Oklahoma State Continues To Crush Oklahoma With 41-3 Lead In Third Quarter

The latest strike was a 37 yard touchdown pass to Jeremy Smith. That put the Oklahoma State Cowboys up 41-3 over the Oklahoma Sooners with over five minutes to go in the third quarter. And yes, if that sounds a bit obnoxious and over the top, you’d be correct. It’s clear, however, that OSU understands exactly what they must do if they are going to convince the powers-that-be in the BCS that they deserve a shot at the National Title.

Merely beating the Sooners at this point will likely leave them in the same place, which is why after already being up 24-3 at halftime, the Cowboys continue to pour it on the Sooners. A Landry Jones sack and fumble led to one touchdown. Quinn Sharp hit yet another field goal. Then came Smith’s second touchdown of the night. One after another, Oklahoma State continues to win the battle on both sides of the ball.

At this point, the Sooners have four turnovers and it should only go downhill from here. If the Cowboys really know what’s at stake this domination should and will continue until the clock runs out.

Oklahoma State Exhibits 'Complete Domination' Over Oklahoma In First Half Of Big 12 Championship

The Oklahoma State Cowboys are up 24-3 over the Oklahoma Sooners and it’s clear this game isn’t even close. The Sooners have been outplayed in every aspect and have even given up completely on their running game after trying 10 times for 6 rushing yards. The end result is an astounding 38 passing attempts from OU quarterback Landry Jones and a beatdown in a major game with BCS implications for the Cowboys of Oklahoma State

ESPN’s Big 12 blogger David Ubben says that OSU needs to keep beating OU as much as possible for the chance to play in the national title game. Luckily it’s what they’ve been doing all night.

Ubben writes, “Complete domination by Oklahoma State to this point, even more complete than anyone probably could have expected. A mental block against the Sooners, who have won eight consecutive Bedlams? I think not. OSU is on point. The Cowboys are a better team than Oklahoma, but not this much better. The Cowboys are out to prove something to … pretty much everyone.”

Oklahoma State Beating Oklahoma 24-3 Behind Joseph Randle's Two Touchdowns

It’s not the Brandon Weeden to Justin Blackmon connection that everyone expected to be the story. In fact, if you would have said that Brandon Weeden would have a rather pedestrian 14 for 21 for 156 yards and 0 touchdowns in the first half of tonight’s Oklahoma State versus Oklahoma game, you might believe that the Sooners were well-ahead of the Cowboys. Instead, OSU is up 24-3 heading into the second half in a game that the Cowboys have dominated every facet of the ball.

Instead, it’s Joseph Randle who is the story of the Oklahoma State offense, the running back who already has 21 rushing touchdowns on the season. Tonight, he’s added two to that total in the first half and Jeremy Smith added another in the first quarter, showing off a dynamic well-rounded offense that warrants a look for the national title. In total, Randle had 11 carries for 69 yards in the first half.

As for Oklahoma, they abandoned the run after getting 6 carries on 10 attempts to put the game in Landry Jones’ hands. The results aren’t good as Jones has 38 pass attempts already and has nothing valuable to show for it. He’s thrown zero touchdowns and 1 interception and the OU offense just hasn’t looked good all night.

There’s a lot of time left, but OSU is clearly the better team thus far.

Oklahoma State Vs. Oklahoma: Bob Stoops Believes Sooners Are Big 12 Champs With Win

There’s no question in Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops’ mind as to who is the winner of the Big 12: the winner of today’s game between the Sooners and the Oklahoma State Cowboys. Stoops told the USA Today that the Cowboys obviously win if they do, but that the Sooners deserve the honor if they win, despite the presence of Kansas State.

“What happened to the one true champion that was promoted when I was down there for Big 12 media day? Isn’t that what everyone talked about?” said Stoops to the USA Today. “That means if they [Oklahoma State] win, they are the champions. If we win, we are since we would have beaten K-State and them. It’s pretty simple math to me.”

State coach Mike Gundy agreed, ""I’ve said this for the last few years and I said it in August and throughout the season that in order for us to win a Big 12 Championship, we have to go through Austin and Norman; and I don’t think that changes until a team accomplishes that goal," said Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy on Monday."

Oklahoma State Predicted To Beat Oklahoma For Big 12 Championship

Stewart Mandel of Sports Illustrated is the latest to weigh in with his predictions for today’s major football games, and he believes the Oklahoma State Cowboys are going to have what it takes to hold off the Oklahoma Sooners and claim their prize of the Big 12 Champions for the 2011-12 season. If so, they will also cement Kansas State in second place and send the Sooners to a rather forgettable season.

Mandel writes, “The Cowboys have been waiting 15 days to erase the taste of that Iowa State loss. The Sooners don’t want to cede state supremacy. Neither team will be able to stop the other (much like in last year’s shootout), which means the biggest question is whether Mike Gundy’s team truly believes it can end its eight-game losing streak to the Sooners. The Cowboys do, and they will.”

Today’s game kicks off at 7:00 p.m. CT and can be seen on ABC.

Oklahoma State Vs. Oklahoma: Brandon Weeden Must Avoid Sooners' Pass Rush

The Oklahoma Sooners have dealt with a rash of injuries this season. Certainly the loss of Ryan Broyles was the biggest loss for the team this year -- or at least the highest-profile. However, the loss of Ronnell Lewis has to be up there, and that's what ESPN's David Ubben is referring to when he writes that the Oklahoma pass rush must make up for the loss of Lewis for this game and find another strong defensive effort without him.

Ubben writes, "The Sooners won't have one of the league's best, Ronnell Lewis. They will, however, have the league's best, Frank Alexander. OU needs to get as much push as possible with its front four. Brandon Weeden's smart. If Oklahoma starts needing to bring a lot of guys to get in his face, big plays will follow. Alexander and Lewis' replacement(s), David King and R.J. Washington, can do it. Will they?"

On the season, Lewis has 5.5 sacks and 11 tackles for loss.

Oklahoma State Vs. Oklahoma: Big 12 Championship Predicted To Go To Cowboys

It’s not an official championship game of course. Today, the SEC, Big Ten, Pac-12 and several smaller conferences will all crown their winners via an official conference championship. And despite the presence of Kansas State in the standings — currently tied at No. 2 with Oklahoma — tonight’s Oklahoma State vs. Oklahoma match-up might as well be considered the Big 12 Championship Game after all.

David Ubben is ESPN’s Big 12 blogger and he has the Cowboys beating the Sooners. Ubben writes, “I picked Oklahoma State in this game last year, and got burned. This time around, though, I’m trying it again. I thought Oklahoma would win this game all year, but the stars have aligned for the Cowboys. Oklahoma isn’t the same team since losing Ryan Broyles. OSU is the better team. It’s the healthier team. It’s the home team. They have more on the line. If they can’t beat Oklahoma in this situation, when will they do it? More on this game later today in my Pick of the Week video.”

His final prediction: OSU 37, OU 31

Oklahoma Sooners Predicted To Beat Oklahoma State In Big 12 Championship By Scouts, Inc.

Despite the two losses already on the season, the up and down performance of Oklahoma and the loss of Ryan Broyles among others this year, Scouts, Inc. likes the Oklahoma Sooners in today’s match-up against the Oklahoma State Cowboys when they break everything down. That’s an impressive statement since the Cowboys are the only team left that can really break up the LSU-Alabama match everyone is predicting for the national championship — assuming LSU wins today against Georgia.

“Jones is not playing with the expected consistency and has thrown zero touchdowns and three interceptions in the two games since Broyles went down. Still, Jones is capable of shredding the Oklahoma State secondary with Reynolds back in the lineup this week. More importantly, Oklahoma’s defense usually shows up in big games, so we expect the Sooners to turn in an emotionally charged performance. Look for Alexander to turn up the heat, and for Weeden and his offensive line to be left guessing thanks to myriad blitzes, dogs, twists and stunts. This has Sooners upset written all over it.”

The final prediction from Scouts, Inc. is Oklahoma Sooners 33, Oklahoma State Cowboys 27.

Oklahoma State Vs. Oklahoma: Justin Blackmon-Jamell Fleming Is 'Key Match-Up'

Today when the Oklahoma Sooners take on the Oklahoma State Cowboys for all the marbles in the Big 12 (with Kansas State also involved, of course), all eyes will be on the outcome wondering what it will mean to the BCS standings. And within this contest, EESPN says one particular match-up stands out more than others: Justin Blackmon of OSU vs. Jamell Fleming of OU.

Blackmon is arguably the most dominant wide receiver in all of college football. He won the Biletnikoff Trophy last season as the best wideout in the country and he’s also a finalist this year with 103 catches, 1,241 yards and 15 touchdowns. Fleming, on the other hand, has 46 tackles and 1 interception on the season along with two forced fumbles. Over at ESPN, they highlight the duo:

Fleming has been the Sooners’ best cover corner this season and should draw Blackmon most of the time. The 6-foot-1, 215-pound Blackmon doesn’t have elite top-end speed but is a physical route-runner who displays above-average suddenness out of cuts. Fleming lacks upper-echelon movement skills but does possess enough short-area quickness to stay within range of Blackmon.

Fleming will face his toughest challenges when the ball is in the air and after the catch. Blackmon’s long arms provide him a wide catching radius, and combined with his strength, body control and strong hands, that makes him a one-on-one nightmare downfield. In addition, Blackmon is a physical runner with an effective straight-arm to break tackles and pick up yards after the catch. Two things will be crucial for Fleming. First, he must position himself well when the ball is in the air. Second, he must do a great job of breaking down and securing the tackle. If Fleming fails in either of these categories, it could result in the kind of big plays we’ve become accustomed to seeing from Blackmon.

Oklahoma State Predicted To Beat Oklahoma By ESPN

Will Harris over at ESPN lists the odds for the Oklahoma State Cowboys beating the Oklahoma Sooners as three points. He predicts it won’t even be that close. Instead, Harris has the Cowboys winning by 10 — 41-31 — in today’s match-up between the two Big 12 powers. He writes:

The Cowboys slipped up at Iowa State, but this has been one of the most dominant teams in the nation and still has a do-over of last year’s Bedlam battle in Stillwater to claim its first conference championship since the 1976 Big Eight title. Oklahoma limps into the game losing twice and having been outgained three times in its past five. The suddenly turnover-prone Sooners are getting torched by all decent passing teams and reeling from injuries to key players on both sides of the ball.

Everything about Oklahoma’s season suggests that it’s just not the Sooners’ year. And even with the blemish at Ames, everything about Oklahoma State’s recent rise to power and the season the Pokes have churned out suggests that it’s theirs. This is the best team in school history, and it’s not going to blow this one.
