With a College Football Playoff appearance in sight, the Oklahoma Sooners still need to win to get in.
That begins on Saturday against the No. 6-ranked TCU Horned Frogs before closing out the final two weeks of the regular season against Kansas and West Virginia.
What are the odds of Oklahoma cruising through its final three-week stretch unscathed and improving to 11-1 before a Big 12 Championship appearance?
According to SportsLine data analyst Stephen Oh, who simulates every college football game for CBS Sports, that magic number is a 38.2 percent chance for the Sooners to win out, although that doesn’t include the Big 12 Championship.
On a more individual basis, Oklahoma is projected to have a 58.6 percent chance to notch its second ranked win in as many weeks on Saturday against TCU. The following week against Kansas, the Sooners are projected with a 93.3 percent chance to win before that number drops to 69.6 percent for the regular season finale against West Virginia.
For the ultimate goal of a College Football Playoff appearance to prove true, not only will Oklahoma have to come out on top in each of its three remaining regular season matchups, as it’s projected to do, but win the Big 12 Championship, as well.
Along with CBS Sports, the general expectation is that Oklahoma will at least get a shot at doing just that, as ESPN’s FPI projects the Sooners as the favorite in each remaining game, as well.
