OU Wrestling certainly did their part to kick off Bedlam week pulling off an improbable come-from-behind victory Sunday afternoon in a raucous McCasland Fieldhouse.
It was OU's first win over Oklahoma State since 2008.
The Sooners trailed 15-3 in the dual meet with four matches remaining and would go on to win all of them, including a major decision which made the comeback possible.
Oklahoma head coach Mark Cody was understandably excited after the thrilling victory.
"Getting upset at the two lighter weights, I was concerned, but I wasn't really feeling like we were completely out of it," said OU coach Mark Cody. "Of course, it doesn't matter how I feel, it matters how the guys going out there to wrestle for you feel. Our last four guys just think they can win. That's there whole attitude, and that's what it came down to. They're doing a lot of things right, and it showed today."
Cody, whose team defeated OSU for the first time in their past 10 meetings, credited the crowd with giving the Sooners a boost in the comeback win.
"Going forward, this dual helps (the program) a lot," Cody said. "There's still a lot of areas we have to improve on, and that includes keeping fans in the seats every dual meet. It means a lot to our guys. That crowd really had a lot to do with us winning today." - The Oklahoman
On this Sunday, Bedlam more than lived up to its name.
