2011 Bowl Predictions: Oklahoma, Oklahoma St. With BCS Bowl Hopes

The 2011 college football season is nearing the final weeks, making the bowl prediction season as hot as ever. SB Nation has collected and compiled the opinions of four college bowl gurus and predictors: ESPN's Brad Edwards and Mark Schlabach, Scout.com, and CollegeFootballBowlProjections.com.

Altogether, the Oklahoma Sooners and Oklahoma St. Cowboys are standing pretty:

 

Bowl Edwards Scout Schlabach CFBP

 

BCS Championship, 1/9 LSU-Oklahoma State LSU-Oklahoma LSU-Oklahoma State LSU-Stanford

 

Orange, 1/4 Clemson-Cincinnati Clemson-Cincinnati Clemson-Cincinnati Clemson-Cincinnati

 

Sugar, 1/3 Alabama-Stanford Alabama-Boise State Alabama-Boise State Alabama-Oklahoma State

 

Rose, 1/2 Wisconsin-Oregon Wisconsin-Oregon Stanford-Michigan State Wisconsin-Oregon

 

Fiesta, 1/2 Oklahoma-Boise State Oklahoma State-Stanford Oklahoma-Oregon Oklahoma-Boise State

Projected as favorites to face off against the LSU Tigers, Oklahoma St. may just get their chance at a first-ever national championship this January. A glance at the Cowboys' remaining schedule shows one major final hurdle for a championship run:

The Cowboys need to overcome one a major obstacle -- the 8-1 Sooners -- not to mention a dangerous Texas Tech Red Raiders team. The Oklahoma Sooners, who face Iowa State, Baylor, and Oklahoma State to finish the season, have earned blessings from three out of four projectors to see a Tostitos Fiesta Bowl showing.

Scout.com also thinks Oklahoma, number 6 in the BCS Rankings, still has a shot at the national championship. And, given how the Nebraska loss suddenly shook the top rankings, anything is still possible for this 2011 season. All we know for certain: The last game of the season in Oklahoma is going to be a big one -- for both teams.
