I can not wait to watch this game! I give a slight edge to OK mainly because they are playing at home. This will be a good test for Texas Tech( esp. their defense). Texas and Oklahoma States offenses aren't nearly as explosive as Oklahomas. TT biggest game up to this point was against Texas and that was at home. I am anxious to see how they do on the road against very tough competition.

I get the feeling lots of folks are taking Oklahoma in this game...that's making me lean toward Texas Tech.

Just have a feeling, they are better then people are giving them credit for. I think if they win this game against the Sooners, they could actually jump over Bama to the number 1 spot in the BCS.

I think if TT does win the game they SHOULD jump above Alabama. They would defiantly be deserving of the #1 ranking.

I have Oklahoma taking this after final review. But no doubt should TT win they deserve #1. This will be their what, 3rd victory over a top 5 team? And they've beaten #1 already.

Oklahoma and Florida are playing the best football in the country right now...TT beating them pretty much (in my book) makes them THE team to beat.

Florida should be automatically disqualified from any National Title talk due to the fact they are playing the Citadel this weekend. That right there should disqualify them from claiming any rights at all to a title.

Why do people hate Alabama? It seems like everyone is just chomping at the bit to see Alabama not #1.

For me it is not a case of hating Alabama( I have nothing personal against them), but more a case of the other teams I have mentioned being more deserving. IF TT beats Oklahoma that would have been their 3rd victory over a top 5 team and they did beat the Longhorns who were ranked #1 at the time. The level of competition TT has faced is far and above that of Alabama.

Once Alabama plays Florida, then that will certainlyeven things out in the strength-of-schedule department! Most of the so-called experts at this point in the season are already crowning UF as the national champs.

I like Texas Tech and hope they beat OU on Saturday, but I don't see it happening since the game is in Norman. Texas Tech has proven that they can win the big game at home, but they've yet under Mike Leach to go on the road and win somewhere like Norman or Austin against a high quality opponent.

I can't wait for this game. I would love to see TT run the table and play in the BCS title game.

A) Agree about the Citadel thing. That's shameful (and I don't care WHAT the excuse is..."bye weeks" should occur in the month of September ONLY). Florida will be forced to run the score up, too, so they don't risk being jumped.
B) Alabama has not played much of a schedule, and they've let bad teams hang around more than once. They are not a dominant football team. If they hang with UF I'll give them credit, but it just seems unlikely.
C) This OU TT game should be spectacular. 2 of the 3 best teams in the Country right now. (Sorry, UF is 3rd, not Bama)

Well, looks like we don't have to worry about whether or not TT should jump Alabama in the rankings. TT is getting manhandled by OK. It is half time and score is OK 42 TT 7!! To make matters worse, TT is losing their composure...getting personal foul penalties. This is a shocker. I picked OK to win, but I did NOT expect a score like this!

This is shocking. I thought it would at the very least be close.

Oh gosh this just keeps getting worse for TT. They had picked up a first down and the player fumbles the ball...OK takes it down to the 3 or 4 yard line and punches it in a few plays later....score now..OK 52 TT 7!! TT just can not do anything right tonight, they look absolutely horrible.

Been saying (and still say) the two best teams right now, when it counts, are UF and Oklahoma. If we can get that match-up, or maybe even Texas/Florida, it's going to be a great football game. I woudn't mind seeing Bama in the game, and if they win out they certainly deserve it, but can't see it happening.

Just as long as the Jorts don't win the whole thing I'm good...

I agree with you about the match-ups. I wouldn't mind seeing either of those ones you mentioned. I don't have anything against Alabama personally, I just think whoever they would play would more than likely blow them away. I want to see a good, competitive game, not one like TT/OK.
