Ohio State is still #1 with 59 of a possible 65 first place votes. Auburn, Southern California, West Virginia and Florida round out the top 5.

Other ranked Big 12 Conference teams are #7 Texas, # 21 Nebraska and # 25 Missouri, which is one of three new teams in this week's poll. OU's next game will be against Texas in 13 days.
