It’s the last game of the regular season and we face our perennial rivals The Cowboys of Oklahoma State! It’s Bedlam Baby!!!! The game starts ar 5:00 pm this Saturday, November 30th and we will be at The Thirsty Lion – Tigard once again. Starting to feel like home there!
While we are yet again favored in this matchup by 13.5 points, we haven’t beat the spread in any of the last 5 games. And we have had to pull a couple of games out of the toilet to win. But “Winners Win”. Amirite???
We have 88 wins to their paltry 18 all time (I still don’t worry about those pesky 8 ties) but Bedlam can mean anything. Every team we have faced this year has come for us with guns a blazin’ and I don’t expect that OSU will be any different.
We have clinched a spot in the the Big 12 Championship game this year along with Baylor so we will get another game to get together this year.
For those of you watching the rest of the games to see where we end up, I hope you are rooting for Oregon to beat Utah and for LSU to beat Georgia this weekend. We need both to happen for our playoff hopes to stay alive. Even then it might be a tossup between us and Alabama for that coveted 4th spot. Here’s hoping for a little Sooner magic!!!
