The Frogs are ranked higher than Baylor and Oklahoma State in Sunday's polls, but will it be the same come Tuesday?And if so, will it even matter?

After beating their arch-rival in a non-rivalry game, TCU is now ranked higher than both Baylor and Oklahoma State; this makes them the 2nd highest ranked team in the Big 12 behind playoff-bound and Oklahoma and sets up a very interesting NY6 Bowl Scenario(s).

The Frogs are pretty much out of the Sugar Bowl, regardless of whether or not Texas can upset Baylor, because of a Big 12 tie-breaker rule--a tiebreaker which would give the Cowboys the Sugar Bowl should the Longhorns pull of the miracle in Waco.

However, whether or not the Frogs finish the season ranked higher than OSU and Baylor remains to be seen, and thus leaves open some interesting possibilities. We'll explore this more when the next CFP poll comes out early in the week. In the meantime, take a gander at the poll and drive yourself crazy with bowl predictions.
