AsNo.lInAPGridPoll By The Associated Prtss Oklahoma, a latter day power in college football, took over as the No". 1 team in the Associated Press poll today, much in the-same style as the 1950 club brought the Sooners their one and only national championship. It's the first time Coach Bud* Wilkinson's crew has held the top rating this season, although they've been near the top in each of the seven previously weekly polls. Similarly, Oklahoma's 1950 champs didn't make the top in the weekly poll until Nov. 21. On the next to last ballot of the season. More Orange Lustre Oklahoma's new role adds even more lustre to the Orange Bow! clash which undoubtedly will sent the Sooners against Maryland" — the club they ousted from the No 1 spot. Maryland, even by extending its winning streak to 13 games by beating L9uisiana State 13-0 lasl weekend, couldn't cope with the shift in favor among th" nation's sportswriters and sp-. l ers that gave Oklahoma a , . 115 first place votes in the heaviest balloting of the season. The Terps, who had 74 first place votes to Oklahoma's 54 last week, pulled 89 from the 283 ballots cast in this week's poll. On a point basis, however, the Sooners — who ran their winning string to 26 by whipping Missouri 20-0 Saturday — had a much,smaller edge over Maryland. On the basis of 10 points for first, 9 for second, etc., the Sooners totaled 2,466 to Maryland's 2,415.

The Wolverines, onetime leaders and third last week, tumbled to seventh after being upset 25-6 by Illinois. Michigan State, beaten only by the Wolverines, replaced Michigan in a move from fourth. The Spar tans got 44 first place votes and 2,051 points. UCLA, Notre Dame and West Virginia (the only other major unbeaten-united club left) followed the leap-frog advance past Michigan.
