Oklahoma Sooners jump three spots to No. 10 in latest College Football Playoff rankings

With the latest College Football Playoff rankings out, Bedlam between Oklahoma and Oklahoma State is officially a top-10 showdown in all three rankings.

The Sooners jumped up three spots to No. 10 after hanging on to beat Iowa State, 28-21. Oklahoma had one of its best defensive days against the Cyclones. OU harassed ISU senior quarterback Brock Purdy to the tune of seven sacks, 11 tackles for loss and three turnovers.

Meanwhile, Oklahoma State took care of business at Texas Tech and jumped a pair of spots to No. 7 nationally. The Cowboys defense continued the tear that unit has been enjoying of late. OSU pitched a shutout in its 23-0 victory and held the Red Raiders to just 108 total yards of offense.

It was the first time Texas Tech had been shutout in any game since a 1997 game at Nebraska and the first time in a home game since Arkansas did so in a Southwest Conference game back in 1987.

Oklahoma and Oklahoma State got more good news in the form of Baylor’s ranking. The Bears beat Kansas State, 20-10, and moved up to No. 8 in the latest CFP rankings.

There was no change at the top. Georgia has been ranked No. 1 in each of the four CFP rankings in 2021. Fresh off its 56-7 beatdown of Michigan State, the Ohio State Buckeyes supplanted Alabama with the No. 2 spot.

Alabama dropped one spot to No. 3 and then Cincinnati rounded out the top four by checking in with the highest-ever ranking for a group of five school at No. 4 nationally.

Just on the outside looking in were No. 5 Michigan and No. 6 Notre Dame. The rest of the top 10 went as follows: Oklahoma State at No. 7, Baylor at No. 8, Ole Miss at No. 9 and Oklahoma at No. 10.

It’s no guarantee that OU makes it into the final CFP top four, but it’s apparent that Oklahoma can pick up a pair of quality wins this week and next if the Sooners can beat Oklahoma State twice.
