Sooner4OU Commentary: This week’s game has become bigger with Alabama’s loss and K-State moving in to the top slot in the BCS rankings.  If OU can get the job done in Morgantown then they are lining themselves up for a potential BCS bowl bid.  If they continue to win out, a slot in the Fiesta Bowl becomes very likely.
