Only three of the 15 major college football teams still without a loss don't have a fellow unbeaten looming later this season.
Ohio, in the Mid-American Conference, isn't a serious national-title contender. Ohio State is still on probation and ineligible for postseason play.
That leaves Notre Dame, which visits Norman on Oct. 27.
“Our guys have had a great attitude, and I keep saying that,” coach Bob Stoops said after Saturday's win. “They worked hard, and they played hard two weeks ago (against Kansas State).
“You look at today's game. We had the big turnovers, and it made a huge difference in the game.”
With all the week-to-week fluidity in college football and Saturday's across-the-board domination — plus assistance from teams like North Carolina State, which shocked top-five Florida State — an Oklahoma title-game appearance doesn't seem like nearly the stretch it did two weeks ago.
