On Saturday, the Sooners scored a big win over Oklahoma State.. It was Brent Venables’ first victory over an opponent and the first in the Bedlam series for a freshman head coach.
With this victory, the Sooners earned the right to participate in the draw and maintained their postseason streak, which began in 1998.
After the Oklahoma offense scored 28 points in the first quarter, they fell silent, but the Sooners defense had one of their best games of the season. Their performance, which included four interceptions and six sacks, gave an idea of what the Oklahoma Sooners could do under Brent Venables.
After winning at Bedlam in Oklahoma Brent Venables was named to the CBS Sports Week 12 “winners” list..
Perhaps no one in college football needed a win more than the Venables. The Sooners had already set their first conference losing record since 1998 and the most regular season losing streak since 2009, but the Bedlam winning streak returned after the Sooners thrashed Oklahoma State 28–13. Oklahoma unleashed some demons in the first quarter, taking a 28-0 lead they will never give up. Things got a little more complicated later on when the Sooners offense completely collapsed, but the advantage was big enough for the Venable Sooners to take the win and go into the bowl. There are plenty of issues to work out, but Oklahoma will happily take the state championship trophy in what has otherwise been a miserable season. – Shehan Jeyaraja, CBS Sports
