Getting Texas into the Top 10 is great for the Sooners’ prospects of making the College Football Playoff, as they would have a Top 10 win to their resume. Also, something that probably is flying under the radar is that Army moved into the Top 25. This is also good for the Sooners, as they struggled to beat Army early in the season.
The Sooners and Longhorns meet on Saturday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas for the Big 12 Championship.
