College football rankings, Week 9: Texas punished for Oklahoma State upset

Despite a Week 1 loss against Maryland, Texas had a chance to make the College Football Playoff due to a six-game winning streak that included a victory over Oklahoma. But the Longhorns blew that opportunity with a 38-35 defeat to Oklahoma State on Saturday that effectively ended their Playoff hopes.

Texas was the only top-10 team to fall to an unranked program this weekend, and the latest rankings offered few meaningful changes outside of the Longhorns’ drop from No. 6 to No. 15.

Georgia crushed Florida, 36-17, pushing the Bulldogs up one spot to No. 6 and dropping the Gators from No. 9 to No. 13.

Three of the Pac-12’s five ranked teams lost, as then-No. 15 Washington fell to Cal, then-No. 19 Oregon was blown out by Arizona and then-No. 24 Stanford went down against Washington State. Due to those results, Washington, Oregon and Stanford dropped out of the top 25.
