Cowboys motivated to face Bedlam rival Oklahoma ZACH HAKE EDITOR-IN-CHIEF @ ZACH_HAKE

Any time the Cowboys prepare to face their instate rival from Norman, there’s something extra on the line. Saturday’s game between the Oklahoma State and Oklahoma football teams is the 113th episode of the Bedlam series; a series filled with thrilling upsets, eye-catching highlights, crushing blowouts and everything in between. The Sooners have dominated OSU in the rivalry, which dates back to Nov. 6, 1904, when OU defeated then-Oklahoma A&M 75-0 in Guthrie. The Sooners lead the series 87-18-7, and the latest Cowboy victory was in 2014 when OSU won 38-35 in overtime in Norman. Sophomore receiver Tylan Wallace, a native of Fort Worth, Texas, said he knew of the history between the schools long before he arrived in Stillwater. “It’s probably one of the best rivalries in the country,” Wallace said. “It’s real crazy. Every game is always wild, and it’s usually a close game every year. I feel like it’s just going to be a battle out there.” Although the Cowboys’ 5-4 record, which included four conference losses, might not have been what they had intended, Wallace said he’s eager to see his teammates perform. “I want to see if our FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2018

team can come together as a whole and just fight,” Wallace said. “Even though the season didn’t go the way we planned it to, I want to see if we can go out there and just fight.” The Sooners sit atop the conference standings, boasting an 8-1 record and coming off a 51-46 victory in classic Big 12-shootout style against Texas Tech in Lubbock, Texas. Kyler Murray, OU’s explosive dual-threat signal caller, has multiple weapons and targets on offense, including running back Trey Sermon and receivers Marquise Brown and CeeDee Lamb. OSU coach Mike Gundy has beaten OU twice since he started as head coach in 2005, and he said Bedlam weekend is a special one for everyone. “Everybody wears orange or red this week,” Gundy said. “It’s a big game. I think that works to our benefit. I know they will be riled up, too. They will be excited to play in this game. They are going to prepare and work their butt off.” The rivalry between OSU and OU is often a statewide quest for bragging rights, indeterminate of the sport played. The Cowboys celebrate beating the Sooners, and the Sooners celebrate beating the Cowboys. For Tyron Johnson, a redshirt junior receiver who transferred from LSU after his freshman year in


Oklahoma State linebacker Calvin Bundage tackles Oklahoma running back Rodney Anderson in Boone Pickens Stadium.

2015, the Bedlam rivalry is reminiscent of the one he witnessed between LSU and Alabama. The Southeastern Conference has numerous rivalries among its teams, but the Crimson Tide and Tigers have played every year since 1964. Alabama leads the series 52-25-5, and the Crimson Tide’s dominance was on full display Nov. 3 when they blanked the Tigers 29-0 in Death Valley. Johnson said despite having just jumped into the Bedlam rivalry, he knows how much it means to football fans and players in the state, especially when it comes to bragging rights. Although it’s easy to get swept into the drama and talk between OSU and OU players, Johnson

said he knows how serious the preparation is for this game. “If you have to be motivated to play in this game, I don’t think you should be playing football,” Johnson said. “It’s probably one of the biggest games on our schedule … If anyone has to motivate you, you shouldn’t be playing this sport.” Enoch Smith Jr., a redshirt senior defensive tackle, is another Cowboy who has played in a longstanding rivalry elsewhere. Smith redshirted at Michigan State in 2014 but transferred after 2015 to Kennedy-King College in Chicago, where he spent the 2016-2017 academic year before arriving in Stillwater. Smith said the bad blood between OSU and


OU reminds him of the in-state battles between MSU and the University of Michigan. “It’s pure hatred, and I like that,” Smith said. “Now that we’re the underdogs, I feel like we have that chip on our shoulder, and if we come out and do what we need to do Saturday, we can shock the world, just like we did against Texas.” As Saturday draws closer and the Bedlam atmosphere intensifies, one thing is certain: both teams have more than enough to prove. The Sooners will likely use this game and the next against Kansas to build momentum before traveling to Morgantown, West Virginia, to face the Mountaineers on Nov. 23. The Cowboys are fight-

ing to extend their season. OSU is one victory away from bowl eligibility, and after suffering a last-minute defeat in Waco, Texas, to the Bears last week, the Bedlam matchup could serve as an opportunity to play spoiler in the race for a Big 12 championship. “We have all the motivation we need,” Smith said. “We win one more game, we can extend our season, so I don’t feel like there’s any extra motivation that we do need. If you do, I feel like you’re on the wrong team, and you don’t need to be associated with us right now.” Zach Hake is a multimedia journalism senior from The Woodlands, Texas.

The Best Warrior competition is made up of some of the best soldiers in the Army, based on leadership, physical fitness and knowledge of weapon systems and rank structures. The multiday competition assesses each competitor’s skills in categories including physical fitness, land navigation and other warrior tasks such as assessing a casualty or throwing a grenade.

Nov. 29

Widman started competing in Best Warrior competitions at his company’s level in Stillwater. After winning there, he continued on to state, then regionals and was eventually selected to compete internationally against other NATO troops. Widman recently represented the United States and Oklahoma in England.

Nov. 30

“I was super excited when they told me I would get to go to England,” said Widman. After over a week in Liverpool, the United States’ team made up of four Oklahomans came home with gold. “It was awesome; I’d love to do it again,” Widman said. Widman, originally from Edmond, Oklahoma, found his passion for the military through his father and grandfather and their service in the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy, respectfully. He began his own military career in OSU’s ROTC as a freshman and was quickly recruited by the Oklahoma National Guard after his first semester.
