The Oklahoma State Cowboys keep climbing in the College Football Playoff after the committee announced its latest ranking on Tuesday.

The Cowboys (10-1, 7-1 Big 12) moved up two spots to No. 7 in the latest ranking, and the Oklahoma Sooners are back in the top 10 after rebounding over the weekend with a win over Iowa State. Georgia continues to hold the No. 1 spot in the College Football Playoff ranking, and Ohio State, Alabama and Cincinnati round out the top four.

Michigan, which plays Ohio State this weekend, and Notre Dame are the first two teams out at No. 5 and No. 6, respectively.

The last time Oklahoma State took the field, the Cowboys shut out the Texas Tech Red Raiders in Lubbock to continue their stretch of defensive dominance. In their last four games, the Cowboys have allowed a total of 23 points, with 17 coming against TCU earlier this month.

Oklahoma State’s road win Saturday clinched their spot in the Big 12 Championship Game.

The No. 10 Sooners bounced back from the loss against Baylor with a 28-21 victory over the Cyclones. The win improved OU’s record to 10-1 overall and 7-1 in Big 12 play.

The Cowboys and Sooners square off in Bedlam this weekend to close the regular season. The game kicks off at 6:30 p.m. Saturday in Stillwater.
