1. Alabama
2. Texas
3. Oklahoma
4. Florida
5. USC
6. Utah

Texas is ahead of OU by .0075 so OU will make the jump next week if they take care of business.

At this point I think we will see OU vs. Florida in the NC.

Bama vs. Ohio St in the Sugar Bowl.

Texas vs. USC in the Fiesta Bowl.

Penn St vs. Oregon St in the Rose Bowl.

Utah vs. Cincinnati in the Orange Bowl.

Utah is undefeated and they sure as hell haven't lost by 40+ on prime time national TV.

I told y'all for a whole week that if Tech lost they were going to fall like a rock. They did.

As Lee Corso would say:

In the last couple of games, OU and Florida have just been padding stats and running up the score.

They are playing better than anyone else right now and that's what matters to human voters.

Texas isn't playing any worse than them and Texas beat one of them by 10 points. Next.

Except that Utah has a history of being successful in BCS games. Hawaii doesn't.

That is working for them.

In the end, it doesn't matter where Tech is ranked unless they are in front of either OU or UT.

No matter if they are #5 or #25 they are still headed to the Cotton Bowl.

Look, I am a HUGE Texas fan. I have watched every single game since I was just a little kid.

But use your eyes. We should have beat Tech. We didn't.

They should have beat Tech. They did more than that. They embarrassed them.

OU is on fire and I wouldn't want to give them a rematch right now cuz I don't think we could win.

OU loses to OK state and Tech beats Baylor, Tech goes to the Big 12 title game right? Texas would then need Tech to lose to Mizzou to have any chance of the BCS championship game. Its not looking good for the Horns. Its a flawed system with a fictional national championship.

The argument here is between 2 teams, Texas and OU. OU should have beaten Texas but they didn't. They got their asses handed to them by 10 points. End of conversation.

Not necessarily.

Texas is far enough ahead that they could get into the NC game even if Tech wins the conference.

No. It's between three teams. They all have the same record.

I wish I could say that beating OU on a neutral field was enough. But it's not. The ENTIRE body of work has to count, not just the game we want to count. Unless you propose that Ole Miss should be ranked higher than Florida cuz they won the head to head...

Unless Tech loses to Baylor then OU is going to the Big XII champ game.

If OU loses to OSU, Tech goes to the Big XII Champ game vs Mizzou due to the tie breaker. A win over Mizzou should push Tech over Texas in the BCS, and into the National Championship game against the SEC winner. Only way UT gets in is with OU(then #2) losing to OSU, and Tech losing to Mizzou or OU beaitng OSU and then losing to Mizzou.

Hell yes I do.

We played our worst two quarters of the entire season in that first half.

We are better than them and we squandered it. We have to live with the consequences.

No, when talking about the BCS rankings it's between 2 teams. Tech isn't even the conversation now since they are #7. The Big XII championship obviously means little.
