    win out and WVU stumbles once vs their tough remaining schedule and we’re in, based on my Math 150 skills

    I’m all for optimism and I really hope we end up in the Big 12 Championship but I’m still not convinced this team can win out. At Texas is going to be tough, even if they did just get beat by Oklahoma State

    That should be correct.

    They never said it would be easy, but it is a path.

    So if West Virginia falls to Texas next weekend, we control our destiny.

    Are there likely scenarios without winning at Texas. Is it just as easy as needing them to lose to someone else, or does us losing to them being too many other teams back in the mix.

    Don't fall asleep the next two weeks and you've got two beatable teams standing between ISU and a big 12 championship game.

    Really back to back seasons where the big 12 championship has been in play over the last 1/3 of the season. Seemed like a pipe dream when Campbell got here.

    If we lose to Texas, then they will have to lose 2 other games for us to finish ahead of them. This is all assuming OU finishes first of course.

    Odds are against it, but it’s just as possible as going losing two or three more times imo.

    I just hope we start to see more complete games. The talent is there imo.

    Long story short, our most likely path to the big 12 title game is finding a way to win in Texas. If we lose there, it's gonna be tough getting to the title.

    WV has a tougher stretch than us to end the season

    @ Texas
    TCU
    @ Oklahoma State
    Oklahoma

    Would predict OU beats them, and Texas and OSU on the road are by no means easy. Could easily lose 2-3

    They would have to lose 3 more. They would own the head to head and having beaten the top team.

    THIS! We're looking at the 2nd year in a row with ISU in Novemb er looking at B12 CCG possibilities.

    Take care of business vs KU and Baylor and ISU has a mammoth game vs Texas.
    Side note, I'm actually glad KU beat TCU. That will get everyone's attention for next weekends game.

    That TCU game really hurts. Going to really hate it if we would have been in if we weren’t the only Big 12 team to lose to the frogs. There’s definitely a chance TCU goes 1-8 in Big 12.

    I just hope the team is focusing on one game at a time. Beat KU. They’re coming off a rare conference win.

    This. At the time is didnt seem like such a bad loss, but they are falling apart. I really want that game back. Have even an average offense and we take that one

    We "control our own destiny" if WVU can drop one more, which they will.

    Not necessarily. The tie breakers could get complicated if OU loses to either TT or OSU.
