A look at rematches
Conventional wisdom says that it is hard to beat a football team twice in one season. The reality is somewhat different. Since the creation of conference championship games, eight contests have been rematches from the regular season. Seven of the eight games were won by the team that won earlier in the year. Take a look:
|2000||Big 12||Oklahoma-Kansas St.||Oklahoma||Oklahoma|
Does this make BC a lock for Saturday? No. But it does confirm that good teams often beat other good teams twice in one season.
