Oklahoma State ranked No. 11 AP poll after overtime win at Texas

Oklahoma State’s College Football Playoff aspirations are still alive, but the Cowboys have fallen slightly in the rankings.

After narrowly escaping Austin with a 13-10 overtime win over Texas, the Cowboys fell to No. 11 in the latest edition of the Associated Press Top 25 after being ranked 10th last week. In the Amway Coaches Poll, they dropped one spot from last week to No. 12.

Oklahoma State, which was once ranked as high as No. 6 before a home loss to TCU, improved to 6-1 on the season and 3-1 in Big 12 play following the overtime scare against the Longhorns. With the entire Week 8 top-10 notching wins over the weekend, though, Oklahoma State will have to wait until next week in hopes of inching any closer towards the top of the college football pecking order.

The Pokes will have plenty of opportunities to do just that throughout the coming weeks with several more resume-bolstering opportunities still on the schedule.

Next week, Oklahoma State will head to Morgantown, W.Va., for ranked Big 12 battle with West Virginia before returning home to host Oklahoma for Bedlam.

Oklahoma State is favored in each of those two matchups, as well as its final three against Iowa State, Kansas State and Kansas, per ESPN’s FPI.
