The Oklahoma Sooners fell victim to perhaps the biggest upset of the college football season this weekend when they lost at home to the Texas Tech Red Raiders. OU's defense was absolutely shredded by Texas Tech quarterback Seth Doege.
Most would say that this entire weekend was a huge loss for the Sooners, but they'd be wrong.
One of the most important games of the season is coming down the road, and that game is Oklahoma vs. Oklahoma State in Stillwater. OU looks to be out of the national title picture, but if a few key teams lose, they could be right back in with a win over an undefeated Cowboys team.
While the prospect of crushing an in-state rival possibly leading to a BCS berth is music to a Sooners fan's ears, the fact that they are no longer the best team in Oklahoma is a huge blow to their collective ego.
For the first time in forever, the "Sooner State" isn't ruled by the Sooners, but by the Cowboys. That might be the best news of the week for the Cowboys.
They're better than the Sooners for now, and any Oklahoma State fan has to be happy with that.
