The Oklahoma Sooners moved up one spot to No. 9 in this week’s AP Poll. Five teams in last week’s top 10 were on a BYE, including OU. Keep in mind, the rankings that matter are compiled by the College Football Playoff committee, and that poll will be released this Tuesday at approximately 8 p.m. CT on ESPN.

- Both the Baylor Bears and Kansas State Wildcats rose in this week’s AP Poll. Going forward, Oklahoma needs both Big 12 teams to continue winning for resume-building purposes.
- LSU and Alabama square off this coming weekend, as do Penn State and Minnesota. Depending on how the initial CFP rankings look later this week, the top 10 could see a sizable shake-up with two of those undefeated teams notching their first loss of the season.
- Both Oregon and Utah remain the Pac-12’s last hopes of reaching the College Football Playoff, and after passing road tests on Saturday, they’re on a collision course to meet in the conference championship game. The Ducks and the Utes will each have the next week off.
- With SMU losing to Memphis on Saturday, Cincinnati is currently the nation’s highest-ranked Group of Five team. If the Bearcats can run the table and win the AAC, they’ll most likely take the G5’s bid for a New Year’s 6 Bowl.
