 NEW YORK (AP) -Oklahoma is ahead of Texas in the BCS standings and headed to the Big 12 championship game with an inside track to the national title.
A three-way tie between Oklahoma, Texas and Texas Tech atop the Big 12 South standings forced the league to use its fifth tiebreaker, best BCS rating, to determine which team will play Missouri on Saturday in Kansas City, Mo.
The Sooners, who lost to Texas 45-35 in October, edged out the Longhorns by a hair. Oklahoma has a .9351 BCS average. Texas' BCS average is .9223.
Oklahoma is a point ahead of Texas in the USA Today coaches' poll and six points behind the Longhorns in the Harris Interactive. The computer ratings preferred the Sooners and that made the difference.
