Don't Count Your Big 12 Chickens Before They Hatch

Everyone is ready to anoint Oklahoma as the Big 12 Champ, but don’t forget about Oklahoma State!

While Oklahoma totally dominated Texas Tech last week, Oklahoma State was resting up and preparing to face their rival Oklahoma this week in Stillwater.

OSU is 9-2, with their only losses to Texas and Texas Tech. The last time OSU beat OU, the Sooners were ranked No. 3 in 2002, and OSU pulled a 38-28 win in Stillwater.

In 2001, OU was ranked No. 4 and OSU beat them 16-13 in Norman.

If Oklahoma loses to OSU this year, Texas Tech would go to the Big 12 Title game (as long as they beat Baylor) and with a win over Missouri there, Tech could be right back in the BCS Title hunt.
