(Photo by Justin K. Aller/Getty Images)If the Oklahoma Sooners are going to clinch the final spot in the College Football Playoff, they might need help from the other conference championship games. However, the most important part is avenging their early-season loss to Texas.With the Sooners and the Longhorns ready to battle for the Big-12 Championship, it’s imperative that Lincoln Riley leads his crew to victory.The chance to play for a national championship isn’t out of reach, but there are certain results that have to come into fruition. Ultimately, here are the three scenarios that the Sooners probably need to happen, with No. 1 being imperative:Oklahoma defeats Texas in the Big-12 ChampionshipAlabama defeats Georgia in the SEC ChampionshipOhio State loses or narrowly defeats Northwestern in the Big Ten ChampionshipPerhaps the most important game will be the battle between the Buckeyes and the Wildcats.
