Oklahoma Schools Rise in Latest College Football Playoff Rankings

The latest 2023 College Football Playoff rankings were released on Tuesday night, with four teams from the Big 12 still standing after the conclusion of the regular season.

Despite securing the top seed in the Big 12 after a 57-7 victory over Texas Tech on Friday, Texas (11-1, 8-1) stayed put at No. 7 in this week’s Top 25. The Longhorns are in a position to make an argument for the College Football Playoff with a win over Oklahoma State in the Big 12 Championship but would benefit in a big way from a Florida State loss to Louisville on Saturday.

Oklahoma (10-2, 7-2) rose one spot to No. 12 after a 69-45 win over TCU in Week 13. The Sooners are one of four teams vying for likely just two spots in at-large bids for a New Year’s Six Bowl. However, like Penn State, Missouri, and Ole Miss, they don’t have any remaining chances to impress the committee and are at the mercy of the teams playing on Championship Saturday.

 

Oklahoma State (9-3, 7-2) escaped an upset bid from BYU in Stillwater on Saturday, and claimed their spot in the Big 12 title game with a 40-34 2OT win over the Cougars, thanks to a five-touchdown performance from Ollie Gordon. The win moved them up two spots to No. 18 in this week’s CFP Poll.

Kansas State (8-4, 6-3) fell to Iowa State (7-5, 6-3) in a snow-laden edition of Farmageddon on Saturday night, 42-35. The loss knocked Kansas State down six spots from No. 19 to No. 25 in the penultimate CFP Top 25.
