When: Saturday, December 3 – 12:30 p.m. ET
Where: Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium, Norman, OK
For the 2nd straight year the bedlam game will decide the big 12 championship, but starting next year the conference has agreed to play a title game at AT&T stadium in Dallas Texas. The Sooners started the year 1-2 and then since have went on a 8 game winning streak. The Cowboys record is 9-2 suffering their loses to Central Michigan and Baylor. Since the Baylor loss to the Cowboys, they have went on a 7 game win streak.
Last year the Sooners went down to Stillwater for a winner-takes-all big 12 championship game and came out on top 58-23. This year the Cowboys look to go down to Norman and knock off the number 9 Sooners.
What to know about the Sooners
Baker Mayfield and Dede Westbrook have been one of the best pitch and catch duos in the nation. Just as much as we talk about the pass attack the Sooners have a very good run game with Samaje Perine and Joe Mixon. This Sooners offense is averaging more than 45 points per game. The Sooner have a 8 game wining streak trying to make it 9 to sneak into the college football playoffs.
What to know about the Cowboys
The Cowboys are one of the most underrated teams in the nation. The Cowboys are coming off their best game of 2016 beating TCU 31-6 in Fort Worth. Mason Rudolph has had a great year without the hype, throwing for 25 touchdowns and only 4 picks. One of the keys of the game is free safety Jordan Sterns who will most likely be guarding Dede Westbrook.
Who has the edge
Offense: Oklahoma – These teams are fairly even on the offensive end but the back field is the difference in this category.
Defense: Oklahoma State – The Sooners defense has struggled with the long ball and will see a lot of it this weekend with James Washington and Jalen McCleskey.
