(Austin-AP) -- A month ago, Texas was trying to figure out how to save its season after getting smashed by top-ranked Oklahoma.

Once in the national title race, the Longhorns weren't even thinking about the Bowl Championship Series any more.

Well, think again.

Fresh off an impressive win over Nebraska, 11th-ranked Texas (7-2, 4-1 Big 12) sits at Number 12 in the B-C-S standings heading into tomorrow night's matchup against Number 21 Oklahoma State (7-2, 3-2).

The top 12 teams are eligible for BCS bowl bids.

The Longhorns say they're taking it one game at a time.

But Texas fans are eyeing a potential at-large bid to the Fiesta Bowl should they win their last three games.
