Winners and losers from Week 15 in college football led by Oklahoma, LSU and Georgia – USA TODAY

Utah’s loss to Oregon on Friday night opened a path for the Big 12 champion to break into the College Football Playoff. Oklahoma took advantage of the opportunity, outlasting Baylor in overtime for its second narrow defeat of the Bears this season.

Chaos would likley have come to the playoff race if Georgia had pulled off an upset of LSU to win the SEC championship. But the Tigers held serve, making one final case for sitting atop the final playoff rankings when it is released on Sunday afternoon, while sending Georgia into the soft landing of a New Year’s Six bowl.

With games to decide the ACC and Big Ten still to come on Saturday night, the playoff field is beginning to take shape. LSU is in. Oklahoma is very likely in should Ohio State fend off Wisconsin for the second time this season to remain unbeaten. Clemson is locked into another playoff berth with a win against Virginia.

Here are the winners and losers from a weekend of conference championships:
