So, OU to #2? The other two games in the three-way merry-go-round were close. This was an asskicking. Plus OU have the better out-of-conference wins. I imagine Texas' argument will be that OU's loss came on a neutral field, whilst UT lost on the road.
"I can't say that. I'd have to say having Ryan Leaf quarterback us to a 1-15 record is probably the biggest challenge."

Rodney Harrison, on whether losing Tom Brady to injury was the greatest challenge he has faced in football.

Texas beat OU on a neutral field. I don't understand how this is a question. I know that the game was closer than the score and OU is probably the better team, but they lost on a neutral field to Texas. Why isn't Texas ahead of them no matter what?

Agreed. I hate that voters can only seem to be able to focus on the last 2 weeks especially the closer the end of the season gets. (Thats why I cant understand why fans want a playoff based on those same rankings.) CFN did a nice take on this in their "5 hot topics" article that agrees also. Frankly, I dont understand why somehow the non-conference wins matter more than the conference wins.

FACTS
-Texas has played all of the other top5 Big12 teams, all in a row, and came within a dropped interception of coming out of it unscathed.
-By comparison, OU, up to this point has only played 2 of the other 4 top5 Big12 teams. Won big at home against TT, and lost on neutral field to Texas. They wont play OSU til next week, and wont play Mizzou unless they go to the title game.
-Texas beat OU.

OPINIONS
-I like the wins over Mizzou and OSU more than the wins over TCU and Cincy, but admittedly its close.
-OU has been a beast at home, and very good on the road.
-Texas has been equally good no matter where they've played.
