College Football Rankings: Oklahoma State Falls Two Spots To No. 4

The National Football Post has already posted its Top 25 for Week 12 of the college football season and they’re the first to show just how far Oklahoma State will fall after this weekend’s loss to Iowa State in double overtime. The good news is that the Cowboys will not fall far at all.

The Cyclones were definitely not supposed to win against Brandon Weeden and company, but it’s clear that the ranks of the college football voter is going to still respect the tremendous success that OSU has enjoyed so far. To fall only to No. 4 means that they’re still on the radar for a major BCS bowl and possibly the national championship depending on what else happens in the next two weeks.
