Oklahoma is one-game deep into its conference schedule with some of its toughest games still ahead.
The Sooners host an undefeated TCU team on Nov. 11 and West Virginia on Nov. 25. The Frogs look to give Oklahoma a second opportunity for another top-10 win, but Oklahoma’s biggest remaining game is still Bedlam, according to ESPN’s Jake Trotter.
“Even though a home bout with TCU will loom afterward, Bedlam is still the biggest game left for the Sooners,” Trotter wrote. “A win in Stillwater [on Nov. 4] will go a long way toward ensuring Oklahoma will be in the Big 12 title game and can continue making a push for a second trip to the College Football Playoff.”
The game will be crucial to the Sooners’ résumé that includes a win over Ohio State in Columbus, Ohio. The rest of their competition hasn’t been the best, however, with Baylor winless this season and UTEP and Tulane being who they are.
Bedlam is equally important to Oklahoma State, who fell to the TCU Horned Frogs on Sept. 23. The loss ended the Cowboys’ hopes for a perfect year, but a Big 12 title isn’t out of the question yet for Mike Gundy’s group.
Bedlam might not exactly be what it was hyped up to be in the preseason, but it’ll still have plenty of meaning as the Sooners and Cowboys fight for a conference crown and coach Lincoln Riley tries to navigate his program back to the College Football Playoff.
