Following Saturday's 34-17 loss to No. 6 Georgia, Kentucky has dropped two spots to No. 11 in the College Football Playoff Rankings.

Georgia was next at five, followed by Oklahoma.

Oklahoma should be able to take care of business at home the next two weekends against in-state rival Oklahoma State and last-place Kansas, which leaves the showdown at West Virginia (7-1, 5-1) the day after Thanksgiving as the defining game of the Sooners' season.

If Wisconsin wins, how will the playoff committee value a 6-3 Wisconsin team with a win over ranked Penn State? Remember Michigan still plays Ohio State in the last regular-season game. I guess there are a few two-loss teams that could wind back up in the conversation if a bunch of these teams lost down the stretch, but right now, I'd say that your field of four is going to come from these 10 teams.

No. 1 Alabama would face No. 4 MI in the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic, because the committee won't put the No. 1 seed at any geographic disadvantage, and while marginal, Arlington, Texas, is slightly closer to Tuscaloosa than Miami, where No. 2 Clemson would face No. 3 Notre Dame in the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Capital One Orange Bowl.

With four weeks left in the season, nine of the top 10 teams are serious contenders. In fact, we put the Irish in our poll at No. 7 behind Georgia, Oklahoma and West Virginia. Georgia is the second highest-ranked one-loss team after MI. The Fighting Irish are just ahead of MI based on a head-to-head matchup, won by Notre Dame 24-17.

Important to the Hawks is where the other Big Ten teams fell within the rankings. The Cougars and Washington (25th) are the only two Pac-12 teams in the CFP rankings. The last time the Pac-12 had only two ranked teams was October 16, 2016. The Bulldogs would play No. 6 Oklahoma, which is the projected Big 12 champion in this ranking. Boston College 18. Michigan State 19.

#16 Mississippi State plays #1 Alabama this weekend.
