No. 3 – Oklahoma 27, Oklahoma State 0, Nov. 28, 2009

The 2009 season was a very disappointing season for Oklahoma, and it started downhill in the very first game against BYU. Quarterback Sam Bradford and tight end Jermaine Gresham both bypassed the NFL Draft in 2009 to return for one more season at OU and one more shot at a national championship. Only, Gresham blew out his knee in preseason practice and was out for the entire season, and Bradford went down with a shoulder injury in the opening game vs. BYU and was never the same thereafter.

Going into its regular-season finale against Oklahoma State, the Sooners were just 6-5 and unranked, while the Cowboys came into that season’s Bedlam game as No. 12 in the nation and vying for a Big 12 championship. It was almost a predictable environment for a Bedlam Series game: one team ranked and the other just trying to finish out the season on a winning note. A scenario ripe and ready for an upset.

The Sooners, playing at home where they have always been a very difficult team to knock off, took control of this game from the very outset. DeMarco Murray ran for two touchdowns, and Ryan Broyles returned a punt 88 yards for a touchdown, as Oklahoma outgained the favored Cowboys 373 to 124 in posting a 27-0 shutout.

It was Oklahoma’s seventh consecutive victory over the Cowboys and capped off a very disappointing season on a happy note.
