Sooners still have chance for Big 12 title


— Oklahoma still has a chance to get into the Big 12 championship game thanks to an unexpected loss by Texas and the Sooners' impressive comeback last weekend.

"Things still have to happen. We still have to take care of our stuff and then see what happens after that," Oklahoma quarterback Paul Thompson said. The Sooners know they first have to win today at downtrodden Baylor today. Then they have to get some more help.

"I won't let our focus change," coach Bob Stoops said. "We're going to Baylor this week, so that is where all of our energy is at."

Texas could have clinched the Big 12 South last weekend, but was upset 45-42 at Kansas State. About the same time, Oklahoma was overcoming a two-touchdown deficit to beat Texas Tech.
