The Sooners look to stay alive in the Big 12 race against their rival Cowboys.
The No. 13 Oklahoma Sooners host the No. 21 Oklahoma State Cowboys on Saturday in the 107th edition of the Bedlam Series.
Oklahoma survived a 50-49 win over West Virginia to move to 8-2 on the season and stay alive for a Big 12 title. Those two losses have come to teams that are both currently ranked in the top six, but one of them is Kansas State. The Sooners need to win their last two and get another Kansas State loss to claim the conference title. Behind the arm of Landry Jones, Oklahoma's offense ranks 11th nationally, gaining 503 yards per game. The Sooners also boast the country's sixth-best pass efficiency defense.
At 7-3, Oklahoma State is still in a position to win ten or more games for the third straight year. Despite shuffling through three quarterbacks due to injury, the Cowboys still have the sixth-best passing game in the country, averaging 337 yards per game through the air. For the last three games, junior Clint Chelf has been at the helm of the Cowboys' offense, completing 61% of his passes for nine touchdowns and three interceptions.
Oklahoma leads the all-time series, 82-17-7, and last year's win for Oklahoma State was its first in nine seasons.
