OSU game yesterday was one of those clear trap games. Remember 2011?
The key for OSU is that they host Baylor and Oklahoma the next 2 games. I think if they win them both, it's clear they are in. Will they? After what OU has done lately, then I think definitely yes.
OU still has to play TCU, in Norman. If Boykin is out, that's one thing. If not, then it should be another good game for either's resume.
The fact that Baylor's toughest opponent prior to last night was Texas Tech, W Va and Kan St didn't get them ready to play against a team like OU. The Sooners are much improved over the team Texas beat. Bribes may or may not learn about playing patsies in OOC. But he's pretty headstrong and it may cost him again, even if he beats OSU, TCU and Texas
OSU gave up some early stuff and got down, but again rallied from a 17 point deficit. They pretty much controlled the second half. Yardage by 86, first downs by 9, but penalties hurt them early and they weren't ready to play a fired up team in Ames. That changed and they got it together. No more of a let down than other teams at the front have had this year, and rallied from. They've beaten TCU and Boykin already, and have 2 more big matchups to go. If they win those, they'll be in. If they don't, then it'll be a determination amongst all the 1 win teams that will be left....
Ohio St still has to get through Michigan St and Michigan, and if they do, then Iowa. That's still a tough road.
PAC12 is out of it. 2 loss team will not get in the playoffs if there are undefeated teams. Bama-Florida winner will likely be in, unless one of them loses before the title game, and that's definitely possible. Clemson will be in barring some sort of stumble, like against UNC. Last spot will go to either Notre Dame, if they win out.
