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.
