Allen Patrick
Allen Patrick rushed for a career-high 202 yards (142 in the first half) as Oklahoma advanced to next weekend's Big 12 Championship game with a 49-17 win over Oklahoma State. It was the Sooners' fifth-straight win over the Cowboys.

Norman, OK - Oklahoma scored on their first four possessions and cruised to an easy 49-17 victory over Oklahoma State in the annual Bedlam Series contest. The win gives the Sooners a second consecutive Big 12 South championship and a berth in the Big 12 Title game next Saturday in San Antonio.

Quarterback Sam Bradford rebounded from last week’s concussion and threw for four touchdowns, giving him a total of 32 for the season – a new NCAA freshman record. Senior running back Allen Patrick ran 29 times for a career-high 202 yards and two touchdowns and he added a third on a pass reception, atoning for last week’s opening fumble at Texas Tech.

The Sooners scored every time they had the ball in the first half, rolling to a 28-10 halftime lead. Oklahoma State closed the gap to 28-17 midway through the third quarter, but the Oklahoma defense shut them down from that point, not allowing the Cowboys a first down the rest of the game while the OU offense added three more touchdowns for the lopsided final score.

Senior tight end Joe Jon Finley caught two touchdown passes from Bradford and reserve Quentin Chaney hauled in the final scoring toss from Bradford, who finished 11-of-15 for 150 yards. The Sooners punted just once in the entire contest.

The vaunted Oklahoma State offense, averaging 500 yards per game, was held to just 299 by the Sooners.

Oklahoma is now 10-2 on the season and will await the winner of Saturday night’s Kansas-Missouri contest to find out who their opponent will be in the Big 12 Championship game.
