DALLAS (AP) _ Oklahoma's loss at Texas Tech did more than knock the 10th-ranked Sooners out of the national championship picture.

It kept Texas in contention for the Big 12 South title and a possible BCS game.

The Number 13 Longhorns had an 0-and-2 conference record for the first time since 1956 after their 28-to-21 loss to OU on October 6th. They have since won five games in a row.

If Texas wins Friday at Texas A&M, and OU loses Saturday to Oklahoma State, the Longhorns are the Big 12 South champions.

That would put them in the Big 12 championship game, where another victory would guarantee a BCS game.

Still, coach Mack Brown doesn't want his team looking past Texas A&M, which won last year's grudge match.

Meanwhile, Bob Stoops has to get OU over its disappointment and ready for Bedlam.

Stoops says he values conference championships and his team will have to be disciplined to get that done.
