Poll Report: Smooth Sailin'

The Top 10 remains unchanged, but Oklahoma's move up means Saturday's struggle will be between two Top 15 teams.

The Longhorns remained a 7th in both polls after their 56-3 stomping of Sam Houston State, but their opponent on Saturday, the Oklahoma Sooners, moved up to 14th in the AP and 13th in the Coach's Poll and will be looking to catapult themselves back into the Top 10.

There were no changes within the Top 10 this week, aside from Virginia Tech dropping out of a tie for 10th in the Coaches' after a 38-27 loss to Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets came back up into the Top 25 at 18th in the AP and 20th in the Coaches' after the win.

Though the positions at the top didn't change, Ohio State tightened its grip on the No. 1 position, now holding all but three first place votes in the AP and all but a single first place vote in the Coaches' Poll.

Despite a close win in College Station, Texas Tech stayed at 24th in the Coaches' and hangs just outside the AP Top 25. The other Texas team that was in the Top 25 last week, TCU, was dropped from both polls after their loss to BYU.

Two additional Big 12 teams currently sit in the Top 25. Nebraska is at 22nd in both and the Missouri Tigers No. 23 in the AP and No. 25 in the Coaches' Poll after moving 5-0 with a win over the 0-5 Colorado Buffaloes.
