ESPN analysts like Rece Davis are feeling increasingly confident about the Texas Longhorns’ chances of securing the Big 12 Championship, as well as a spot in the College Football Playoff.

“Texas is going to the College Football Playoff and I think they all but secured a spot. I know there’s there’s a very specific scenario that might keep them out, but I think they have basically secured a spot, because the last team that could beat them did not,” ESPN analyst Rece Davis said earlier this week, according to Inside Texas.

Davis added, “They survived a scare and everything has fallen in place now, because the remainder of their schedule, they’re incapable of beating them in my judgment, barring a a horrific performance from Texas. And then in the championship game, the teams that will likely be there – Oklahoma State most likely – I don’t think is suited to beat them, because you’re not going to run on them. So I think Texas had a gargantuan weekend and is really close, despite the one loss, to have having secured a spot in the CFP.”
