Oklahoma football: No. 13 Sooners rout Texas, 63-21

“Regardless of what any other Big 12 team is doing or what Big 12 offenses are doing to Big 12 defenses, we don’t want any of that to happen to us.”

Speaking of other Big 12 teams, No. 5 West Virginia, widely considered the class of the conference, was blasted 49-14 Saturday at Texas Tech, where Oklahoma left a convincing winner just a week ago.

The first BCS Standings — the ranking system used to determine January’s national championship matchup — are scheduled to be released Sunday, and the Sooners are sure to be in the top 10.

Kansas State, which handed the Sooners their only loss of the season weeks ago, remains the Big 12’s lone unbeaten, but got all it wanted from Iowa State on Saturday.

With the strength of Oklahoma’s remaining schedule — after next Saturday’s home game against Kansas, the conference’s last-place team, OU hosts undefeated Notre Dame — the Sooners are still alive in the national championship race, which seemed like a pipe dream after the KSU loss.

“Everybody likes to project too much,” Stoops said. “We’re 4-1. All we’ve gotta do is keep making corrections and be better against Kansas and keep taking it down the road. I don’t want to look to the end.”
