College Football Playoff Rankings - Week 14

Oklahoma State appears poised to climb into the top four and into the playoffs

The College Football Playoff Committee released its top 25 ahead of conference championship weekend with Georgia firmly holding on to No. 1 followed by Michigan, Alabama and Cincinnati to round out the top four. The top four teams in the final rankings, which will be released on Sunday, will compete in the College Football Playoffs. 

Oklahoma State remains the highest-ranked Big 12 Conference team, moving up two spots to fifth following a 37-33 win over Oklahoma and ending a six-game skid against the Sooners. Baylor dropped a spot to ninth due to the lack of style points and Oklahoma slides to No. 14. 

Oklahoma State appears to have a path to the College Football playoff if they take care of business in the Big 12 Conference Championship against Baylor. Georgia meets Alabama in the SEC Championship and the Bulldogs are an early touchdown favorite. If Alabama were to pull off the upset, Oklahoma state would need Michigan to lose Iowa in the Big Ten Championship or Cincinnati suffer an upset loss to Houston in the AAC Championship.
