What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
As is prone to happen in December, the Dubsism College Football Heavyweight title has changed hands yet again. If you recall, two weeks ago, the Oklahoma State Cowboys wrested the belt away from the Baylor Bears. In turn, Oklahoma took it away from Oklahoma during their annual “Bedlam” rivalry game. Saturday marked the fifth time that the “Bedlam” game also served as a title fight, and they’ve historically not gone well for the boys from Stillwater.
Another thing that is prone to happen is the belt changes conferences in the bowl season. Say what you will, but that opportunity will arise again when Oklahoma meets Alabama in the Sugar Bowl. The fun fact in all of the 1,479 title fights there have been since the dawn of college football, the Sugar Bowl will mark the first time these two storied programs will meets with the Dubsism Belt on the line. That’s pretty amazing considering Alabama and Oklahoma combined have made have 135 appearances in such match-ups, with Alabama being in 74 (57 wins, 17 losses) and Oklahoma being in 61 (46 wins, 15 losses).
Should Alabama win the Sugar Bowl, it would mark the first time in two years the Dubsism Belt didn’t rest in the hands of a Big 12 team since West Virginia took it away from the ACC in the 2012 Orange Bowl. The ACC held the belt for a ten-game stretch in 2011 when Clemson took it from Auburn after a regular season win versus Auburn in September. Other than that ten-game span, the belt has been in the hands of either the Big 12 or the SEC since January 2007 when Florida won it from Ohio State in the BCS Championship Game.
