Oklahoma State Moves Up In The Rankings

Cowboys move up to No. 15 in USA Today Coaches ranking and climb to No. 16 in the Associated Press poll

The Oklahoma State football team continued its rise through the USA Today Coaches and Associated Press polls, as the Cowboys were slotted at No. 15 and No. 16, respectively, in Sunday's rankings.

With its thrilling 33-26 overtime win over West Virginia on Saturday, Oklahoma State moved to 6-0 for the fourth time under head coach Mike Gundy. After J.W. Walsh's 2-yard run in overtime put the Cowboys ahead, the OSU defense sealed the victory with a strong defensive stand.

This week’s ranking marks the highest for Oklahoma State in 2015, and extends a string of five-consecutive weeks in the national polls. 

OSU is joined in the rankings by three other Big 12 schools, including Baylor (No. 2/2), TCU (No. 3/3) and Oklahoma (No. 19/19). 

It is still a long way off but this at least sets the stage for Oklahoma State to finish October 8-0 heading to November when they will play all three of the other ranked teams in the Big 12 in TCU, Baylor, and OU (in that order) all at home. The Cowboys will take a week off before welcoming Kansas for their next contest, which is set for Oct. 24 at Boone Pickens Stadium.
