Oklahoma Sooners Remain in 10th in Coaches Poll

The Oklahoma Sooners close, hard fought, win in their Big 12 game with the TCU Horned Frogs cost them a spot in the AP Top 25 poll, but they stayed put in the Coaches poll. The Sooners, ranked 10th coming into the week, held their ground after their 20-17 win on Saturday.

In the AP Top 25 poll, Oklahoma dropped to 12th place, falling below the UCLA Bruins. However, in the Coaches Poll, USLA remains in 13th, ranked below Oklahoma, the South Carolina Gamecocks, both of whom sit below UCLA in the AP rankings. In the Coaches poll, the Sooners also sit above the LSU Tigers, who have one loss on the season.

The AP poll sees three one-loss SEC teams in the Top 10, but the Coaches only ranks two of the teams in the Top 10. The other big difference in the two polls, is that the Coaches poll ranks the Ohio State Buckeyes in third, ahead of Clemson, while the AP has those roles reversed.

As this is the last year of the BCS, the Coaches poll is the only one of the two polls that matter when it comes to national title ranking, so the Sooners higher ranking here means much more than the AP voters.
