OU takes a tumble in polls

As expected, Sooners take a hit in both of the polls.

Not a shock, but Oklahoma finds itself on the outside looking in as it pertains to the top 25 polls released Tuesday afternoon.

The Sooners, who fell unexpectedly against Houston on Saturday, are now ranked No. 13 in the coaches poll and No. 14 in the AP Top 25 poll.

OU was ranked No. 3 before the season began, but the loss against the Cougars sent the Sooners downward and has Houston ranked in the top seven of both of the polls.

There is still a lot of hope for OU. Unable to get it done in its first ranked contest, the task gets magnified again when fourth-ranked Ohio State comes to Norman.

The Buckeyes won their season opener, scoring a whopping 77 points against Bowling Green. Ohio State is No. 4 in both of the polls.

Alabama, Clemson, Florida State, Ohio State and Michigan comprise the top five of each polls.

Other Big 12 schools ranked are Texas, TCU, Baylor and Oklahoma State.
