    Could the National Championship Game be between Texas and Oklahoma?

    If both Texas and Oklahoma win the remainder of their games, Penn State stumbles and loses to Michigan State, while Alabama loses their conference championship game wouldn't the National Championship game be a Big 12 showdown?

    Re: Could the National Championship Game be between Texas and Oklahoma?

    I was thinking about this a couple weeks ago. I think it is possible. And cybsball, if OSU beats OU, then couldn't it be OSU vs. Texas in the final? It would be tough though.

    The way OSU has been beating up on people, I could see it...

    Oklahoma finishes with Nebraska, A&M, Tech and Bedlam

    OSU finishes Iowa State, Tech, Colorado, and Bedlam.

    I think the only way OSU could make the jump would be to beat Tech convincingly and have Tech play OKlahoma tight. Then of course, OSU would have to work Oklahoma pretty good...

    Re: Could the National Championship Game be between Texas and Oklahoma?

    Or if Tech wins out, perhaps the final could be Tech versus a one loss team from the Big 12 South Division?

    Re: Could the National Championship Game be between Texas and Oklahoma?

    I don't see Penn State losing, and even though the Televen sucks, I think it would be an injustice to have a 1-loss team get in over PSU. Remember a couple years ago when so many people thought the championship should be a rematch of OSU/Michigan, and Florida had no business being in that game?

    Then there's bama, who is maybe slightly more likely to get a loss than PSU and I would like to see in the championship game even less than PSU. Gee, remember awhile back when we played (and should've beaten) bama in the Independence Bowl? We've certainly gone different directions since then...

    Re: Could the National Championship Game be between Texas and Oklahoma?

    I worried that 1 team out of the south is not going to come out undefeated or if they do they play Mizzu in the Big12 championship and gets beat. Then we end up not getting anybody in the National championship game.

    Who is we? The Big 12? Give me a break.

    I have never understood why people are so focused on how the Big 12 does, especially the South. Does it help arguments with Suckeye fans later in the year when the conference we happen to belong to has a team in a big bowl game?

    Each team in the Big 12 gets $500,000 if two teams make the BCS. I heard it from Pollard.

    Doesn't the National Championship game have the biggest $ pay day? And won't some of the money find its way to Iowa State?

    So if every team in the Big 12 gets the money, where does that give ISU any advantage?
