    Oklahoma Sooners - 2009


    Heading into Bedlam, one school had a record of 10-1, two national covers on sports illustrated, and in the drivers seat for a BCS bid. That one school had better offensive stats and was a unanimous pick to win the game by Corso & Herbstreet. What's surprising is that school was the Oklahoma State Cowboys.

    The Oklahoma Sooners, thanks to two early losses, had their team labeled as a disappointment and had to sit back and watch their state rival become the media darling and all attention and accolades that come along with it.

    But, the Sooners had their chance to make any final statement of state supremacy on the field. And that is exactly what happened on Saturday. From the initial whistle, the Sooners hit the Cowboys in the mouth with an aggressive defense and a punishing run attack.

    Scoring on its first three possessions and not giving up a single first down on defense, the Sooners raced out to a 21-0 lead. Oklahoma State did manage to put together a scoring drive just before half to trail 21-7. But the Sooners were just getting started. The power run game wore down the Cowboy defense in the second half and opened the passing lanes for Sam Bradford leading the attack to put up 55 points. Playing his last game as a Sooner, Jermaine Gresham set a single game school record of 13 pass receptions. The talented TE is arguably the greatest of all time to play for the Sooners and is projected as a top 10 NFL draft pick.

    The win gives the Sooners a record of 10-2 with a chance at BCS bid depending on the outcome of the Big 12 championship game.​
