Breaking down AP Top 25 poll: Oklahoma State on the rise

In the most recent edition of the Associated Press Top 25 college football poll, Oklahoma State Cowboys saw itself move up four spots without playing a single snap.It's not exactly a big surprise, as four teamsOhio State, Penn State, Oregon, and Wisconsindisappeared from the poll with the Big Ten and Pac-12 not playing football this fall.But, that doesn't mean every voter just moved OSU up four spots in their individual polls. Adam Zucker of CBS Sports Network provided the Cowboys with their biggest bump up from the preseason, moving the Cowboys up 12 spots from 23rd to 11th There was one guy who apparently saw something he didn't like. Colten Bartholomew of the Wisconsin State Journal, moved the Cowboys down from 19 to 22, the lowest anyone had OSU ranked this week. Everyone works their poll differently, so I'll assume Bartholomew didn't move OSU down so much as he moved other teams up. Like, for instance, West Virginia, who has actually played and won a game this season. He has the Mountaineers ranked two spots ahead of OSU at No It's early in the season. I try not to read too much into polls at this point. But, an impressive win Saturday against Tulsa could go a long way to convincing pollstersand fans for that matterthat OSU is for real this season.
