Oklahoma football ranked No. 5 in 4 AP poll ballots

Not everyone is high on Oklahoma football midway through the season and following four-consecutive close calls—and one loss—against the likes of Baylor, Iowa State, Texas and Kansas State.

The Sooners checked in at No. 10 in the Week 9 Associated Press Top 25, but there were a few AP voters a bit more sold on Oklahoma.

Four AP voters had Oklahoma at No. 5 in their ballots. The voters were Andy Bitter of the Roanoke Times, Bill Landis of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Kirk Bohls of the Austin American-Statesman and Ross Dellenger of The Advocate.

The Sooners were ranked behind a combination of Alabama, Penn State, Georgia and TCU in three of the four ballots. Dellenger had Oklahoma behind Alabama, Penn State, George and Wisconsin, however, and ahead of TCU in their ballot.

The Sooners were ranked No. 6 in two other ballots, No. 7 in seven ballots, No. 8 in eight ballots and No. 9 in 14 ballots.

Reddit’s r/CFB Twitter account compiled all of the Associated Press ballots and put them together nicely in this graphic.

Oklahoma is 6-1 overall and 3-1 in Big 12 play after a thrilling win over Kansas State on Saturday, Oct. 21, in Manhattan, Kansas. The Sooners are back home after a two-week break to face Texas Tech on Saturday, Oct. 28, at 8 p.m. ET.
