OSU Maintains Top National Ranking

Updated:

Press Release OSU:

OklahomaState men's cross country will enter this weekend's Cowboy Jamboree as the No.1 team in the nation, according to the U.S. Track & Field and Cross CountryCoaches Association (USTFCCCA) poll, which was released today.

This is OSU's sixth-straight week at No. 1, dating back to last season. This isalso the Cowboys' second-longest stint at the top, behind an eight-week stay atNo. 1 in 2011. OSU received 11 of the possible 12 first-place votes.

According to this week's poll, the nation's top two teams will be in Stillwateron Saturday--Oklahoma State and Northern Arizona--setting up a monster No. 1vs. No. 2 showdown at the Jamboree.

"Something like this doesn't happen very often in cross country," OSU coachDave Smith said. "When we make the schedule we don't know who will be rankedwhere, but Northern Arizona has come to the Jamboree several times in the pastfew years. They've beaten us here and we've beaten them. Both programs haveplenty of respect for each other. We also have Michigan who is ranked at No.28, and Furman, which is receiving votes and will surprise some people thisyear. The field is good all the way through, which is exciting for the sport. It'salways great to have good competition early in the season."

On the women's side, OSU is No. 22 this week, and is still the highest-rankedteam in the Big 12.

OSU cross country will be in action this Saturday, Sept. 28, when it hosts the76th-annual Cowboy Jamboree, in Stillwater.
