11 Coaches Rank OSU Ahead Of OU In USA Today Poll

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

The Oklahoma Sooners came in at No. 10 and Oklahoma State was No. 13 in the final USA Today Coaches' Poll that was released on Sunday but there were several coaches who ranked the Cowboys ahead of OU in their final poll – 11 coaches, actually, and one of them just so happens to be Mike Gundy.

Gundy ranked Oklahoma State No. 10 and Oklahoma No. 12 in his ballot but that was far from the widest margin of the 11 coaches. That distinction goes to SMU's June Jones.

Jones ranked OSU eighth, while putting the Sooners at No. 13.

Art Briles, the coach of Big 12 champion Baylor, also had the Cowboys higher on his list at No. 6 with OU at No. 7.

Notre Dame's Brian Kelly, whose Fighting Irish lost at home to the Sooners in September, put OSU at No. 10 and OU at No. 13.

Here are the other seven coaches and how they voted, with OSU listed first and OU second:

Akron's Terry Bowden (10, 12), Arkansas State's Bryan Harsin (10, 13), Eastern Michigan's Ron English (11, 12), Georgia's Mark Richt (10, 12), North Carolina's Larry Fedora (13, 14), Northern Illinois' Rod Carney (10, 14) and Utah's Kyle Whittingham (13, 15).

Oklahoma (10-2, 7-2 Big 12) will face Alabama (11-1, 7-1 SEC) in the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 2 and Oklahoma State (10-2, 7-2 Big 12) will face Missouri (11-2, 7-2 SEC) in the Cotton Bowl on Jan. 3.
