Sooners Surprise Bears 44-34, Control Own Destiny in Big 12

Posted on

Oklahoma stepped into the “Palace on the Brazos” Saturday night and walked away with a big 44-34 win, propelling the Sooners into the thick of the Big 12 Championship and the National Championship discussion. The Big 12 owes Oregon a huge debt of gratitude after beating Stanford 38-36, insuring the Pac 12 Champ will have at least two losses. Additionally, the Stanford loss took some luster off of the upcoming Cardinal game with Notre Dame. The Irish also suffered another hit on their resume with Temple’s loss at South Florida. Notre Dame’s #4 position in the CFP rankings doesn’t look quite as invincible as it did last week. There is still a lot of football yet to be played, especially in the Big 12 and the Big 10. Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Baylor, TCU, Ohio State, Michigan State, and Iowa could all explode or implode depending on the results of the next 3 weeks.
