Texas will need some help other than just winning out.
Seriously, look at their schedule thus far.
1. Beat 4 teams ranked 71st or lower by the BCS (NT, ISU, Rice, Baylor)
2. Beat a I-AA team (Sam Houston) why the hell was this scheduled, even if it was scheduled 5 years ago?
3. Lost to the number 1 team (OSU)
4. Beat the number 22 team (OU)
Not alot of schedule strength in the first 7 games with only one win in the top 25 of the BCS. While the BCS doesn't ever give much love to the Big 12, given the above 4 points, I think a 9th in the rankings at the moment is fair. Nebraska is 17th. So how much of a help it will be is anyone's guess.
So going down the list... OSU I don't see losing a game. USC possibly loses to California (ranked 10th at the moment). Michigan loses to OSU. Auburn wins out against a weak remaining schedule. WVU wins out and probably over takes Auburn for the 4th spot. Florida wins out. Louisville loses to WVU and Pitt and gets thrown way back in the BCS standings (don't know why they are there at the moment). ND loses to USC.
My prediction is UT wins out, wins the Big 12 and plays Fiesta maybe finishing as high as 7th in the final BCS standings. Just not enough big wins left for them. Nebraska is their toughest test left.
Texas should win this week. Although in the back of my mind I hope Texas loses and then wins out until the last game and A&M wins out until the last game.
I'd be willing to pay "above reasonable" for a ticket on Nov 24 if that happens and I'll be eating my Turkey down in Austin.
