BCS analyst Brad Edwards says it's almost official: Oklahoma has won the Big 12 South.
"Based on Oklahoma's superior position relative to Oklahoma State and Texas A&M in today's coaches' poll, Harris poll and Sagarin computer, I can very comfortably project the Sooners as the winner of the Big 12 South tiebreaker (best BCS ranking)," Edwards said on Sunday.
Oklahoma is tied with Oklahoma State and Texas A&M atop the Big 12 South with identical 6-2 records in conference play. The BCS standings will be released later tonight, and if the Sooners officially find themselves above the Cowboys and Aggies, it will mark the second time in three years Oklahoma has won the Big 12 South via the BCS standings.
Oklahoma won the division in 2008 via a three-way tie with Texas Tech and Texas, who all went 7-1 in conference play.
