TCU and Oklahoma State turned out to be evenly matched in the end, so their rankings could just flip.

The Horned Frogs could rise even further if USC and Clemson can’t take care of their business in tough matchups on Saturday night. Ole Miss’s inability to put away Auburn should give TCU room to jump them.

The Cowboys could fall a few more spots but their loss is better than Oregon’s, so keeping them in front of the inactive Ducks feels right.
