OSU No. 13 in newest AP poll

Unlucky, no. Make that "lucky 13" for the Oklahoma State Cowboys. After beating No. 5 Oklahoma and dismantling No. 11 Missouri, OSU was rewarded with a big 11-spot jump in the new Associated Press poll.

...Last week's No. 1 sheds its immortality, and the blemish on Duke's win-loss record takes the Blue Devils down to No. 3.

...The Big 12 maintains four teams in the Top 25 in Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Missouri.

...After a 20-point win by Oklahoma State, the Cowboys and Tigers nearly swap positions in this week's poll. OSU, last week's No. 24, breaks into the top 15, and makes a big 11-spot jump to land at the No. 13 spot.
