    I’ll post about the Saturday game sometime Sunday but in answer to your question, it’s pretty much all about RPI. The NCAA is actually posting their RPI numbers this year (a first, I believe): link.

    Through games played as of May 13, Texas A&M had the #5 RPI in the country. The Horns had the #4 RPI. At that time, Texas was at 39-14 (11-5 on the road) and A&M was at 40-12 (10-5 on the road). Interestingly, the vast majority of the Aggies’ losses were to Big 12 teams. Of Texas’ 14 losses, 8 were to Big 12 teams. Of the Aggies’ 12 losses, 10 (!) were to Big 12 teams. Only 2 non-conference losses. That’s rather remarkable if you think about it.
