    Just a thought, but I was thinking about this before the game and I think it's a legitimate chance now.

    IF (and it's still a big if) we win out AND blowU wins out too, it's a very good chance we will play them in the MNC.

    Can you imagine a rivalry game of this sorts for the title?

    If I remember correctly, they added a rule that you have to win your conference to play for the BCS title.

    A BCS MNC championship is unlikely to feature two teams from the same conference.

    The reason is psychological game theory: the coaches from other conferences will not allow this to happen and manipulate their final votes to prevent this.

    I am aware of no such rule. Anyone have a link?

    i agree with the physcological factor but think this may be a year where that doesn't hold up due to the fact that the big 12 is so strong and both teams play such a hard schedule that it's possible. There may be reverse physhology due to the fact that the game yesterday was so amazing and well played on both sides

    The computers should favor Texas and OU the rest of the way as long as we both win out.

    There's no written rule, but the human voters would make sure that it wouldn't happen with their votes in the final Coaches' and Harris polls, even if it meant radically altering their previous votes (see last year's final human polls for an example of voters significantly shifting their votes). .

    Well, imo, i think ou and ut are by far the best 2 teams in the country, but i dont want to play ou again this year.

    As I recall, several years ago a Texas-ou match for the national championship was also looking like a possibility. I think that some of us were frothing at the mouth about it .

    Of course, this will not happen.

    The BCS officials discussed this after Nebraska made the title game a few years ago but ultimately decided against it.

    I would love a rematch. Win or Lose, OU/UT in the MNC game would be an amazing atmosphere, especially down in Miami. Don't think it will happen, but would be awesome to see!!

    I'd rather see us play Alabama.
