This week’s Oklahoma-Oklahoma State game may be anti-climactic compared to recent years. Nonetheless, this year’s edition of the Bedlam Series looks to be very entertaining – albeit predictable.
ESPN polled its analysts about the outcome of the game and the 16 writers were unanimous: Oklahoma will win the game. The only discrepancy was the margin of victory, which ranged from four points to four touchdowns.
The 8-1 Sooners are a juggernaut on offense whose only blemish is a narrow loss to Texas. They have scored at least 28 points in every game, and at least 50 points five times.
Meanwhile, the 5-4 Cowboys have followed up every win over a ranked team with a loss. They beat No. 17 Boise State in September, only to lose to Texas Tech the next week. Two weeks ago they beat No. 6 Texas, only to lose to Baylor the week after.
The Bedlam Series has been historically one-sided. Oklahoma have 87 wins in 108 games between the two.
Last year, the two teams combined for 114 points in a 62-52 win for the Sooners.
The last time Oklahoma State won the rivalry game was December 6, 2014.
