#10 Oklahoma State Cowboys 49 vs #4 Baylor Bears 17
Big 12 Showdown
#4 Baylor Bears a team rolling over the competition averaging some 60+ points per game, an offense that couldn't be stopped, came into Stillwater and literally ran into a brick wall in the form of Pistol Pete and the Oklahoma State Cowboys defense.
The scoreboard told the story. As well as the Baylor Bears offensive has been this year they were just the opposite tonight.
I can't recall the last time I saw a running back stretch out and try to put the ball over the goal line only to have it knocked out of his hand for a fumble. Again in the red zone ready to score Baylor Bear center snaps the ball to the left side of the Baylor QB. Baylor's QB jumps on the ball. It looked like a hot potato the way it came out of his hands only to have a Cowboy and his Posse take the ball to the opposite end zone for 6 of Oklahoma State Cowboys 49 impressive points
The Baylor Bears will be on the road next week to face a TCU Football team that has struggled all season.
Baylor will try to get their impressive offense rolling again in what should be a warm up game, preparing for their final home game in a stadium that will be replaced in 2014, against a Texas Longhorn team that has been strong in Big 12 play
Oklahoma State will have a week off then host The Oklahoma Sooners in The Bedlam Series that dates back as far as 1904 in football. November 6, 1904 The Oklahoma Sooners beat The Oklahoma A&M, as they were originally called, in a very lopsided score 75-0
Oklahoma A&M became Oklahoma State in 1957.
Since the beginning of The Football Bedlam Series began in 1904 Oklahoma State has only beaten Oklahoma 17 times. They also tied 7 times. The Oklahoma Sooner have a very impressive record in The Bedlam Series of Football with a record of 85-17-7
The Baylor Bears have now lost all 10 games of the Big 12 Era played in Stillwater and haven't beaten Oklahoma State in Stillwater in 75 years!
History tends to repeat itself. The "Stillwater Jinx" that has haunted Baylor in Stillwater for 75 years tells me that Oklahoma State may be prime for their own Bedlam Jinxi n a series that in 109 years The Oklahoma Sooners have dominated 85 of the 109 games played.
