ISU has a narrow path

Iowa State.
Could get into the CFB playoff if Iowa State wins the Big 12 championship game, if Texas A & M loses to Tennessee, and if Ohio State loses to Northwestern (and maybe if Fla doesn't defeat Alabama).

They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

I know. I posted it as a serious post but is mildly humorous.

Pretty unlikely but I guess never say never.

Come to that, if either ISU or OU get the 'rona this week, Texas plays in the CCG! =)

my brother wanted me to visit over Xmas, I was thinking about attending the game if they allowed fans and I could score tickets for a decent price

a lady that works with me will be attending with her husband

Personally, i think everything will proceed as planned.

I wouldn't be able to grasp the logistics of the situation. Say ISU fails out a position group on Wednesday. I can't imagine Texas is holding "game week" style practices right now in anticipation of attacking OU. It's in the rules, and that IS the way it would go, but I don't see how a team could just get replaced on what could only be 3 days notice at this point.

Yes.  There's no way you could possibly put your best foot forward in that situation.  In theory, that's what the B12 would require and ask. In practice, Texas would just claim COVID-issues and say "no thanks."
