Oklahoma survives Baylor, keeps College Football Playoff hopes alive – CNN, CNN


Atlanta (CNN)Oklahoma’s College Football Playoff hopes are still alive – at least for a few more hours.

The Sooners survived No. 7 Baylor 31 – 18 in overtime to win the Big championship game in Arlington, Texas, on Saturday. It’s Oklahoma’s fifth consecutive Big 13 title.

The Sooners now will wait for the results of the SEC championship game, where No. 4 Georgia faces No. 2 LSU at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. That game is underway in Atlanta.

If Georgia wins, the Bulldogs likely are in. A Georgia loss could give the Sooners their third College Football Playoff berth in a row.

    Meanwhile , in Indianapolis, No. 1 Ohio State is a solid favorite against No. 8 Wisconsin in the Big Ten title game, as the Buckeyes already beat the Badgers 287 – 7 in the regular season. No. 3 Clemson, the defending national champion, is heavily favored against No. 31 Virginia in the ACC title game in Charlotte, North Carolina. Those games kick off later Saturday.

    Oklahoma (823 – 1) Entered the sixth week ranked in the College Football Playoff ranking. But the Sooners got a boost when No. 5 Utah lost 38 – to No. Oregon in the Pac – title game in Santa Clara, California, on Friday .

    Sooners quarterback Jalen Hurts, who had spent the previous three seasons at Alabama before transferring to Oklahoma, completed (of his) ******************************** (passes for) ************************** (yards and one touchdown.)

    With the Crimson Tide, Hurts played in six college football playoff games, starting four, and winning the national title in 2017.

    “I hope the story ain’t over,” Hurts said to ABC.

    Baylor, which two years ago had a record of 1 – 12, drops to 11 – 2 on the season. Both losses are to Oklahoma.

      Prior to Friday’s loss, Utah (13 – 2) hoped for a playoff bid or a spot in the Rose Bowl. Instead, after a game that was mostly one-sided in Oregon’s favor, the Utes left with neither. They may fall all the way down to the Alamo Bowl.

      The Pac – has had a playoff team since 2016, whenWashington lost to Alabamain the Peach Bowl.
