    Texas is ranked No. 2 in the latest BCS standings. - NCAA Football - SI.com

    I can't believe OU is still #3 in the BCS after the beating the gave Tech!

    Texas won't gain anything from beating A&M by...seventy.

    OU will sneak past Texas next week, if they both win.... (it's already been arranged)

    If both Texas and OU win this week - I'm betting OU goes because they're playing OSU, Texas is playing A&M.

    Sucks, IMO...because...

    -Texas beat OU
    -I'd rather see Texas in it than OU

    So, it is that argument again? Then, just in case you have been gone for the last 2 months: Texas beat OU, Tech beat Texas and OU beat Tech, so that gives us a 3 way tie currently in the Big 12 South!

    The head-to-head argument can not be used anymore!

    Is that the conference tie breaker?

    No - but the comment was - surprised that Texas was ahead of OU. Both teams with the same record, one team beat the other. Simple.

    Correct.

    Re: All I Have to Say is -- WOW!!

    You know what creates a mess though? OU losing this weekend.

    That puts Tech and Texas at the top of the division with the winner being decided by that head to head matchup. So Tech would go. Essentially leaving Texas at #2 without playing for the conference title...

    "No - but the comment was - surprised that Texas was ahead of OU. Both teams with the same record, one team beat the other. Simple."


    If that is the case, then Tech should be higher ranking than Texas b/c they both have the same record and Tech beat Texas. Simple.

    This argument can not continue b/c all teams have 1 loss and all teams have beat each other - hence the 3 way tie!

    Ooh, just for kicks: what would happen if OU, Texas, and Tech all lost this coming weekend? How would that pan in conference and BCS results?

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    *sigh*

    - Tech was the last of the 3 to lose
    - Tech was murdered
    - OU and Texas are the higher ranked Big 12 teams
    - And again, Texas beat OU

    You seemed perplexed that Texas was atop OU at this point - what other explanation would there be?

    I fully understand and anticipate OU will surpass Texas after next weekend, as much as I don't like it. I'll just hope that OSU beats OU...which is not unfathomable. :)

    ONE HELL OF A MESS!!!

    Probably though, the highest ranking BCS team would play for the Big 12 Championship against Mizzou but the winner would not go to the NC game. The NC game would be between the winner of the SEC and probably USC.
