Oklahoma Wins 47-41 Thriller Over Oklahoma State, Likely Headed for Big Twelve Championship Game

Stillwater, OK (Sports Network) - Landry Jones threw for 468 yards and four touchdowns -- two of which came during a late-game shootout -- as 14th-ranked Oklahoma outlasted No. 10 Oklahoma State, 47-41, in a Bedlam Battle classic.

The Sooners (10-2, 6-2 Big 12) held a 33-24 lead with a little under six minutes to play in a contest that was, to that point, already entertaining.

But the teams used a series of big plays to rack up the points and provide a frenetic finish. Jones connected with Cameron Kenney on an 86-yard touchdown and later found James Hanna for a 76-yard strike to help Oklahoma stay one step ahead and hold on for the victory -- its eighth in a row over Oklahoma State (10-2, 6-2).

Moreover, the wild finish provided a three-way tie atop the Big 12 South standings. Oklahoma State had a chance to claim the spot outright with a victory, but the loss -- along with Texas A&M's victory over Texas on Thursday -- leaves the Sooners, Cowboys and Aggies knotted with a 6-2 conference record.

The division champion will be determined by which team has the highest BCS ranking when those standings are released Sunday.
