TCU climbed one spot to No. 7 after dispatching Kansas State in primetime. The Wildcats fell from 17th to 22nd in the ranking setting up a ranked-on-ranked matchup for OSU in Manhattan next Saturday.

Texas dropped back out of the ranking after losing in Stillwater. With 48 votes, the Longhorns are the first team out of the ranking and join Baylor as the only non-ranked Big 12 teams to receive votes.
