Sunday, November 23, 2008. (AP) -- The initial news from the BCS standings looked good for Texas. The long-range forecast, however, favors Oklahoma.
The Longhorns stayed ahead of the Sooners on Sunday -- but not by much -- and moved into the coveted second spot in the standings, thanks to a better computer rating.
Alabama remained on top of the standings, a comfortable No. 1 in both the USA Today coaches' poll and Harris poll, and tops according to the computers.
Texas is close behind Oklahoma in both polls, but has the second-best computer rating. The Longhorns' BCS average is .9209.
Oklahoma is at .9125. But the Sooners are at Oklahoma State (9-2) on Saturday and should get a boost if they emerge with a win. Texas plays Texas A&M (4-7) on Thanksgiving.
