Will they, or won’t they – that’s the question for the Texas Longhorns as they approach the Big 12 Championship game versus Oklahoma State, ahead of a potential College Football Playoff berth. As it stands, Texas has sat at the No. 7 spot in the CFP’s rankings for weeks.

ESPN predicts Texas will stay there, too.

In this scenario, Oregon, Ohio State and Florida State would all land ahead of Texas.
