College Football Rankings, Week 15 Coaches Poll: Alabama Loses Ground To Oklahoma State

The SEC rematch in the BCS National Championship Game moved a step closer now that the Coaches Poll for Week 15 is out and the Alabama Crimson Tide are still No. 2 while the Oklahoma St. Cowboys are a close No. 3.

That said, Alabama and Oklahoma State were separated by 166 points. This week, they're separated by only 32.

The LSU Tigers solidified their positioning with a blowout win and Oklahoma State closed the gap with a blowout win over the Oklahoma Sooners. However, voters seemed hesitant to drop Alabama from the No. 2 spot despite their not playing for a conference championship.

Pac-12 schools Stanford and Oregon round out the Top Five.
