s AP poll, with Tennessee and Western Michigan joining the Sooners.

Baylor remains the top-ranked team in the Big 12 at #8 but they are also joined in the Top 10 this week by West Virginia. Oklahoma State is trending back towards the Top 25 and is sitting at #28 should the poll extend that far.
