NEW YORK – The Oklahoma Sooners are the No. 1 team in the AP college football poll entering week three of the season, a ranking that sets a new milestone in college football polling history.

Oklahoma received the top ranking entering week three despite not playing during week two due to a bye week.

The Sooners will face its highest ranked opponent of the season in the No. 5 Florida State Seminoles in Tallahassee on Saturday.
