The College Football Playoff image ended up being more clouded on Saturday, in spite of just one group amongst the top 10 losing.

But Oklahoma’s defeat at the hands of Baylor now produces a possible minefield for the choice committee to browse throughout the remainder of the season. The Sooners, ranked 8th in both of the very first CFP surveys, were currently in problem as far as the eye test was worried. The Sooners at least might have been one of just 2 unbeaten Power 5 conference champs. With their 27-14 loss to the Bears, the committee might be required to drop 2 of the following 6 groups after championship game weekend:

  • 12 -1 SEC champ Alabama
  • 12 -1 Georgia
  • 12 -1 Big 12 champ Oklahoma/Oklahoma State
  • 12 -1 Pac-12 champ Oregon
  • 12 -1 Big Ten champ
  • 13 -0 AAC champ Cincinnati

Who does the committee drop from that list? Considering its history with Group of 5 groups, Cincinnati might be among the unfortunate groups neglected of contention. And, based upon the committee’s treatment of the Sooners up until now, they might likewise be overlooked in the cold. That’s to state absolutely nothing of Oklahoma State, which might likewise challenge as a one-loss Big 12 champ.

Apart from that, college football had a fairly regular weekend: Each of the other top-10 groups won on Saturday, with the only ranked groups losing at the hands of other leading-25 groups. No. 11 Texas A&M fell 29-19 to No. 15 Ole Miss, most likely removing them from the SEC national championship; No. 19 Purdue lost 59-31 to No. 4 Ohio State; and No. 16 N.C. State lost 45-42 to No. 12 Wake Forest.

How will those losses impact the most recent set of AP Top 25 and Coaches Poll rankings?
