Battle For the Big 12: Sooners vs Cowboys

Not only is the Bedlam Bell on the line when Oklahoma and Oklahoma State meet, but so too is the Big 12 crown. The Sooners have been the team to beat in the Big 12 from the early-to-late 2000’s, which has led Oklahoma to go 7-3 SU and ATS in their past 10 against Oklahoma State.

Shark Bites
  • Oklahoma State is 1-7 in their last eight games in Week 13.
  • Oklahoma is 11-2 SU in their last 14 following an ATS loss.
  • Samaje Perine rushed for 151 yards and two touchdowns against the Cowboys last season.

There may not be a hotter team in college football than the Sooners. Oklahoma is coming off two wins against teams inside the top 20, which culminated in a last second defensive stop against TCU last week. Since their lone loss to Texas, Oklahoma has averaged 51 points and 604.3 offensive yards per game.

The offensive dominance has much to do with the emergence of Baker Mayfield. The two-time walk-on is now a legitimate Heisman candidate as he has completed 68.7 percent of his passes for 33 touchdowns and just five interceptions this season. Mayfield exited Oklahoma’s win over TCU last week with a concussion, but did pass the concussion protocols after the game.

Oklahoma State squandered a massive opportunity with a loss against Baylor last week and could not capitalize after Jarrett Stidham was injured and replaced with third-stringer quarterback Chris Johnson.

The dual quarterback system the Cowboys have operated this season with Mason Rudolph and J.W. Walsh being near unstoppable at times. The two signal-callers have combined for 32 passing touchdowns and eight interceptions with another 12 rushing touchdowns.
