They lead the nation in total offence with 583.3 yards per game, including a whopping 8.44 yards per play.
The College Football Playoff Semifinals annually rotate among the New Year's Six bowl games - the Rose, Cotton, Fiesta, Peach, Orange and Sugar bowls. That's the third-longest active streak in the nation, trailing only Florida State (36) and Virginia Tech (25).
The Sooners' last Rose Bowl appearance was in 2003 when they beat Washington State 34-14.
While one could argue USC deserves to be in the conversation, too, since they'll have an identical record to Ohio State and also be the conference champion of a Power 5 conference, the conventional wisdom is that it will be an Ohio State-Alabama decision. That is the most points scored against TCU all season.
Russia pours scorn on US' call to cut ties with North Korea
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says that America's threat to destroy North Korea should war break out is "a bloodthirsty tirade" and a big mistake.
A week before the Heisman Trophy victor will be named, Mayfield finished 15-of-23 passing for 243 yards and take game MVP honors. Without a doubt, the biggest weapon of the Sooners this season is no other than their quarterback Baker Mayfield who completed 71 percent of his passes for a whopping 4,340 yards and 41 touchdowns with only five interceptions, and added 310 yards and five touchdowns on the ground.
18 - Linebacker Caleb Kelly's 18-yard fumble recovery for a touchdown on TCU's first possession of the game was the second OU defensive touchdown of the season. And if they need any reminder how hard he can be to defend, just ask Auburn. But he's far from the only offensive weapon the Bulldogs will have to worry about. Running back Rodney Anderson has 11 rushing touchdowns this fall, tied for second-most in the Big 12.
"I'm really proud of our group for not listening to all the noise on the outside and we've played pretty good ball here at the end", Sooners coach Lincoln Riley said. The Bulldogs were just one spot behind the Crimson Tide in this week's rankings and should jump Alabama easily, given the fact that they claimed the SEC championship this weekend and now have a better record than Alabama.
Baker Mayfield and Oklahoma are headed to the College Football Playoff. But the Sooners haven't had much trouble with the league in that same span, going 7-3 against SEC programs. No. 7 Auburn No. 3 Georgia vs. The last spot is likely to come down to Alabama or Ohio State.
Guardiola regrets Redmond pep talk
That led to suggestions that Guardiola might have been undermining Southampton boss Mauricio Pellegrino but the City boss has denied this.
This is also new territory for both head coaches.
Another common thread for these programs: They've both received pep talks from legendary coach Bob Stoops.
The Sooners have had issues with their defense all season, but that unit blanked TCU in the second half and may have answered any questions the CFP committee had for them. That feat has been accomplished only twice since the inception of the Associated Press poll in 1936 - by Michigan's Bennie Oosterbaan (1948) and Miami's Larry Coker (2001).
