Former OU Sooner & FS1 analyst, Spencer Tillman, calls Big 12 Championship a toss up...
"I will tell you this, the axiom, 'It's tough to be somebody twice,' is true. It's especially true when you have coaches who are of the elk that this coaching staff at Baylor is and I think it is going to be much much more difficult than people realize," said Fox Sports 1 analyst, and former OU running back, Spencer Tillman. If the Bears can contain Jalen Hurts on the run and force Hurts to pass, Tillman believes that the Bears might be the next Big 12 Champion. If Utah were to lose to Oregon, and if LSU defeats Georgia in the SEC Championship, the winner of the Big 12 Championship just might be in the college football playoff as the 4 seed.
Clearly, with the selection committee slotting Utah at 5, they are showing their preference for the Pac-12 over the Big 12, which Tillman agrees with. But, as you know, anything can happen, and that's why they play the games. Spencer Tillman admires the work that Matt Rhule and his staff have done at Baylor to take them from a 1-11 team, two years ago, to 11-1, and preparing to go to AT&T Stadium to face the OU Sooners this Saturday.
Here's a portion of our interview with Spencer Tillman, as Tim Yeager and I sit down with the Fox Sports 1 Analyst.
