Who wants it?

SAN ANTONIO - Still tied, and now the pressure's on.
For a moment, it looked like Missouri was the team handling it the best.
But only for a moment.

Oklahoma began the ball and went three and out.
Then Missouri got it and drove 68 yards to the 25, but that's when the playmaking began.
Jeremy Beal sacked Chase Daniel for a loss of 10. After a subbing infraction, Beal chased a scrambling Daniel down for a loss of 2. Finally, facing third and long, Daniel managed to get away fom Beal, only to be sacked by Gerald McCoy.

Spurred by their defense, and a 40-yard run by Allen Patrick, OU needed just seven plays to go 80 yards and take the lead back 21-14. Patrick did the honors from 4 yards.

Clearly, having a national championship there for the taking can be a hard carrot to grab.

Here Missouri is, playing well, yet trailing.
And in Morgantown, with 3 minutes to play, Pitt leads West Virginia 13-7.

They're going crazy in Columbus and Athens.
