OU coach Bob Stoops said Tuesday receiver Jaz Reynolds, who was suspended for the Iowa State game for violating team rules, will play against the Cowboys. Kenny Stills is also a big weapon, hauling in 52 catches for 755 yards and eight touchdowns.

Last season, it was Blackmon who was not healthy for Bedlam. He battled an ankle injury but still caught eight passes for 105 yards and a touchdown.

BLATNICK LOOKS FORWARD TO SENIOR DAY

Blatnick has had quite the journey during his OSU career.

Last August, he was the guy on the StairMaster every practice, serving his punishment after pleading guilty on charges of misdemeanor assault and battery following a bar fight. Today, he's one of the top defensive ends in the Big 12, tying for fourth in the conference with seven sacks.

And before Saturday's game, he will be honored as part of the Senior Night ceremonies before trying to help the Cowboys clinch a Big 12 title in his final season.

“Every time I think about it, I'm like, ‘Wow, that just flew by,'” Blatnick said. “It's nice, but I'm not ready to sit back and look on it just yet. It's not over. Until then, it's just Bedlam, Bedlam, Bedlam. That's all I've got on my mind.”

HOTTEST TICKET AROUND

According to the leading secondary ticket market aggregator, TiqIQ, a ticket to Bedlam is the most valuable college football ticket available this weekend.

The average price for a ticket to the OSU-OU game in Stillwater is $356.92, which is higher than the championship games for the SEC ($296.12), ACC ($180.34), Conference USA ($136.16), Big Ten ($100.64) and Pac-12 ($74.56).

Bedlam still tops all those conference title games even after the ticket price dropped more than 51 percent following OSU's loss to Iowa State.
