Big 12 football: Sooners may have lost their chance at title

NORMAN, Okla. — The Red River Rivalry took a big hit in terms of national significance after both Texas and Oklahoma lost last week.
Even as painful as the Longhorns’ demoralizing loss to Kansas State might have been, the Sooners lost more in their fourth-quarter meltdown at Colorado. OU’s 27-24 loss likely cost it a shot at a national championship.
The Sooners aren’t likely to get much traction from a victory over No. 19 Texas on Saturday. And that could be the highest ranked team the Sooners face the rest of the season.
The Sooners say they still have plenty to play for in the Red River Rivalry. The two schools have accounted for the last eight South Division titles, with the Sooners winning five of them.
“We both know there’s a lot on the line,” OU wide receiver Malcolm Kelly said. “Rankings don’t matter. This is a big game every year because of the nature of the game.

Instant Analysis: Oklahoma-Colorado

The Oklahoma Sooners didn’t look ahead to Texas. They simply gave away the game they were dominating. The Colorado Buffaloes — after hesitating — decided to accept the donations that came their way, and a bombshell was born in Boulder.

In the most shocking upset of the young season, the No. 3 team in the land lost a 24-7 second-half lead to a scuffling program looking for any remote sign of hope. The homestanding Buffs never gave up, scratching and clawing on every single snap in a profound display of gritty determination. But at the end of the day, the simple and sober fact is that the Sooners handed this game to Colorado on a silver platter. An extended sequence midway through the fourth quarter told you all you needed to know about this mind-boggling affair, which took a big bite out of next week’s Red River Shootout in Dallas.
As for OU, the Sooner Schooner got grounded on an afternoon when nobody expected it.
