AP Top 25: Oklahoma drops to No. 12 after losing to Baylor

·2 min read

Oklahoma tumbled eight spots in the AP Top 25 after losing to Baylor on Saturday.

The Sooners are now at No. 12 after a 27-14 defeat in Waco. The loss dropped Oklahoma to 9-1 and put a very serious dent in OU's playoff hopes. Baylor moved up to No. 11 ahead of the Sooners after the win.

Georgia stayed at No. 1 after beating Tennessee and is now ahead of Alabama at No. 2. The Crimson Tide moved ahead of Cincinnati after thrashing New Mexico State. Cincy beat South Florida on Friday night.

Oregon and Ohio State round out the top five. The Ducks beat Washington State late on Saturday night and Ohio State easily beat Purdue.

Oklahoma was the only team to drop out of the top 10. The only team to enter the top 10 was Ole Miss after it beat Texas A&M. The Rebels are at No. 10 and right behind Oklahoma State. The Cowboys easily beat TCU at home on Saturday night.

Oklahoma's drop out of the top 25 is a likely foreshadowing of what's to come on Tuesday night in the third edition of the College Football Playoff rankings. The CFP committee was much less bullish on OU entering the weekend. The Sooners were at No. 8 in the CFP rankings last week and are probably going to be somewhere in the neighborhood of No. 12 in this week's rankings.
