    If we finish at 6-6, we really want Nebraska to knock off KU today and KSU next week. If K-State and KU don't bet eligible it will help our chances a ton. Also we want the loser of Oklahoma and TA&M to lose out (might be wishful thinking on that one).

    Root for A&M tonight, they still have Baylor and Texas. OU has Texas Tech and Okie State. OU could very well lose out.

    OU is too good to lose out. There's a better chance of A&M losing to Baylor. Root for OU.

    Normally I would agree, but this OU team is not that great.

    Yeah I'd agree. Baylor did knock off Missouri... A&M lost to Colorado and has been inconsistent...just don't see Oklahoma losing out like that.

    I don't care what we get. I can't cheer for Nebraska.

    Yes, I am. There might be a 10% chance of OU losing out. People are making way too much of their record. They are still a team with one of the best defenses in the country and an offense with the potential to be pretty decent. They're outgaining conference opponents right now by 126.2 yards per game which is easily the best margin in the league. Two of their losses are by one point (BYU and Miami), another is by three points (Texas, possibly the best team in the country), and the other is by seven to Nebraska in a game the Sooners statistically dominated but lost due to Nebraska creating turnovers.

    Texas A&M is an up and down team. If they lose tonight, they probably need to beat Baylor to go to a bowl unless they can shock Texas. I give Baylor about a 35% chance of winning.
