Should Oklahoma State beat Texas today, it would have a 26% chance to win the Big 12. And while Texas is a long shot, the Longhorns aren't totally out of it either. With a win, their chances of winning the conference would go up from 4% to 9%.

The NFL is asking for an expedited hearing next week with hopes of a resolution by Oct. 27. If Elliott were to not win the injunction, his six-game suspension would begin immediately.
