Another week, another hard-fought win for the Oklahoma Sooners.
OU's 16-13 win over West Virginia is its third nail-biting victory through four games. Despite a 4-0 record, Oklahoma continues to fall in the polls due to its inability to win games in a commanding fashion.
After dropping to no. 4 in the USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll, Oklahoma also slides to no. 6 in the latest AP Top 25.
Two members of the Big 10 now sit above the Sooners. Penn State (4-0) moves into the four spot after knocking off Villanova, and the Iowa Hawkeyes (4-0) continue to hold steady at no. 5.
After OU, Cincinnati (3-0), Arkansas (4-0), Notre Dame (4-0), and Florida (3-1) round out the top 10.
Arkansas skyrocketed to no. 8 after taking down Texas A&M, 20-10. And Clemson plummeted to no. 25 after falling to NC State on the road.
Dropped from the rankings:
No. 14 Iowa State, No. 18 Wisconsin, No. 21 North Carolina, No. 25 Kansas State
