The Sooners moved up three spots this week to #9, coming in just ahead of Villanova and just behind Alabama. You may remember that Oklahoma beat Alabama 66-61 on January 30th. At that point OU was ranked #24 in the AP Poll.

OU/Texas Game Moved To Wednesday

We’ll have to wait another 24 hours to see if Oklahoma create more disappointed Longhorn faces.

Speaking of Saturday’s double-overtime win, the Sooners have another 24 hours to get their legs back underneath them before hosting #12 Texas. Due to the harsh winter weather the Big 12 announced on Monday that the game would be pushed back from Tuesday to Wednesday evening. No television or tip time has been announced yet.
