OU — as it has done all season — survived yet another close one. The Sooners on Saturday outlasted Iowa State, 28-21, making OSU’s path to a Big 12 title appearance simple.
An ISU win would have complicated matters but now all OSU needs is a win either Saturday in Lubbock or next Saturday against OU in Stillwater.
Win and you’re in.
The No. 9 Cowboys got some help Saturday for their long shot hopes to make the playoff, too, with No. 7 Michigan State getting thrashed by Ohio State. Win out, and things get really interesting.
But one step at a time. The OU win sets the Pokes up to clinch an appearance in the conference title game. Regardless of the Tech game result, it should only elevate the attention Bedlam will attract next week in the regular season finale.
