After the Big 12 Conference lost Nebraska and Colorado and became a 10-team league, Oklahoma was force to play at Oklahoma State in back-to-back years.
This year's OU senior class will have played in Stillwater in three of the last four years after Saturday's game at Boone Pickens Stadium.
Senior cornerback Aaron Colvin said that's an advantage for OU.
“Being somewhere, you already kind of get a gist of what's going to happen, what's going on,” Colvin said. “So, personally, I know me and some other guys, we know what to expect. We know what we're going to get. They're going to be rowdy. This is for all the marbles for them. But we've played some tough games away so it won't be any different.”
KNIGHT, HAYS MEET AGAIN
Oklahoma quarterback Trevor Knight and his former high-school teammate, Austin Hays, are now on opposite sides of the Bedlam rivalry.
Hays is a sophomore receiver at Oklahoma State. He appeared in 10 games as a true freshman last year, recording 29 catches, 394 yards and two touchdowns, but has been injured for most of this season.
Knight said he and Hays saw each other back home in San Antonio over the Thanksgiving break.
I didn't talk to him about football, though,” Knight said. “It was good to see him.”
Knight, his twin brother — OU redshirt freshman tight end Connor Knight — and Hays all played together at San Antonio's Ronald Reagan High.
“He's been our buddy since we were in kindergarten,” Trevor Knight said. “It's nice to be pretty close.”
Senior safety Gabe Lynn, on the Sooners' 44-10 loss at OSU in 2011:
“It wasn't just bad; we got blown out. We definitely want to go up there and get a win. We don't want to come back like we did after that last trip. I just remember it was a cold and it was a bad game.”
