Note: This game was played as an exhibition. This is not the same Bedlam game as the Oklahoma State win in the simulated season.

Football coaches stress the mental game: eliminate turnovers, limit penalties and capitalize on mistakes.

The same could be said for The Oklahoman's simulation of Oklahoma vs. Oklahoma State in EA Sports' NCAA Football 10, played by sports staffer Jason Kersey (OU) and intern Ryan Stewart (OSU) on the XBOX 360.

Kersey used two interceptions by OU linebacker Travis Lewis and capitalized on two roughing-the-passer penalties to beat Stewart, 24-16, in what has become an annual event for The Oklahoman sports department.

Stewart rallied the Cowboys from a 21-10 deficit to a 21-16 score with 3:29 left in the game after a failed two-point conversion. Justin Gent intercepted Sam Bradford two minutes later to give the Cowboys the momentum on their own 48-yard line, but Lewis came through in the clutch and picked off a Zac Robinson pass after he was hit hard in the backfield.

"Travis Lewis really came to play today," said Kersey, who put his stamp on the game with an unnecessary field goal with one second left. "OSU is a great team and I wish them the best of luck in the Holiday Bowl this year."
