Oklahoma State going into Bedlam seeking league title

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – Oklahoma State has made an impressive recovery to again go into Bedlam with a chance to win the Big 12 title.
And Cowboys coach Mike Gundy still insists that their record is even better than what officially is 9-2 with a seven-game winning streak since losing their conference opener.
“You don’t get to 10 wins very often, and double digits is a pretty special place to be,” Gundy said after their 31-6 victory at TCU.
This is the fourth time in six seasons since the Big 12 went to 10 teams without divisions, and second year in a row, that 10th-ranked Oklahoma State (9-2, 7-1 Big 12) will prepare for its rivalry game against seventh-ranked Oklahoma (9-2, 8-0) still in title contention. But the Cowboys’ only Big 12 championship was five years ago.
Oklahoma State took 10-1 records into Bedlam in 2011, 2013 and 2015.
Gundy truly believes the Cowboys are 10-1 again this season since officials admitted after their 30-27 loss to Central Michigan on Sept. 10 that the game-ending Hail Mary touchdown pass on an untimed play should have never happened.
Oklahoma, which is going for its 10th Big 12 title, won 56-28 at West Virginia late Saturday night to win its eighth game in a row since two non-conference losses.
