Wrestling: Notes on Bedlam

by Mike Sherman Modified: April 18, 2013 at 4:32 pm •  Published: February 20, 2008

Here are some notes on the Bedlam wrestling match, courtesy of OSU.

The Basics
  The No. 3 Oklahoma State wrestling team (16-2-1 overall) puts a cap on the 2008 regular season when it travels to Norman to face No. 17 Oklahoma at 7 p.m. Thursday in McCasland Fieldhouse.

Ticket Information
  A limited number of tickets remain for Thursday’s Bedlam Series dual at a cost of $10 for general admission. Contact the Oklahoma ticket office at (405) 325-2424 or toll-free (800) 456-GoOU.

The Most Lopsided Rivalry In College Sports
  Oklahoma State has a 100-win advantage in its all-time wrestling series with Oklahoma, making the Bedlam Series wrestling rivalry the most lopsided rivalry in all of college sports. No other school in the country claims a 100-win advantage over a single opponent in any sport.

Cowboys Look To Match Longest Streak In Series History
  Oklahoma State has won each of its last last 19 duals against Oklahoma and hasn’t lost to the Sooners since 1995. Should the Cowboys extend their winning streak over OU to 20, it would match the longest winning streak in the history of the Bedlam Series. OSU won 20 consecutive over Oklahoma from 1969 through 1979.
