Nice schedule Texas, you PUSSIES

And if non-conference strength of schedule becomes the deciding factor again, OU has to like its chances over Texas in spite of last week’s announcement that Idaho State — essentially Tennessee-Chattanooga Part II — would complete the Sooners’ non-conference slate.

That’s because OU’s other three opponents — Brigham Young, at Miami and Tulsa — all qualified for bowls and finished a combined 28-12 last season.

Meanwhile, of Texas’ four 2009 non-league opponents — Louisiana-Monroe, at Wyoming, Central Florida and Texas-El Paso — none had a winning record in 2008.
