Oklahoma enters the top 10 of SI.com's college football power rankings after beating Baylor.

With four of the top 11 teams in last week’s Power Rankings falling Saturday, Week 11 was a good shakedown week. At this point, it feels safe to say the playoff field will comprise some group of about 10 teams, barring a massive pileup over the remaining weeks of the season.

I’d include each of the top nine teams in this week’s Power Rankings in that group, plus North Carolina if the Tar Heels were to stun Clemson in the ACC title game and get a little help from some upsets. The field is definitely narrowing, but we’ve got three more weeks to turn 10 teams into four.
