Week 14 didn't exactly provide the drama of previous November weekends, but it did include a shake up in the Top 5 that has reset the conference race in the Big 12. Oklahoma State dominated Baylor in Stillwater, jumping up to No. 7 after the 49-17 win. The Bears fell to No. 9, and now need help in order to win the league's automatic BCS bid. 

Oregon also lost its inside track to the Rose Bowl after a 42-16 loss at Arizona, dropping to No. 12 in the polls. No. 8 Stanford clinched a spot in the Pac-12 title game after a win against Cal, while No. 13 Arizona State held off UCLA and will face the Cardinal for a bid to the Rose Bowl.

No. 1 Alabama, No. 2 Florida State and No. 3 Ohio State all cruised to victory, and No. 5 Missouri picked up a key win at Ole Miss to stay in front of the SEC East.
