DALLAS (AP) No. 25 Baylor and Iowa State lost for the first time last week and at least one more of the Big 12’s undefeated teams will lose its first game this week as No. 3 Oklahoma and 11th-ranked Texas meet in the Red River Rivalry.
Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops says he believes a one-loss team from the Big 12 could still compete for the national title because of league’s strength with six teams ranked in the Top 25.
Texas coach Mack Brown says the game against Oklahoma is “like a bowl game at midseason” and that there’s “nothing like it.”
