Bedlam Preview

An in-state rivalry that began in 1914, the Oklahoma State Cowboys and the Oklahoma Sooners have a lot of history. This is the 114th consecutive year the two teams have played each other. The Sooners have dominated the rivalry and lead with an 82-20-7 record. However, the teams are more evenly matched than they were in recent years. History says that OU should pull out the win, but there could be a different outcome based on the two teams’ performance this season.

After a loss to Kansas last week, the Sooners are vulnerable and weaknesses are exposed. For Oklahoma State, momentum has never been higher and Ollie Gordon II is the guy to watch. Will Gordon have another 200+ yard game and help the Cowboys go against the grain of history? Or, will Dillon Gabriel give another reason for his name to be in the running for the Heisman trophy? A win for the Cowboys would give coach Mike Gundy his 100th Big 12 win.

1st Quarter

OU wins the toss. Oklahoma State will receive.

Kickoff: Touchback. The Cowboys will start at their own 25.
