TCU's double OT win over Baylor knocked the Bears out of the CFP and race for the Big 12 title, leaving Oklahoma vs. Ok State the de facto Big 12 title game. The league needs the Sooners to win because they are currently No. 3 and its best shot at a one-loss champ in the top four. The Cowboys sit at No. 11, clearly not a top team right now in the eyes of the committee. If Bama, Clemson and Big Ten take three spots, Ok St could be left out in favor of ND, or possibly even Stanford. Big 12 fans should root for Stanford tomorrow, and then for Stanford to lose in Pac-12 title game -- just to be safe.
