After a slip up, the Oklahoma Sooners dropped out of the college football playoff picture temporarily. However, receiving quite a bit of help, Baker Mayfield and the rest of the crew remain in the conversation. Four of the top ranked teams faltered on Saturday shaking up the CFP landscape whil allowing OU to re-enter the top ten.
1. Alabama (61 first-place votes)
2. Penn State
6. Ohio State
10. Oklahoma State
13. Notre Dame
14. Virginia Tech
15. Washington State
16. NC State
18. Michigan State
23. West Virginia
Others receiving votes: San Diego State 56, Texas A&M 46, Iowa State 16, Virginia 10, Kentucky 8, Utah 4, Mississippi State 3, South Carolina 2, Iowa 2, Navy 2, Texas Tech 2, Georgia Tech 1, Marshall 1, Florida State 1
As far as Oklahoma State is concerned, the Cowboys sit just inside of the top ten as well. Routing the Baylor Bears over the weekend, OSU moves up to No. 10 overall with a single loss. There are plenty of arguments to be made. Yet, much football is left to be played at this point as well.
Regardless, the Big 12 places four programs inside the rankings this week. The West Virginia Mountaineers replace Texas Tech after handing the Red Raiders their second loss of the year.
With eight unbeaten teams in the top twenty-five, who shall prevail when it’s all said and done. Let us know in the comments below!
