The steady and successful play of Oklahoma and Iowa was rewarded Tuesday, as both teams moved into the top four in this week’s College Football Playoff rankings.
The Sooners (10-1) and Hawkeyes (11-0) fall in at Nos. 3 and 4, respectively, behind top-ranked Clemson and No. 2 Alabama. The two teams moved up at the expense of Ohio State and Notre Dame.
The reigning champs stood at No. 3 in each of the previous CFP rankings this season, but a heartbreaking loss to Michigan State (which rose to No. 5 this week) sent the Buckeyes spiraling down to No. 8.
A three-point win over a three-win Boston College team wasn’t good enough in the committee’s eyes for the Fighting Irish to stay in the top four, and they settled in at No. 6.
Both teams have chances this weekend to re-stake their claims to CFP spots, with Ohio State facing rival Michigan (No. 10) at The Big House and Notre Dame traveling to take on ninth-ranked Stanford.
With wins this weekend, Iowa and Michigan State would meet in the Big Ten championship game in what would amount to a CFP play-in game.
Another matchup that could lead to a CFP shakeup is the Bedlam game between Oklahoma and No. 11 Oklahoma State. The Cowboys tumbled five spots after losing to Big 12 rival Baylor for their first loss of the season. The victory pushed the Bears up from No. 10 to No. 7 in this week’s poll. Although Oklahoma State fell out of the top 10 this week, a win over the archrival Sooners could serve as a shot in the arm while dashing any hopes Oklahoma has of vying for the national title.
