Bedlam could be a prelude to a rematch as #10 Oklahoma visits #7 Oklahoma State at 7:30 p.m. ET Saturday in a showdown for the Big 12 regular-season title at Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater.

Both teams are 10-1 overall and 7-1 in conference play.

Oklahoma State has already clinched a berth in the Big 12 Championship Game on Dec. 4 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Oklahoma would reach the title game for a rematch by beating the favored Cowboys on Saturday in a game televised by ABC.

Sooners Bounce Back

Oklahoma bounced back last week from its first loss of the season to beat Iowa State 28-21 at home.

Freshman quarterback Caleb Williams passed for a touchdown and ran 74 yards for a score, the longest play from scrimmage of the season for Oklahoma. However, he completed just 8 of 18 passes for 87 yards with an interception while rushing for 67 yards on 12 carries.

Kennedy Brooks lifted Oklahoma’s offense by rushing for 115 yards on 17 carries while helping solidify the Sooners’ hopes of winning a seventh straight conference title. He became the 11th player in school history to have 3,000 career rushing yards.

The Sooners needed to hold Iowa State at the end of the game after the Cyclones got the ball at their 14-yard line down 28-21 with two minutes left. Brock Purdy drove Iowa State to the Oklahoma 21 but was intercepted by Pat Fields with 15 seconds remaining.

The Oklahoma defense also came up big with nine seconds left in the first half. Lineman Jalen Redmond returned a fumble 42 yards for a touchdown to give the Sooners the lead for good at 14-7 after Purdy was hit by Key Lawrence.

Pokes Winning With Defense

Oklahoma State has one of the best defenses in the nation and that unit was at its best last Saturday in a 23-0 blanking of Texas Tech in Lubbock.

The Cowboys posted their first shutout in a conference game or on the road since 1995. Texas Tech, which had not been whitewashed since 1995, managed just 108 total yards and 25 came on a pass during the Red Raiders’ final drive.

Texas Tech managed just 31 yards on 28 plays in the first half. It lost yardage on nine snaps.

Oklahoma State is second in the nation the FBS in scoring defense, allowing 14.9 points a game, and third in total defense at 261.3. The Cowboys have surrendered only one offensive touchdown in their last four games.

Spencer Sanders threw a touchdown pass and ran for another score against Texas Tech and Tanner Brown kicked three field goals. Oklahoma State finished with 427 total yards.

Sanders threw for 237 yards on 19-of-38 passing. Tay Martin had seven receptions for 130 yards.

Oklahoma State’s lone Big 12 title came in 2011, the first season the conference went to 10 teams. However, there was no championship game that season as the Big 12 did not reinstate it until 2017.

Oklahoma vs Oklahoma State Prediction

History is on Oklahoma’s side in this game. The Sooner have won Bedlam six straight times and in 16 of the last 18 seasons.

However, Oklahoma State’s defense has been almost impenetrable during a four-game winning streak. Look for that unit to make the difference against the talented but inconsistent Williams.

  • The Pick: Oklahoma State -4.5 (-110)
