The top two teams in the Big 12 square off in Waco, Texas on Saturday.
The Oklahoma Sooners enter Saturday at 8-1 overall, 5-1 in the Big 12, and now sit in second place in the conference.
In order for the victor of the OU/Baylor game (presuming they go undefeated the rest of the way), the Big 12 will need losses by at least three teams (probably Oregon, Minnesota, Georgia, Clemson or Alabama). Provided that the undefeated Bears at the moment are properly outside of qualifying, a 1-loss victor Bears group received't get in.
Because of this, it seems just like the loser of Saturday's Oklahoma-Baylor match will certainly be faraway from College Soccer Playoff rivalry.
Humphrey, the ESPN midseason All-American, was the lone returning starter from the Sooners' 2018 Joe Moore Award-winning unit and continues to be a consistent force in the middle for this explosive Oklahoma offense.

Bale says prefers playing for Wales over Real
Gareth Bale has explained why he is more excited about playing for Wales than he is for LaLiga giants Real Madrid . The Welsh winger has been absent from the Real Madrid squad in the past couple of weeks owing to an injury.
The Sooners offense has produced back-to-back Heisman Trophy winners, and Jalen Hurts is putting up numbers that few can rival at the collegiate level. Recently, we have seen the Sooners defense struggle.
Oklahoma is, per the College Football betting sites, 1-4 ATS in the last five games overall. They rank 39th in S&P+ and 26th in defensive success rate. The OU offensive line has generally played well this season, but this will be its biggest test.
Baylor's best chance of winning the game is to take a page out of the Kansas State playbook and keep Jalen Hurts and the nation's No. 1 offense on the sidelines for as long as possible. The Oklahomies entered last weekend as 14.5-point home chalk but failed to deliver the goods once again this year. The Cardinals are vulnerable against quality offenses, but they catch a break this week and should take care of business versus punchless NC State. The Sooners have scored at least 34 points in 19 consecutive games. Five of their last seven games have been decided by one score, including a triple-OT victory in Week 11 at TCU. "Hey @chipgaines catching up on a recent magazine when a thought occurred to me..." he jokingly captioned the post. Rhule said he doesn't want to be short a defender in other parts of the field against Oklahoma's multifaceted attack, and tackling Lamb when he catches the ball will be of utmost importance. On the other hand, the Sooners defense allowed 477 total yards, including 282 through the air. They are now holding opponents to 4.4 yards per play, which ranks tenth in the country.
The Oklahoma-Baylor game kicks off at 7:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
"You look at this game here, as a team, we definitely put ourselves in a disgusting situation", Hurts said. The public betting now has 55 percent going on Baylor as the home favorite. As of writing this, 72 percent of the tickets are on the over.
In Dinich's worst-scenario state of affairs, Baylor loses to Oklahoma simply earlier than beating them within the Huge 12 Championship Sport. As inconsistent as Baylor's offense has been, I think they'll be able to exploit Oklahoma's weakness in allowing big plays.
