@ #9 Oklahoma Sooners (9-2)


The line for this is game is Oklahoma by 11 points.

Bedlam takes on a larger meaning with the Big 12 championship at stake, though both Oklahoma and Oklahoma State will need a win and plenty of chaos ahead of them in order to sneak into a College Football Playoff spot. The seventh-ranked Sooners attempt to polish off an undefeated conference slate and add another top-10 win to their resume when they host rival 10th-ranked Oklahoma State on Saturday.

The Cowboys were bidding for a spot in the Playoff last season before dropping their final two regular season games, including a 58-23 home loss to the Sooners.  Quarterback Mason Rudolph was hobbled by a foot injury and only available on a limited basis in last season’s meeting but is fully healthy now and enters the weekend second in the Big 12 in passing yards (3,591) and third in TD passes (25).

Ahead of Rudolph in TD passes in the Big 12 is Sooners quarterback Baker Mayfield, who owns 35 scoring passes along with six rushing TDs and guides an offense averaging 49 points in conference play. Mayfield ran for a pair of TDs in a 56-28 triumph at West Virginia last week as Oklahoma piled up 316 yards on the ground, with Samaje Perine (160 yards, two TDs) and Joe Mixon (147 yards, one TD) leading the way.

Oklahoma WR Dede Washington leads the Big 12 in receiving yards (1,354) and receiving TDs (15).

Oklahoma State WR James Washington is second in the conference in receiving yards (1,159) and fourth in receiving TDs (nine).

The road team took each of the last three in the series.
