Saved by the Bell: Oklahoma Upends Oklahoma State

Bell completed 10-of-16 passes, for 140 yards and what proved to be the game-winning touchdown with 19 seconds left in the game, as No. 17 Oklahoma upended No. 6 Oklahoma State 33-24 Saturday.

The loss ruins the Cowboys (10-2, 7-2 Big 12) chance at winning the Big 12 title and clinching a spot in a BCS bowl game.

It actually looked like Oklahoma State would win. With Oklahoma up 20-17 and 4:27 left in the game, Oklahoma State quarterback Clint Chelf led the Cowboys on a 89-yard drive that ended with Desmond Roland giving State the lead when he scored his third touchdown of the day. But with 1:46 left, Bell led the Sooners on a 66-yard drive that ended with him finding Jalen Saunders for a seven-yard touchdown to put Oklahoma up for good.

"Jalen can make people miss and he's hard to cover," Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops said of the game-winning touchdown. "And Blake throws a good ball. He stayed in there and made some big plays down the stretch.

Which is why the Sooners (10-2, 7-2 Big 12) have won at least 10 games in four straight seasons.
