Pickens: Okla St worth No.1 nod with win, LSU loss

Billionaire booster T. Boone Pickens says Oklahoma State should

receive first-place votes in The Associated Press poll if the

Cowboys romp past Stanford and Alabama knocks off No. 1 LSU in the

BCS championship game.

Speaking before the Fiesta Bowl on Monday night, Pickens said

that a win by No. 3 Oklahoma State over No. 4 Stanford followed by

a Crimson Tide victory on Jan. 9 in New Orleans would make things

murky for the BCS.

Alabama, Oklahoma State and Stanford all have one loss, but the

Crimson Tide earned a rematch against LSU in the BCS title game,

edging the Cowboys by .0086 points in the BCS standings.
