Big 12 Title Game Scenarios: Who OSU Will Play in Arlington for the Championship

It’ll either be OU or Baylor.

OSU with a win over Texas Tech and an OU win over Iowa State clinched a spot Saturday in the Big 12 title game, but who it will play in the game will not be decided until this weekend. And, of course, there are different scenarios that will determine the opponent.

At least the options are now down to two.

A win Saturday over OU likely sets up a rematch with Baylor for the crown, but a loss will set up Bedlam 2.0. Let’s get to the scenarios, which are as follows:

  • If OU wins Bedlam, the Big 12 title game will be a Bedlam rematch
  • If OU loses Bedlam and Baylor loses to Texas Tech, the Big 12 title game will be a Bedlam rematch
  • If OU loses Bedlam and Baylor beats Texas Tech, the Big 12 title game will be OSU vs. Baylor

OSU beat 24-14 in October so a rematch against the Bears would seemingly be a welcome one. TBD on if that’d be the preferred matchup instead of OU, though. The Sooners have struggled a bit with close wins, but they do keep winning and are one away from playing for the conference crown.

OU and Baylor already played each other last week, and Baylor at home won 27-14.

The Big 12 title game will be OSU’s first appearance since it was reinstalled in 2017. OU has appeared in — and won — each of the last four games.
