Coaches Poll Features Five Big 12 Programs

The Coaches Poll has officially been released and it appears as though the Big 10 has taken over the title as the best conference in the nation. With four teams inside the top ten, no other conference can boast those kinds of numbers. However, as we all know, it’s way-too-early to predict how the College Football Playoff Committee will rank these programs.

Rank Team (1st-place votes)
1 Alabama (49)
2 Ohio State (5)
3 Florida State (4)
5 Clemson (7)
6 Penn State
7 Washington
8 Oklahoma
9 Michigan
10 Wisconsin
11 Oklahoma State
12 LSU
13 Auburn
14 Stanford
15 Georgia
16 Florida
17 Louisville
18 Miami
19 Kansas State
20 West Virginia
21 South Florida
22 Virginia Tech
23 Texas
24 Tennessee
25 Utah

With the Big 12 placing half of the conference inside the top 25, the Oklahoma Sooners take home the advantage. Holding down the No. 8 spot, Baker Mayfield and the rest of the gang set their sights on the CFP once again. Yet, there are a few challengers.

The Oklahoma State Cowboys hope to spoil the hopes of conference foes while earning a spot in the Final Four. With a pro-style quarterback in Mason Rudolph and a plethora of receivers, it could very well happen. Finding themselves in the No. 11 position, OSU will look to climb the ladder.
