Either way, I think it would be hard to argue that OK State is the better team.
True, but they do have a common opponent in MSU. OSU won 21-3 at a neutral site and Bama won 20-7 at MSU. Baylor is also by far the highest ranked victory for either team. Oklahoma is also right behind LSU in the rankings right now and well ahead of Texas A&M (Bama's 2nd best win) who is just 1 spot ahead of Texas (OSU's 3rd best win assuming they beat OU).
There are plenty of arguments why Oklahoma State as the Big 12 champion would deserve that 4th spot ahead of Alabama. All that said it would more than likely be Alabama and none of it might matter after the weekend (they both might be in or OSU could lose rendering the point moot).
