Watch them for a bit and if the same turtle always gets the sunny spot then there needs to be a 2nd basking spot/lamp. Of the 90 gallon tank, how many gallons are actually water, empty/basking/air and the portion that is water... how much is full of logs and rocks?
You might find that even giving them a 2nd basking spot that one will sit on top of the other. That behavior may be companionship, dominance... normal behavior. that part I'm not familiar with the reasoning behind it.
