OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Oklahoma Baptist University of Shawnee and Oklahoma City University each finish in the top 10 among NAIA schools in the US Sports Academy Directors' Cup standings.

The standings measure the overall on-the-field success of college athletic programs.

OBU finished fourth in the NAIA standings despite not winning a national championship in any sport. The Bison finished in the top four nationally in five sports -- men's cross country, basketball and outdoor track and women's indoor and outdoor track.

For OCU, it's the eighth straight year the Stars have finished in the top 10 in the standings. OCU won NAIA titles in men's golf and women's golf and lost in the national championship game for men's basketball this past school year.

Southern Nazarene University of Bethany finished 27th and Oklahoma Christian University of Oklahoma City was 43rd.

Finishing atop the standings for the second straight year was Azusa Pacific University of California.
