Redshirt freshman quarterback Spencer Rattler and redshirt junior wide receiver Charleston Rambo celebrate after the Sooners score a touchdown during the Sooners' season opener against Missouri State on Sept. 12.

The Sooners moved up to No. 3 in the Associated Press poll released Sunday after defeating Missouri State, 48-0 on Saturday.

Oklahoma remains the top nationally-ranked team in the Big 12 Conference and trails only Clemson and Alabama in the poll.

Redshirt freshman quarterback Spencer Rattler threw for 290 yards and four touchdowns in the first half of a convincing OU victory on Saturday, while defensive coordinator Alex Grinch's unit pitched a shutout for the first time since his arrival in Norman.

The Sooners' next game will be against Kansas State at 11 a.m. CT on Saturday, Sept. 26 in Norman.
