Week 11 in the college football season didn’t disappoint. Oklahoma was upset by Baylor, Florida struggled with Samford, and Texas lost to Kansas. As we inch closer and closer to conference championships and playoff seasons, teams are continuing to put themselves in position and some are getting themselves out of position. Here’s what we learned in week 11.
Oklahoma Isn’t Playoff Worthy
Going into the weekend, Baylor vs. Oklahoma was expected to be a shootout. It ended up being the opposite. Baylor’s defense stunned the world and shut Oklahoma’s offense down and propelled the Bears to a 27-14 victory. Baylor's run game went ballistic, having two 100 yard rushers. Abram Smith rushed for 148 yards off 20 carries and quaterback Gerry Bohanon went for 107 yards off nine carries and finished with two touchdowns. Oklahoma quarterback Caleb Williams was flustered from the beginning and never got the offense started. Oklahoma didn’t just lose, they were dominated. Despite entering the matchup ranked squarely within the top ten, Oklahoma’s playoff chances are all but gone after the loss. They’ll likely be ranked outside the top 10 and have their chances wiped away. Maybe next year.
