The Bedlam Series, presented by The Oklahoman and Oklahoma Farm Bureau Insurance, will have even higher stakes this season as a berth in the Big 12 Championship is on the line for the Sooners. 

After going 2-2-1 in the last five games, Oklahoma needs one more win to secure the eighth and final seed in next week's Big 12 Championship in San Antonio.  On the other side of the ball, Oklahoma State needs a win to secure the regular season conference title.

The contest marks the fifth time in the last eight years that one of the rivals will be eliminated from the postseason with a loss.  Click here to learn more about Bedlam's postseason implications over the years.

The 2008 seniors, Katie Corbitt and Traci Dickenson, will be honored prior to the game on Friday. There will also be a Halloween costume contest in which OU Fans of all ages are encouraged to come dressed up for the chance to win prizes.  The prizes include OU memorabilia, a free Sooner Kids Club membership, gift cards and more. In addition, kids can trick or treat before the game and the players and coaches will be available to sign autographs following the game.
