Previewing Oklahoma State - A Look Back At The Last Time They Played The Sooners

New, 6 comments

With a 9-2 record going into last season's Bedlam football game, Oklahoma State was a win shy of having a 10 win season and most likely their first ever bid to play in a BCS bowl game. By the end of they game they were looking at a scoreboard that read 27-0 in favor of the Sooners with all of their hopes dashed.

Not only did the Cowboys not score but they only managed 109 total net yards and 6 first downs against Oklahoma's defense. The Sooners held OSU to 0-14 on third downs and an average of 2.1 yards per offensive snap. Jeremy Beal led the charge for Oklahoma's defense with 10 tackles, two of them being for loss. 

Offensively the Sooners weren't spectacular but they were good enough to get the job done. Landry Jones completed 54% of his passes for 224 yards. DeMarco Murray scored twice while rushing for 72 yards on 13 carries (5.5 YPC Average). Possibly the most amazing thing about Oklahoma's offensive performance was that earlier in the week Trent Williams suffered a concussion and became Oklahoma's fourth starting offensive lineman to no be able to participate in the game. With a makeshift line the Sooner offense was able to pile up 367 total net yards and an average of 4.4 yards per play. 

The player of the day undoubtedly was Ryan Broyles who racked up 316 all-purpose yards and scored on an 87 yard punt return.
