Big 12 Championship Game: Will the reincarnated game ruin OU's playoff hopes?

02 December, 2017, 09:29 | Author: Heidi Alvarez
  • TCU coach Gary Patterson left and first-year Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley will meet on the field for the second time this season when the Horned Frogs and Sooners meet in the Big 12 title game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington on Saturday

This could happen under the previous two-division conference structure - and it did a couple of times involving Oklahoma - but because of the unbalanced schedule that was played at that time, a same-season rematch for the conference championship was not a certainty.

The Big 12 awards announced Thursday were based on the votes of the league's 10 coaches, who couldn't pick their own players.

Oklahoma jumped out to a 38-14 lead on November 11 after Mayfield threw two TDs in the final 5 1/2 minutes of the first half. "No, I'm not saying that was the reason", Patterson said Tuesday, four days before their Top 10 rematch in the Big 12 championship game.

The Associated Press All-Big 12 teams and specialty awards, selected by writers and broadcasters who cover the league, will be announced December 8.

"Probably the best [thing] for the Big 12 is Oklahoma to win", he said. The Big 12 title game at 11:30 a.m. from AT&T Stadium in Arlington will be a strong opening act, one that could create further chaos nationally should the Sooners fall.

The Sooners (11-1, 8-1, No. 3 CFP) would nearly certainly be a lock for one of the four playoff spots even without another win. OU has thrived in this do-or-die situation the past two seasons. Three Sooners have more than 500 yards total. Only this time, Mizzou was the higher-ranked team, sitting at No. 1 in the nation. After catching just two passes for 15 yards in the first half of the year, he's grabbed 14 for 268 yards and 5 TDs. That couldn't have been a bigger incentive for the ninth-ranked Sooners. Mayfield was nearly ideal by completing 14 of 17 for 281 yards and 3 TDs.

Patterson's group relishes the chance to avenge a 38-20 loss in Norman, Oklahoma, just three weeks ago and win a championship, even with no realistic chance of getting in the playoff if they win. 6 Oklahoma State, before following in Oklahoma's footsteps with an upset loss to Iowa State. He had only 22 carries for 85 yards and a couple of touchdowns in the first five games (he didn't play against Baylor).

As the Frogs jogged across the field, Mayfield pegged Horned Frog safety Niko Small in the head. "In college football, you don't get really an opportunity to play someone again once you lose a game". Neither team can afford to get a slew of stupid penalties.

Responding to questions last week after a video surfaced showing Mayfield hitting a TCU player with a pass during warmups on November 11, Riley said TCU ran right through the middle of Oklahoma warmups and added, "When you do that, things like that can happen". The Sooners are going to have to go out and prove it on the field all by themselves on Saturday. "He's a good football player, and he also has a lot of good players around him".
