Sooners win Bedlam battle

STILLWATER — Any questions regarding the top team in Oklahoma were answered Saturday afternoon, as the Sooners came out on top against Oklahoma State 33-24 in Stillwater in a frenzied ending that fit the “Bedlam” description.

A 66-yard drive with a minute and a half on the clock was capped by a seven yard pass from Blake Bell – the third Sooner quarterback to play in the game after Trevor Knight started – to Jalen Saunders to put OU up 27-24 and essentially win them the game. The excitement was brought to an official end when Eric Stryker ran in a three-yard fumble return as the Cowboys scrambled through a series of laterals and backwards passes to keep a dim hope of scoring alive.

Few would blame them for the madness, since it was only two offensive series before that they marched down to take the lead. Desmond Roland, who rushed for 144 yards, capped a seven play drive with his third touchdown of the game to light the way to their second Big 12 title in three years and an automatic bid for a BCS Bowl. As quick as it opened, that door was slammed as time expired.

“I’m certainly not disappointed in them,” OSU head coach Mike Gundy said. “I’m just disappointed for them, because they’ve been a really good group for us. Unfortunately, we just came up a little big short today.”

The most crucial call of the game came with two minutes left in the third quarter. Faced with a fourth down, the Sooners lined up to reduce the lead to four with a Michael Hunnicutt field goal. Holder Grant Bothun suddenly scrambled into the corner on the fake, where he passed it to the kicker Hunnicut for an eight yard touchdown to tie the game.

“Of course, everybody was charged up,” OU head coach Bob Stoops said. “Instead of a field goal, you tie it up. It’s a big boost.”
