The top seven remained the same in the latest college football playoff standings announced on Tuesday.

Georgia and Alabama were easy calls for the top two after resounding wins on Saturday, while Oregon, Ohio State, Cincinnati, Michigan and Michigan State also won. He keeps the pressure on the committee to determine order with just four openings in the playoffs.

Voters have maintained the status quo before Week 12 as the teams attempt to part ways on the pitch.

One of the biggest stories in recent weeks has been Oklahoma’s placement in early drafts of these rankings, which was lower than the Associated Press or Coaches Poll.

The committee seemed to get it right as the Sooners suffered their first loss of the year on Saturday, falling to Baylor 27-14. The Bears totaled 296 rushing yards in the upset while forcing two interceptions against Caleb Williams.

“They played better than us,” Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley said after the game.

Oklahoma went from 8th to 13th in the CFP rankings after the loss, while Baylor went from 13th to 11th.

Ohio State also had a tough clash on paper in Week 11 against Purdue, but the Buckeyes felt little resistance on their way to a 59-31 victory. Receiver Garrett Wilson scored four touchdowns, including three in the first half to help build a 45-17 lead.

Georgia also struggled on the road with a 41-17 victory over Tennessee, while Alabama won 59-3 over New Mexico State.

Oregon wasn’t as dominant in a 38-24 win over Washington State, but its full-season resume is still enough to stay No.3 ahead of Ohio State in the last ranking.

The next three spots were also hotly debated, with Cincinnati remaining undefeated after a 45-28 victory over South Florida. Michigan State and Michigan each have one more loss after claiming victories over Maryland and Penn State respectively.

Michigan State currently sits at number 7, although Saturday’s game at Ohio State could create a big change.

Among other notable rankings, Ole Miss rose from 15th to 12th place in the poll, while Wake Forest is now No.10 (up two places). UTSA, one of the three remaining undefeated teams, is No. 22 overall.
