NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - The Sooners had a defensive meltdown of historic proportions last week in a 50-49 win at West Virginia and it took a record-setting performance by quarterback Landry Jones to bail them out.
On Saturday, No. 14 Oklahoma (8-2, 6-1 Big 12) will have to deal with an Oklahoma State squad that uses the same offensive philosophy as West Virginia's Dana Holgorsen, who was the Cowboys' offensive coordinator for a year before becoming the Mountaineers' head coach.
No. 22 Oklahoma State (7-3, 5-2) has the conference's top running back in Joseph Randle and ranks third in the Bowl Subdivision in total offense at 553.7 yards per game. Seeing how the Sooners gave up 344 yards rushing to West Virginia's Tavon Austin, there is cause for concern in the Oklahoma camp entering the annual Bedlam showdown Saturday.
