In a series that has been dominated by the Oklahoma Sooners, this game was anything but a blowout. In fact, it looked like Oklahoma State might run away with a victory after jumping out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter. Landry Jones and Co. battled back from the early deficit to tie the game up at 24 going into halftime.The Sooners made big plays all afternoon that helped them to this huge Bedlam win. Trailing 38-30 early in the fourth quarter, WR Jalen Saunders returned a punt 81 yards for a touchdown. Oklahoma converted the two point conversion to tie the game with 14:36 remaining in the game. Oklahoma State countered four minutes later with J.W Walsh sprinting for a 2 yard touchdown run, making the score 45-38.On the final drive Oklahoma got the ball down to the four yard line before facing a fourth and goal, needing a touchdown to send the game into overtime. With four seconds remaining, backup QB Blake Bell cashed in his 24th career touchdown rush and sent Sooner fans into hysteria. In overtime, Oklahoma’s defense forced the Cowboys to kick a field goal on the opening possession. Then, RB Brennan Clay ended the game with an 18 yard run, pushing through several Oklahoma State defenders in the process.It was Oklahoma’s first lead of the day as they improved to 83-17-7 all time in the Bedlam rivalry.The GoodThe quarterback play of Oklahoma’s Landry Jones and Oklahoma State’s Clint Chelf was tremendous. Jones threw for over 500 yards for the second consecutive game while completing 46 of 71 passes, both school records. Chelf, who made his first road start, accounted for 253 yards through the air and 63 on the ground as he nearly did what only five quarterback’s had done in the last fifty years: lead an Oklahoma State team in to Norman and come away with a win. Landry Jones threw three touchdown passes to Chelf’s one, and both quarterbacks turned the ball over just once.The BadBoth defenses were awful at times during this game, allowing a combined 12 touchdowns and over 1000 yards of offense throughout the game. It could be argued that the struggles experienced by the defensive units had much to do with the offensive scheme s, but that would be more of an excuse than an explanation. The two teams combined to force just seven punts and neither team was able to hold the opposition scoreless for an entire quarter. However, in the fourth quarter and overtime, Oklahoma’s defense got the stops it needed and came away with the victory. The UglyOklahoma’s run game was absolutely atrocious in this one. Even with Landry Jones throwing the ball 71 times, the Sooners were still able to get away 30 rushing attempts. However, they converted that in to just 102 yards and one touchdown. This also speaks volumes to Oklahoma State’s lack of a pass defense, as Landry Jones was still able to get almost anything he wanted through the air.
