No. 12 Oklahoma hopes to have reason to pull for Texas; Sooners have to beat TCU first

There is a clear-cut scenario that will guarantee Oklahoma getting into a BCS game.

That would include the Sooners being in the unusual position of pulling for Texas.

But 12th-ranked Oklahoma (9-2) has to first win its regular-season finale Saturday, a pre-noon kickoff at TCU.

The Sooners are assured at least a share of the Big 12 title with a win over the Horned Frogs (7-4), the two-time BCS buster in its inaugural Big 12 season.

If the Sooners win their game, they should be back in Norman in time to watch Saturday night's game between No. 7 Kansas State and the 23rd-ranked Longhorns.

Wins by Oklahoma and Texas would make the Sooners outright Big 12 champs and send them to their ninth BCS game under coach Bob Stoops.
