How Cowboys Can Make College Football Playoff

With Oklahoma State taking a massive win in the Bedlam Series, here’s how to make the College Football Playoff game.

The Bedlam series has rarely gone in favor of the Oklahoma State Cowboys, as evidenced by the Oklahoma Sooners’ 90 wins in 115 meets. This, and the Cowboys went on to win six consecutive games of defeats to the Sooners. That all changed on Saturday, as Oklahoma State scored a 37-33 win over Oklahoma.

With such a massive statewide win in the books, does Oklahoma State stand a chance of holding a college football game? Take a look at the odds they do.

How Oklahoma State Can Make a College Football Game

There is a way, albeit a long one.

The Cowboys actually got a good win over the Sooners to eliminate them from the playoff competition. They now move on to face the Baylor Bears in their Big 12 Championship match next weekend. Obviously, Oklahoma State needs to win this game to have a chance to make the playoff.

Next, Oklahoma State will need to monitor the SEC title match. The odds of winning a playoff only increase if the Alabama Crimson Tide loses to the undefeated Georgia Bulldog.

What next, you ask? Well, the Cowboys will need hope and prayers for the College Football Playoff Committee to earn some respect for them over the Notre Dame Fighting Irish team. In the latest rankings, Notre Dame is ranked one place ahead of Oklahoma.

Finally, and that’s a long shot, the Cowboys will need to count on the Michigan Wolverines, who took a big win over the Ohio State Buckeyes this weekend, losing to the Iowa Hawkeyes in the Big 10 championship game.

Next week he’ll tell the Cowboys, especially with the latest College Football Playoff rankings set to be revealed this Tuesday.
