The Horned Frog football team fell to No. 3 in both the AP Poll and USA Today’s Amway Coaches Poll on Sunday, getting jumped by the Baylor Bears for the No. 2 spot in both polls.

The shift comes after the Frogs narrowly defeated the Kansas State Wildcats 52-45 Saturday night in Manhattan, Kansas, while Baylor soundly defeated the winless Kansas Jayhawks 66-7 in Lawrence, Kansas.

Ohio State remained No. 1 in both polls. The 27 first place votes for the Buckeyes in the AP Poll were the fewest they received in any week this season, however.

Utah took over the No. 4 spot in the AP Poll after defeating previously No. 23 California 30-24, becoming the last undefeated team in the Pac-12. Previously No. 4 Michigan State fell to No. 7 in the AP Poll after a narrow 31-24 victory over unranked Rutgers.

Elsewhere in the Big 12, Oklahoma fell from No. 10 to No. 19 in the AP Poll after being upset by the lowly  Texas Longhorns 24-17, who had just come off a 50-7 defeat at the hands of the Frogs. Oklahoma State remained undefeated and moved to No. 16 in the AP Poll after defeating unranked West Virginia 33-26.
