The BCS doesn't come out until after 7 p.m. ET on Sunday but here's a best guess of how the top five will look.
7. Texas Tech
Both human polls (Harris and coaches) have put Oklahoma ahead of Texas which should cause some consternation in certain quarters. The Longhorns beat the Sooners but OU obviously is playing better than anyone in the country with the possible exception of Florida.
"Hopefully they (voters) forget about that," Oklahoma linebacker Austin Box when reminded that his team lost to Texas.
For now, they have.
--Now the skinny on the three-way tie in the Big 12 South ... Who would you pick right now?
Why they're in this position: Blake Gideon, Graham Harrell and Michael Crabtree.
Texas had Tech beat in Lubbock until it gave the ball back with 1:29 left in the Nov. 1 game. Harrell was able to drive the team down for the game-winning touchdown with one second left. But that was only after Gideon, a Texas defensive back, dropped a tipped pass that would have ended Tech's drive.
Crabtree made an amazing catch against double coverage and tight-roped the sidelines into the end zone for a 39-33 victory.
Ranked teams beaten (ranking at time of kickoff): No. 1 Oklahoma 45-35; No. 11 Missouri 56-31; No. 7 Oklahoma State 28-24.
Common opponent with other two teams: Defeated Kansas 35-7.
Schedule strength (Sagarin): No. 5 (up from No. 7 last week)
BCS ranking going into Sunday: No. 3
Argument for: Defeated three teams ranked in the top 11, including No. 1 Oklahoma. Colt McCoy is this year's version of Tim Tebow leading the Horns in rushing and passing. Will Muschamp's defense might not be impressive statistically but it is a big play group and is coming off its best performance of the season against Kansas.
Argument against: Not much of one except that it didn't play on Saturday while Oklahoma got all the national love. If Texas doesn't get to the Big 12 title game it will be because of a six-point loss on the road with one second left against Texas Tech.
Regular-season game remaining: Thursday vs. Texas A&M
Why they're in this position: Worst game of the season came at the worst possible time.
Ranked teams beaten (ranking at time of kickoff): No. 19 Kansas 63-21; No. 1 Texas 39-33; No. 8 Oklahoma State 56-20.
Common opponent with other two teams: Defeated Kansas 63-21.
Schedule strength (Sagarin): No. 19 (up from No. 50 last week)
BCS ranking going into Sunday: No. 2
Argument for: Defeated No. 1 (Texas), last week's Heisman frontrunner (Harrell) and the nation's best receiver (Crabtree). But there's more than this high-flying offense. Texas Tech has been well -rounded most of the season with a serviceable running game and effective defense. Until Saturday.
Suddenly Tech has the best schedule strength of the three jumping from No. 50 to No. 19. Until Saturday, Utah State has played a tougher overall schedule than Texas Tech.
Argument against: You can't lose by 44 on national television on Nov. 22 and expect to play for a national championship, much less a Big 12 title.
But both are still a possibility.
Regular-season game remaining: Saturday vs. Baylor
Why they're in this position: Colt McCoy. Texas' quarterback had a career day on Oct. 11. The Sooners led by five with 12 minutes but were outscored 15-0 down the stretch the day in beating Oklahoma.
Other than that, Kansas (14) has been the only team to get within 22 points of OU.
Ranked teams beaten (ranked at the time of kickoff): No. 24 TCU, 35-10; No. 2 Texas Tech, 65-21.
Common opponent with other two teams: Defeated Kansas 45-31.
Schedule strength (Sagarin): No. 26 (up from No. 42 last week)
BCS ranking going into Sunday: No. 5
Argument for: Playing the best right now. OU has laid waste to its opponents since losing to Texas. It has won successive games by 14, 23, 34, 38 and 44 points.
Sam Bradford leads the country in touchdown passes and seems to be the new Heisman leader.
Argument against: Beat Tech which beat Texas which beat Oklahoma. Oh no, here we go again.
Regular-season game remaining: Saturday at Oklahoma State
