Nov. 27, 2010 – Oklahoma 47, Oklahoma State 41

This was one of the few Bedlam Series games in which a Big 12 championship was on the line and Oklahoma came into the contest as the underdog. Oklahoma State was playing at home and ranked 10th in the country. The Sooners (9-2, 5-2) were also ranked, but four spots lower than the Cowboys.

Oklahoma led 7-3 after one quarter and 24-17 at the half, but the real fireworks would not begin until the final 15 minutes.

Oklahoma State went 80 yards in 8 plays in the third quarter, the final 20 on a touchdown pass from Brandon Weeden to Josh Cooper, to pull even at 24 apiece.

The Sooners got things started in the fourth quarter with three successive field goals by Jimmy Stevens that moved OU out to a nine-point lead, 33-24, with around six minutes remaining in the game. That’s when things really got interesting.

A total of 31 points were scored over the final six minutes of the game, 28 of them in a span of 92 seconds, as the teams literally went back and forth putting touchdowns on the board. In the end, the nine points that the Sooners put up early in the quarter proved to be the deciding difference, with OU squeezing out a 47-41 victory.

Landry Jones set an Oklahoma record with 468 passing yards, including two long touchdown passes within 29 seconds of each other in the crazy fourth quarter.

With the win, Oklahoma claimed the division title in the South and advanced to the conference championship game to face Nebraska.
