AUSTIN (KXAN/AP) — Four Big 12 teams made it into the latest AP poll released Sunday with Baylor leapfrogging the Longhorns.

No. 14 Baylor jumped ahead of No. 15 Texas based off the perception of Saturday’s results. The Bears looked impressive after defeating Oklahoma State on the road 45-27 while the Longhorns struggled tremendously at home against Kansas in a 50-48 win.

Iowa State also entered the AP poll with a 10-point win in Lubbock against Texas Tech. The Cyclones host Oklahoma State next Saturday.

Oklahoma routed West Virginia 52-14 to maintain its No. 5 spot in the rankings. The Sooners are at Kansas State for a 11 a.m. kick next week.

Texas A&M is in the receiving votes category after its 24-17 win at Ole Miss Saturday night. The Aggies return to Kyle Field next week hosting Mississippi State.
