Oklahoma State at Oklahoma: The Oklahoman's picks for Saturday's Bedlam game

BEDLAM PICKS — The Oklahoman's Bedlam coverage team explains its picks for OSU vs. OU.
FROM STAFF REPORTS Published: November 23, 2012

Here is a look at how The Oklahoman's coverage crew picked Saturday's game:


* OU 41, OSU 38: A classic in the making. I give the Sooners the nod because they're playing at home.


* OSU 38, OU 34: Seems like Cowboy coaches are more confident in their team than Sooner coaches are in theirs.

JASON KERSEY, OU beat writer

* OU 45, OSU 35: Oklahoma State runs the ball with success, but Landry Jones and the Sooner receivers have a big day and, like last week, find ways to score more points.


* OU 44, OSU 33: Damien Williams proves he's back and the state's best running back by rushing for three touchdowns.

RYAN ABER, OU recruiting

* OU 31, OSU 28: The Cowboys defense might be the best since Mike Gundy's arrival but the Sooners edge OSU at home.

GINA MIZELL, OSU beat writer

* OU 42, OSU 41: A wild shootout ends with a late Landry Jones touchdown pass to Kenny Stills. Yes, we've seen this script play out before.

JOHN HELSLEY, OSU beat writer

* OSU 31, OU 28: Joe Randle and Jeremy Smith reacquaint themselves with the Sooner secondary.

SCOTT WRIGHT, OSU recruiting

* OSU 35, OU 31: The Sooners haven't been great at home. Look for some creative scheming from OSU defensive coordinator Bill Young to keep OU off balance.

MIKE SHERMAN, Sports editor

* OSU 42, OU 38: OSU's front seven on defense is better for one of the few times in recent Bedlam history.
