Default Missouri vs OU

http://collegefootball.rivals.com/co...asp?CID=885461


Oklahoma hopes to avoid Big 12 upset

Quote:
The Sooners have scored at least 58 points in five consecutive games and at least 60 in four in a row. They won a tiebreaker to represent the South Division over Texas and Texas Tech in the Big 12 Championship Game, where a victory would allow them to play for the national title. And they face Missouri, which has lost to two South Division opponents, fell to rival Kansas in the regular-season finale and is a decided underdog against the Sooners.

"There are good offenses in this league," Missouri coach Gary Pinkel said. "But [the Sooners] are playing as good of football as anybody in the nation."

That's why Oklahoma should be concerned.

The championship game is the iceberg that often has sunk the hopes of Big 12 teams that appeared to be cruising to the national title game.

Exhibit A: In the inaugural Big 12 Championship Game, in 1996, No. 3 Nebraska was upset 37-27 by unranked Texas.

Exhibit B: Two years later, No. 2 Kansas State was upset 36-33 in double overtime by No. 10 Texas A&M.

Exhibit C: In 2001, No. 3 Texas was upset 39-37 by Colorado, which it had beaten soundly earlier in the season.

Exhibit D: In 2003, No. 1 Oklahoma was blown out 35-7 by Kansas State. The Sooners still went to the national title game, but an air of invincibility had been removed and OU fell to LSU 21-14.

Oklahoma has a similar air of invincibility. Since losing 45-35 to Texas on Oct. 11, the Sooners have been on a roll in which they've trampled opponents by an average of 28.8 points. The Sooners average 53.3 points to lead the nation in scoring offense and 556.7 yards to rank third in total offense.

Quarterback Sam Bradford has passed for 4,080 yards and leads the nation with 46 touchdown passes. Running back DeMarco Murray has exceeded 1,000 rushing yards, and backup Chris Brown is closing in on that mark. Tight end Jermaine Gresham is the nation's best at his position. Three wide receivers have more than 30 receptions and 500 yards. The offensive line might be the best in the country.

That all adds up to what must be the best offensive unit in the 10-year tenure of OU coach Bob Stoops.

I just want them to beat Oklahoma for the sake of Texas. The football gods should see that this is done to atone for the crappy BCS system.

BCS be damned. Mizzou be damned. I want them to be blown out. I want Daniel to throw 4 interceptions and Maclin to stay healthy and declare for the draft.

In case you don't know, I do have a pretty strong bias against Missouri.

would love to see a repeat of that Kansas State game in '03. i remember the hype on OU that year being that they were the greatest team ever, and the Big XII championship game was just a small step to the title. best 2-loss team ever!

Default Re: Missouri vs OU

Yeah screw OU, I can't believe their going to back their way into the championship. Having said that, I don't think Mizzou has a shot in hell at beating them...their defense is putrid.

All I'm realistically hoping for now is that Texas can blow out the team they face in their bowl and somehow be awarded a split championship.......god this "BCS" sucks. You know what BCS stands for right?

Bull Crap System.

(hmm...so far my plan is working.)

I can't stand Mizzou. That was a fluke damn play.

(in the TT and Baylor game, I trashed Baylor.....they had a double digit lead and then I started talking good about them at halftime).
