On a cold, chilly afternoon in Stillwater, a football rivalry called Bedlam was just that and possibly more. With 19 seconds left, junior Blake Bell connected with senior Jalen Saunders, and the No. 17 Oklahoma Sooners upset Big 12-title and BCS-hopeful No. 6 Oklahoma State 33-24 on Dec. 7. After the Sooners took a 20-17 lead, the Cowboys quickly drove down the field and scored the go-ahead touchdown with 1:46 left to play. Junior Desmond Roland scored his second of his two touchdowns from the 1-yard line. Roland finished with a game-high 144 yards on 21 carries. He also added a receiving touchdown. Bell and the Sooners would start the game-winning drive on their own 34 and with one timeout. Oklahoma didn’t run the ball once on the drive, passing it on all eight plays, including a reception from Saunders and senior Brennan Clay, the latter giving the Sooners 1st-and-goal with 24 seconds left before Bell found Saunders in the back of the end zone near the right sideline to give the Sooners their 84th Bedlam win in 108 meetings. The Cowboys had one last chance with 14 seconds left, but failed on their final play, trying to lateral it which turned out to be a fumble recovery in the end zone by the Sooners for the icing on the cake. Bedlam was tied at 10 entering the break. Freshman Trevor Knight started the game, ran the ball effectively, but was forced out late in the first half. Sophomore Kendal Thompson started the second half for Oklahoma, but threw an interception on the first play. Thompson finished with 17 yards on 2-of-9 passing. On the ensuing Cowboys drive, senior Clint Chelf led a 7-play, 82-yard drive in 1:32, capped off with a 15-yard touchdown pass to Roland, to put OSU ahead 17-10. Thompson and Saunders would lead the Sooners down field on their next drive before Bell came in to throw a strike to senior tight end Brannon Green, but after Green caught the ball in the end zone, he was immediately smacked by a defender which jarred the ball loose. Green was in the back of the end zone and looked down to get his feet in, never seeing the defender. Bob Stoops elected to kick the field goal, only to fake it as freshman place holder Grant Bothun tossed an 8-yard score to senior kicker Michael Hunnicutt to tie the game up with 2:35 left in the third. The Cowboys got on the board first with Roland’s first score with four minutes left in the opening quarter. OSU was pinned at its own 1-yard line on its second and third drives, before the latter resulted in Roland’s TD that capped off 99 yards in 10 plays and 3:49 of game time. A three-and-out on the Cowboys’ next drive resulted in a 64-yard punt return for a touchdown by Saunders to tie the game at 7 late in the first quarter. Along with the return and final touchdown, Saunders finished with 39 receiving yards on five receptions. The Sooners wiped out any hope for a BCS bowl or conference title for the Cowboys. All OSU had to do was win and it would likely see the Fiesta Bowl. A loss means that the winner of the Baylor/Texas game will be the outright Big 12 champ and headed to the BCS. OU still has an outside chance for a BCS at-large bid, but it seems unlikely. Both teams end the regular season 10-2 and 7-2 in the conference. Stoops is 12-3 against the Cowboys in his 15 years at OU. After a 2-2 start, Stoops has won 10 of the last 11 matchups.
