Despite a stunning loss at the hands of Iowa State, the Oklahoma State Cowboys fall to just No. 4 in the latest BCS Rankings, while the Sooners fell to No. 9 after falling victim to a last-second touchdown by the Baylor Bears.

The Cowboys' high-scoring offense continues to benefit them in the computer rankings, coming in second in the average with a .950, trailing just LSU, who holds a perfect 1.00 in the computer average. In order to make the BCS Championship game, OSU would need Auburn to upset Alabama and LSU to win out.

Oklahoma fell four spots with the loss, and sits atop the two-loss schools with two weeks left in the regular season. The Sooners also benefited greatly from the computer average, sitting sixth in the computer rankings and could still gain an at-large bid to the BCS.
