WIN

The Oklahoma Sooners can likely play themselves into a National Championship game with a win in the Big 12 Title game over Missouri. The Sooners have been absolutely destroying all comers of late. It appears they are a different team than the one that lost to Texas and followed with an uninspired 14-point win over Kansas. In their last five games against Big 12 opponents (including some good ones), the Sooners are winning by 32.6 ppg - simply amazing. For Missouri the season was a good one, but fell short of expectations as they too felt like they had a National Championship-caliber team. But they just couldn't survive against the better teams in a very tough conference. The Tigers dropped three games, and that was without Texas Tech or Oklahoma on the schedule. Oklahoma is on a mission and Missouri was blown out by Texas. Missouri just hasn't measured up to the standards set by last year's team - and that team lost by 21 to the Sooners in the Championship game. These teams met twice last year, and although they were both high-scoring teams, both games went UNDER the total set for this one as they scored 72 in their regular season matchup and just 55 in the Championship game. As explosive as the Sooners have been over the last month, they are 8-0 to the UNDER in December games in their last eight, while the Tigers are 4-1 to the UNDER after allowing more than 280 passing yards in their last game. This total has reached the point where the only value is in the UNDER. Take the UNDER as well as the Sooners to win convincingly and move into the National Championship game.
