I know it’s crazy, but it’s true!The Bearcats are undefeated and will likely slide into that 4 spot this week due to Oregon getting absolutely manhandled by Utah. But there is still a scenario where we may not see Cincinnati in the playoffs.
These guys. The Cowboys of Oklahoma State. They clinched a spot in the BIG 12 Championship and have a real shot at climbing the rankings these next two weeks.
First they play Oklahoma this upcoming week. The Sooners are currently ranked 12 in the College Football Playoff Rankings. A win there gives the Cowboys a big win there.
If Oklahoma State wins and Baylor can hold on next week, those two would face off in the BIG 12 Championship, which should be another highly ranked battle.
A win over Baylor would then make everything really juicy. A one loss BIG 12 Champion, that is hard to leave out. Their only loss too would be on the road against a solid Iowa State team.
Mike Gundy is also a beast, so it may be hard to leave him out.
To be honest, I don’t think the Cowboys win the next two, but if they do, Cincy may be in some trouble…
