Line: Oklahoma State (-14)
The Oklahoma State Cowboys are coming off of a monster win, yet the College Football Playoff committee still doesn’t seem to be that impressed. The Cowboys knocked off the TCU Horned Frogs last week, who were undefeated up until that point, yet the Cowboys are still only ranked No. 8.
They are undefeated, but three one-loss teams are ranked ahead of them in the rankings.
Regardless, Oklahoma State will take on the Iowa State Cyclones in Week 11, which is a game that the Cowboys should handle with ease.
With just three games left for the Cyclones, they are in serious trouble when it comes to making a bowl. After all, they would have to knock off the Cowboys, and both opponents after that, to become bowl eligible.
This is Oklahoma State’s last “easy” game of the year. After this, it takes on the Baylor Bears and Oklahoma Sooners. If the Cowboys somehow manage to survive their last three games and are undefeated to close out the regular season, the CFP committee better let them in. If not, we might as well bring the BCS back.
There are likely going to be some very angry Oklahoma State fans after the latest CFP rankings, and the uproar very well could carry over to the football field. Translation: Don’t be surprised when the Cowboys take out their latest ranking on the Cyclones and the scoreboard.
PREDICTION: Cowboys 52, Cyclones 17
