Oklahoma (6-2, 5-2 Big 12) rose to No. 14 in the latest Associated Press Top 25 Poll on Sunday after its dominant 41-13 victory over now-No. 21 Oklahoma State (5-2, 4-2 Big 12).
The Sooners have won five-straight games after an abysmal 1-2 start on the year and would find themselves in the Big 12 Championship game if they win out.
