NORMAN, Okla. — The Oklahoma Sooners slid to No. 4 in the latest AP Top 25 Poll after the team's nerve-wracking win over Tulane.

Georgia jumped to Oklahoma's previously-held No. 2 spot after its win over Clemson, behind No. 1 Alabama and ahead of No. 3 Ohio State.

The new poll dropped Tuesday after a surprising week for college football teams in Oklahoma.

OU narrowly made it out of their matchup with the unranked Green Wave with a 40-35 win.

Heisman candidate Spencer Rattler threw an interception in the first quarter that kept the momentum in Tulane's favor on both sides of the field, somewhat easily scoring on the Sooners' defense multiple times.

The Sooners (1-0) will face Western Carolina in Norman on Saturday.
