We Won!

I'm so proud of the Cowboys!
They are Big 12 Champions!

From KTUL News Channel 8 website

Stillwater, Oklahoma. . .Third-ranked Oklahoma State dominated No. 10 Oklahoma in a Bedlam that was never close. The Cowboys made a statement, blowing out their rivals 44-10 Saturday night in Stillwater.

The win not only gives the Cowboys bragging rights for Bedlam, it gives the Pokes their first outright conference title.

OSU (11-1) rushed for 254 yards while at the same time, the defense forced five turnovers and limited the Sooners to just three points until late in the fourth quarter, when back-up quarterback Blake Bell scored on a 28-yard run.

Joseph Randle and Jeremy Smith each had two touchdowns on the ground. The defense also got into the scoring column when Richetti Jones scooped up a fumble by OU's Landry Jones and took it five yards to paydirt.

All week, Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy refrained from stumping for his team when it comes to the national championship game. But, that wasn't the case Saturday night.

"I think people have to decide whether they want to see a 9-6 game or a 39-36 game. And I think this is the opportunity for people to find out how good the defense is in the SEC. We'd love to have that challenge. I think our defense is better than what other people say. So, last week I said Alabama should be there. There's no question Oklahoma State should be number two right now, no question."

We'll have to wait to find that out. The final BCS rankings will be released Sunday evening.
