2016 Oklahoma Sooners Football Countdown To Kickoff | 68 days!

Rob Ferguson-USA TODAY Sports

Last season, the Oklahoma Sooners clinched their ninth Big XII Championship with a 58-23 win over the Oklahoma State Cowboys in late November. While an electric return game and high powered offense put points on the board for the crimson and cream, the folks from Stillwater opted to rotate quarterbacks hoping for an answer.

During the outing, Samaje Perine received two carries through the first three drives. However, the second carry of the night for the young running back resulted in a 68-yard touchdown run. Ultimately, the Sooners took the lead 14-10 on the score and never looked back.

In the 110th meeting between the two teams, Oklahoma once again reigned victorious claiming the Bedlam crown on the road. Yet, Perine makes up half of what some consider to be the best backfield in the nation. This upcoming season, they'll return to Norman looking to defend the claim and earn a spot in the College Football Playoff for the second consecutive year.
