Where did the Sooners and Cowboys end up in the college football playoff rankings this week?

That's the question football fans in Oklahoma wanted to know. Well, wait no more.

In the latest playoff rankings, Oklahoma is No. 8 and Oklahoma State is No. 10. The top 4 teams did not change; Alabama, Ohio State, Michigan and Clemson held their top spots.

OU was No. 9 while OSU was No. 11 in the Week 12 rankings.

Last week's No. 5, Louisville, was the only top 10 team to lose this weekend.

Oklahoma and Oklahoma State both come into Week 13 with 9-2 records. One is guaranteed 10 wins as they'll play a de facto Big 12 title game in Norman on Dec. 3 to end their regular season.

OU is coming off an impressive road win over No. 14 West Virginia, and the Sooners look strong as the season gets down into the final weeks. They moved up because of Louisville's loss to Houston, one of the opponents to beat the Sooners. The Cougars made their way back into the CFP rankings at No. 20.

OSU demolished TCU on the road Saturday, 31-6. The win was the Pokes' seventh consecutive since their conference opening defeat at Baylor. The Cowboys' controversial loss to Central Michigan has many wondering whether the playoff committee sees OSU as a 10-win team or a 9-win team.

The new rankings were released Tuesday evening.
