Tyler Caldwell will get to experience both sides of Bedlam wrestling. The two-time All-American has transferred to Oklahoma State from Oklahoma.

Caldwell wrestled at 165 pounds as a freshman and sophomore for OU, finishing as NCAA runner-up in 2011 and in fifth place in 2010. He will seek immediate eligibility after taking an Olympic redshirt year in 2011-12. Caldwell has potentially two years of eligibility remaining.

Caldwell reached the semifinals of the 74 kilogram bracket at the 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials. The Wichita, Kan., native was a four-time state champion for Goddard High School and still holds the state record for career falls at 125.

OU CLOSER TO BIG 12 TITLE

The Oklahoma softball team is a win short of an outright Big 12 championship. The Sooners moved closer Friday with a 10-0 rout of Iowa State in Ames, Iowa. An OU win in Saturday's 2 p.m. game and the Sooners will eliminate Missouri from title contention.

OU (43-8 overall, 17-5 Big 12) hit at least three homers in a game for the 12th time this season. Lauren Chamberlain, Javen Henson and Georgia Casey homered; Chamberlain, a freshman, has 23 this season. Oklahoma has 81 homers for the season, which is four shy of tying the single-season school record set by the 2000 national championship team.

Iowa State (14-37, 2-20) managed just two hits against pitcher Keilani Ricketts. She struck out 10 for the 19th time this season.

TIGERS NO-HIT COWGIRLS

Missouri tried to keep pace with Oklahoma for the Big 12 championship, getting a no-hitter from Chelsea Thomas in a 4-0 victory over Oklahoma State in Columbia. Thomas walked two and struck out 12 in seven innings. Lindsey Muller had a two-run homer in the second inning. The Tigers (41-12 overall, 15-7 Big 12) added two runs in the sixth inning against OSU pitcher Simone Freeman.

OSU (25-24, 8-14) and Missouri play again 2 p.m. Saturday.

OSU TRIMS BRAVES

Andrew Heaney pitched another solid game Friday, leading Oklahoma State to a 3-2 baseball win over Alcorn State (Miss.) at Reynolds Stadium in Stillwater. The former Putnam City star gave up an earned run and three hits. Heaney (7-1) struck out 11 while throwing all nine innings.
