IRVING, Texas (AP) -While Oklahoma got to play in the Big 12 and BCS championship games last year, the Sooners' regular season record was the same as Texas and Texas Tech.
All three were 11-1 overall and 7-1 in the Big 12 South. Each loss was to another team in the trio. The Big 12's fifth tiebreaker - BCS standings - was needed to determine the title game team.
Texas coach Mack Brown, whose team beat the Sooners, says the Longhorns have to forget about tiebreakers. He has reminded his team they wouldn't have come into play if they had won at Tech.
At a Big 12 media day Wednesday, Brown also compared the expectations for this year's team to 2005, when the Longhorns won the national title.
Texas Tech coach Mike Leach says he doesn't expect things to be dramatically different this season despite the loss of quarterback Graham Harrell and receiver Michael Crabtree.
