Shinn on game day: What does beating TCU mean?

NORMAN — FORT WORTH, Texas — A victory this afternoon against TCU would give Oklahoma at least a share of the Big 12 championship for the eighth time in the last 14 years.

But here are some of the other things the Sooners can achieve with the victory over the Horned Frogs:

• A BCS bowl berth (most likely the Sugar Bowl) for the ninth time since 2000.

• Finish the season 5-0 against teams from Texas. (OU’s already beaten UTEP, Texas Tech, Texas and Baylor).

• Go undefeated in the regular season away from Owen Field for the first time since 2004.

• Give OU a 10-win season for 11th time since 2000. Virginia Tech is the only other school from a BCS conference that has accomplished this that many times since 2000.

• Improve to 5-0 all time in Fort Worth. The Sooners won the previous meetings with the Horned Frogs.
