    Baylor has no impact on our results the rest of the season. I'm saying I thought there would be less disparity in our chances of going 9-3 vs 8-4. It basically boils down to the TX game if everything else goes chalk.

    I misunderstood your post - thought you meant chances for getting into the champ game at those records. Makes sense after reading it again.

    I’m really not a fan of that excuse. Why did our offense wake up in the 4th quarter when the heat was at it’s worst and we had spent the previous 2 and a half hours in that heat? It just didn’t seem like the team was ready to play in their first true road game of the season.

    With that said, I just don’t see Texas winning in Waco, but at the same time, I don’t see the Longhorns winning in Ames either. Pretty much the only hope is at TCU and I just don’t see that.

    I'm not sure this is accurate. Baylor was in the shade for most of the game while Iowa State was in the sun. Around the start of the 4th the whole field was shaded.

    I was there and when the shadow from the press box started covering the field in the 3rd quarter and completely in the 4th, the temp on the field dropped a lot.

    This.

    The tent thing was garbage but scheme and fundamentals did ISU in that day.

    You just rocked my assumptions. I’ve been viewing this entire season through the lens that assumes OU is truly a Top 5 team. What if they’re actually a pretender and they just haven’t played anyone yet?
    They still have BU and ISU. If we win out, there’s an excellent chance that we DO get a rematch with Baylor in the CCG.

    What happens in a Texas/Baylor/ISU tie for second?

    Losses
    Baylor- Texas and OU
    ISU- OU and Baylor
    Texas - OU and ISU

    I was at the game. When we scored 3 unanswered TD’s, it coincided exactly with the bench getting shade for the first time in entire game at the start of the 4th quarter. That heat was brutal. Now, no one can definitively say this was truly because the temperature dropped from 140 degrees to the low 90’s. However, if you ask me my opinion of the impact of that, you would be a fool to not to believe it did not contribute to the comeback. We just ran out of gas due to the cumulative effect of the heat for the first 3 quarters. We had shade the entire 4th quarter and it showed. Line these 2 teams up again in Waco and I think we win by 2 TD’s.

    Gotta beat OSU this weekend first. Feels a bit like a trap game with the bye week afterwards and then OU.

    Need Baylor to lose to Texas by more than we beat Texas to eliminate them from the 3 way tie (scoring margin amongst games between the 3 teams). It would then leave us and Texas, which we would win via head to head matchup.

    After needing a last second field goal to beat KU I can't see Texas winning out. All the computer rankings have Baylor and ISU around 15-20th nationally with Texas further back.

    I know that have one in their pocket but I have a really tough time thinking OU beats tx, bu AND us.

    A trap game before a bye? That's a new one.

    What?

    If we beat Texas by 60 points you're saying Baylor needs to lose to Texas by 61 points? If that's the case we'd want to only beat Texas by 1 point.
