Despite opportunities, Oklahoma comes up just short of beatng the Cowboys in the final game of the Bedlam series.

After an emotional game of ups and downs, the Cowboys beat Oklahoma 27-24 to win Bedlam.

Fast starts by both offenses put this game at 7-7, but it quickly became a defensive battle.  The Sooners made the first stop of the game, but Oklahoma State capitalized off of a Javonte Barnes fumble that stopped a 55-yard drive. The Cowboys took the momentum and quickly found themselves up 17-7, but the Sooners rallied to make it 14-17 into the half.

The second half was more defensive, as Oklahoma put up points on two of their two of their seven-drives. As for the Sooner defense, they gave up zero points in the third.

The Sooners’ defense got off the field early in the fourth after an Ollie Gordon interception (yes, you read that right) and it seemed like the Sooners had control of the game. After pinning Oklahoma State at their own three-yard line, the Cowboys converted a crucial 3rd-and-5 via a questionable defensive pass interference call. The Cowboys went on to score, taking the lead 24-21 with just under 8:00 left.

Neither defense allowed a touchdown for the rest of the game, with Oklahoma State going on to win 27-24 in the “final” Bedlam.

What’s next for the Sooners?

They head back to Norman and hope to bounce-back versus West Virginia. As for their Big 12 Championship Game hopes, they are looking grim. After such a hot start to the season, that seems unimaginable, but after back-to-back losses, Oklahoma will find themselves currently on the outside looking in
