With the MAC Championship threatening the Oklahoma Sooners' chance at a BCS bowl, Saturday's game against the TCU Horned Frogs is an important final chance for OU to make an impression on voters. After opening as an eight-point favorite against TCU, Oklahoma is now only favored by 6.5 points, according to OddsShark.
The Horned Frogs have lost four times in 2012, but only one of those losses came by a margin of less than 13 points. Simply put, in the games that TCU has lost, it has typically been a bad loss.
However, the Sooners enter the game after having won in back-to-back close games. One week after defeating West Virginia by just one point, Oklahoma beat Oklahoma State by just three. The only two losses for the Sooners came against teams that held the BCS' top ranking at some point during the season, including the current No. 1 team, Notre Dame.
