Bedlam Surrounds the Rivalry as the Cowboys and Sooners meet for the 112th time

The Oklahoma Sooners and the Oklahoma State Cowboys meet for the 112th edition of Bedlam on Saturday at Boone Pickens Stadium. Fox Sports 1 will televise the game. Kick-off is set for 4 pm EST.

Bedlam maybe hasn’t reached instant-recognition status nationwide, YET. If Oklahoma and Oklahoma State keep playing at this level their rivalry is sure to keep gaining stature among the nations elite.

Bedlam was first used for the rowdiness involved in the teams’ wrestling duals. It was well, Bedlam, between teams and fans. Over the years the moniker became a thing in all their matchups. Naturally football escalated to the main attraction. Especially when the Cowboys became a regional, and at times a national, powerhouse.

Oklahoma owns a lopsided edge in the series at 85-19-7. Since the end of the Barry Switzer era, the Cowboys have improved their program in the Big 12 and nationally. The program has grown more competitive with the Sooners, if not superior.

Oddsmakers have the Cowboys favored by 1.5-points. The total is sitting at 76. The line opened with Oklahoma State favored by 3-points.

Cowboys Enter Bedlam Ranked 11th in CFP Rankings

Oklahoma State was a 50-39 winner in its last match on the road against the West Virginia Mountaineers. They covered the -7.5-point spread as favorites, while the total score of 89 sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

Mason Rudolph leads all of FBS with 2,866 passing yards. Rudolph’s 22 scoring passes rank No. 8 in the nation.

Oklahoma State’s 569.3 yards per game is 3rd in the Nation.

Cowboys coach Mike Gundy might be fine with a new face on the opposite sideline after going just 2-10 against Bob Stoops. This is Lincoln Riley’s first time on the sidelines as the the Head Honcho in this series.

Sooners Look to Keep Nations Top Offense in Sync

Last time out for Oklahoma, they were a 49-27 winner as they battled the Texas Tech Red Raiders at home. Oklahoma covered in the match as a -19.5-point favorite, while 76 combined points moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
