I haven't run every scenario on @mred's web site but I haven't yet found one that puts us in the CG without beating Texas (barring a ton of upsets among other contenders). Am I wrong?

So given that, go Pokes for the potential rematch and to knock out OU.
I think that's correct. If we lose to Texas, we essentially need Texas to lose to Kansas or KSU, regardless of OU/OSU result.

If you are thinking about our chances of getting into the Big 12 championship game this game is essentially meaningless. Play around with mreds calculator and I can’t find a reasonable scenario it matters.

Basically regarding the title game if we beat Texas and we are very likely in. We lose to Texas and we’d have to have a Texas lose to KSU or KU or we are very likely out.

If you are thinking about match ups in the Big12 title game then I’d rather OSU win because I’d rather play them.

Looks like it’s a moot point as I type this though

If this score continues look for OU to make a massive jump up in rankings and maybe drag us up with them because of our win over them and the blowout result and 6-1 record.

Aren't there three way ties with OU/Texas where we win tie breaker to get in the game?

That seems like a pretty likely outcome actually.

We are we out if we lose to Texas and ISU, Texas and OU are all 7-2?

Seems we'd have a decent shot with tie break criteria and if we lose to Texas it's looking like that three way tie is very likely.

Here’s the way I look at it.

If:

A. OU wins tonight,

and

B. We win our next three games,

Then we finish alone stop the conference standings, and win the CCG. It’s that simple. Plus the side benefit of beating OU twice in the same season.

I’ll have my cake and eat it too, please.
