How Oklahoma’s loss affected polls behind Alabama –

The top four of both the AFCA coaches poll and Associated Press poll will be different this week after Oklahoma, ranked No. 4 in each poll last week, lost Saturday to Baylor.

The Sooners moved down to No. 11 in Sunday’s new coaches poll, with Ohio State moving into the No. 4 spot. Alabama remained No. 2 ahead of No. 3 Cincinnati in the coaches poll.

The Associated Press poll, which had Alabama ranked No. 3 behind Cincinnati last week, will be released later Sunday.

The latest College Football Playoff rankings will be released Tuesday at 6 p.m. CT on ESPN. There are unlikely to be significant changes after the top seven teams in last week’s rankings all won, including the top five teams by at least two touchdowns. The committee ranked Oklahoma at No. 8 before its loss.
