With a win over TCU, Oklahoma is now rooting for Texas

Or, rooting for Kansas State to lose. However the Sooners want to look at it.

But the outcome is the same. Oklahoma needs the Longhorns to beat the Wildcats later tonight to win the Big 12 conference outright and earn a berth to the BCS. The No. 12 Sooners were able to fend off a feisty TCU team and come away with a 24-17 win on the road in Forth Worth. It’s the eighth¬†Big 12 title for OU, but it could be the first the Sooners have to share.

All things were fairly even between the Sooners and the Horned Frogs, but officials called a 32-yard field goal attempt by TCU’s Jaden Oberkrom‘s wide left in the fourth quarter even though the ball looked like it slipped just inside the upright as it went over the crossbar. But, the play was non-reviewable. and Oklahoma held on to a 10-point lead. Then again,¬†Oklahoma’s Michael Hunnicutt missed a 42-yard field goal shortly thereafter that would have iced the game.

Oklahoma should be going to a BCS bowl regardless of whether K-State wins tonight or not, but for the sake of winning the Big 12 outright and locking down that berth, the Sooners should be considering themselves Longhorns today.

Or, not.

    I think it’s hilarious that the Big 12 considers itself greater than the SEC but they can’t even get enough teams to get a championship game again, even conference USA has a championship game.

    Jessejames. How full of it can one person be! Since you are enjoying our cast-off. And if you think the Big12 is so irrelevant, why is their an agreement for us to play a game between the champions of each league!

    I think Oklahoma v Georgia could be a great game if it is selected for Cotton Bowl. Oklahoma really disappointed many by losing AT HOME to ND. What is it with you guys? The Sooners were odds on favorites for that one. It’s not like the Irish were an offensive juggernaut.

    @gamecocker…….and LSU was an offensive juggernaut when they beat S.Carolina? Hell, ‘Bama lost at home to A&M when they were “odds on” favorites. It happens sometimes. It’s not like they had to block a punt in the last minute to beat a Div. II team.

    @gorilladunk

    That DII team you refernce, Wofford College, is and has been a solid football program in their league. They were 8-2 coming into the WB (Williams Brice Stadium) and played the Gamecocks tough. If you think ND’s Defense was formidable against Oklahoma, you really don’t want any part of South Carolina’s Defense; or LSU’s; or Georgia’s; or Bama’s; or Florida’s; etc. And know SC had the game in hand beginning the 4th Qtr. Now hush-up and go away.
