The Oklahoman's final state college football power poll for the 2013 season:

1. Langston (6-4): The monetary benefits from playing four NCAA Division I-AA teams will help the athletic department in the long run. But those four losses, all on the road, ultimately cost the Lions a spot in the NAIA playoffs. Too bad strength of schedule did not have a bearing whether Langston made the postseason cut. If it did, coach Dwone Sanders' crew would have been a cinch to make the field.

2. Southwestern (6-5): Bulldogs had first winning season since 2007. Replacing quarterback Dustin Stenta and tight end Ryan Corbin will be big challenges for 2014.

3. East Central (5-5): Quarterback Spencer Bond will only get better and help keep the Tigers competitive the next two seasons. He'll need to find a new favorite receiver, however, since Caleb Holley has his eyes set on professional football.

4. Bacone (7-4): This solid football team finished the season with a road loss in Texas to Southwestern Assemblies of God. Wondering how much want-to the Warriors had after losing a Central States Football League championship game to Langston the week before.

5. Panhandle State (4-7): Aggies finished up a week earlier than everyone else. If there was any good to come out of last Saturday — they're a week closer to the start of the 2014 season.

6. Oklahoma Baptist (3-8): Bison lose three seniors. This will be a program to watch over the next few years.
