Oklahoma tops No. 24 Oklahoma State becomes bowl eligible

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma wasn’t in its usual position of contending for the Big 12 title and a berth in the College Football Playoff.

But the Sooners still beat Bedlam.

Dillon Gabriel passed for two touchdowns and ran for another and Oklahoma defeated No. 24 Oklahoma State 28-13 on Saturday night.

The matchup could be one of the last in the rivalry with the two teams as members of the Big 12. Oklahoma is scheduled to leave for the Southeastern Conference in the coming years.

“Who knows how many more times, if at all, we’ll play,” Oklahoma coach Brent Venables said. “I haven’t seen next year’s schedules yet, and you know, new teams are coming (joining the Big 12). So to have this trophy now means a lot to these players.”

Gabriel passed for 259 yards and ran for 30. Eric Gray ran for 90 yards and a touchdown and Drake Stoops had a game-high six catches for 89 yards for the Sooners (6-5, 3-5 Big 12 ), which jumped. to a 28-0 lead in the first quarter and held on to become bowl eligible.
