OU Ranked #9 in Coaches and Harris Polls, Look To Be Headed To Dallas

The Coaches and Harris Polls have been released, and they bear good news for Sooners fans.

The Coaches Poll puts Oklahoma at #9, and six spots ahead of Oklahoma State. Texas A&M is way back at #18. Meanwhile, the Harris Poll gives Oklahoma an even bigger lead at #9, with Oklahoma State seven spots back. Texas A&M is still a distant finisher.

Why does this matter? Since there is a three-way tie for the Big 12 South, the tiebreaker goes to BCS Rankings. With 2/3 of the BCS formula in, the Sooners hold a 0.207 point lead over Oklahoma State, and a 0.285 point lead over Texas A&M. The average of the human polls gives the Sooners about 0.637 BCS points so far.

Since the computers are just a third of the BCS, Oklahoma State or Texas A&M would need to double their point deficits to wind up being ranked ahead of the Sooners. This is just about mathematically impossible for Oklahoma State, and especially Texas A&M.

Punch your tickets to Dallas.
