While the other polls may continue to hold an indirect influence on the poll that matters the most -- the College Football Playoff Rankings -- they're still an indicator of where a team should end up. On Saturday, a few top ranked teams suffered losses leading to a shake up in the top five.

The Oklahoma State Cowboys took down the TCU Horned Frogs leading to a leap into the top five ranking in both the AP and Coaches Poll. Joining the folks from Stillwater, the Alabama Crimson Tide shut down Leonard Fournette earning a spot in the top three of the AP.
There's still plenty of football let to be had during the month of November. Moving up to No. 12 in the nation, the Oklahoma Sooners still face the Cowboys along with the Baylor Bears and TCU. It certainly looks like running the gauntlet could toss the Sooners into the playoff conversation.
