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. Ohio State gained tons of momentum with its convincing win over Michigan last weekend, yet that would come crashing down with an upset loss to Northwestern.In addition, another loss for Georgia would most likely knock them out of contention.Obviously, the Sooners would make a tremendous statement by dismantling the Longhorns in the rematch.It should be one chaotic Saturday for college football fans.last_img read more
