Oklahoma State fell eight spots in Sunday’s updated Coaches Poll after taking a 41-13 loss to Oklahoma on Saturday.

The rankings free-fall ties for the most precipitous drop this week among ranked teams with Wisconsin, which also dropped eight spots after a 10-point loss to Northwestern on Saturday.

OU, on the other hand, climbed three spots up to No. 14 in the latest rankings after its decisive win. The reshuffle puts OSU, at No. 22 now, fourth among Big 12 teams in the poll behind OU (14), Iowa State (15) and Texas (21).

25 Tulsa 5-1 120

The loss to OU dropped OSU to 5-2 on the season and to an unfavorable spot as the conference race heats up. There remains a path for the Pokes to win the conference — or at the very least compete in the title game — but it’s a convoluted one now that would require misfortunes from other teams while simultaneously running the table.
