Saturday, Dec. 6
Bumper stickers, license plate frames, front doormats and even garden gnomes effectively proclaim an utterly fascinating fact of life in Oklahoma – many houses remain divided, showing their true colors during Bedlam. The annual pigskin showdown between Stillwater’s Oklahoma State University Cowboys and Norman’s University of Oklahoma Sooners is back on Saturday, Dec. 6, this year at Norman’s Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium, 180 W. Brooks St., on the OU campus. The final game of the regular season, the Bedlam game has become one of the state’s biggest sports match-ups both on the field and off. All too often the rivalry plays out in living rooms across the state and around the nation as Cowboys cohabitating with Sooners endure one another’s verbal taunts. In Oklahoma, that’s tradition. Kickoff will be at 2:30 p.m., and it will be broadcast on Fox Sports 1. For game and ticket information, go to www.soonersports.com.
