On Saturday September 19th the Sooners will host Tulsa in an in-state rivalry game that dates back to 1914. Although OU and Tulsa haven't played as frequently as the Sooners and Cowboys have in the Bedlam series, the rivalry with the Golden Hurricane has produced it's fair share of upsets, stressful moments, and downright blowouts. One of those blowouts occurred in the 2007 season when Oklahoma traveled to Tulsa and romped their way to a 62-21 win.
Oklahoma's defense held Tulsa to just 1.2 yards per carry, forced six Golden Hurricane punts and picked off quarterback Paul Smith twice while also sacking him five times.
Offensively Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford completed 16-of-22 passes, with one pick, for 244 yards and three scores. It was on the ground however where the Sooners did most of their damage. As a team OU rushed for 285 yards and five scores with Allen Patrick carrying the ball 19 times for 150 yards (7.6 YPC) and 2 touchdowns.
Oklahoma is 19-7-1 all-time against Tulsa and has only lost once since 1979. The Sooners are currently riding an 8-game winning streak against the Golden Hurricane that dates back to the 2001 season.
