BCS rankings 2013: Oklahoma State loses BCS berth with loss to Oklahoma


Coming into the annual Bedlam game against the rival Oklahoma Sooners at home in Stillwater, the Oklahoma State Cowboys were in a position to clinch a share of the Big 12 Championship, and would secure themselves a trip to the BCS.

Well, things didn’t quite work out that way as the Pokes were upset by the 17th-ranked Sooners in the waning seconds of the game, 27-24, when Blake Bell hit Jalen Saunders in the back corner of the end zone.

With that loss to Bob Stoops and the Sooners, the Cowboys are now out of the BCS picture and have turned this afternoon’s Texas-Baylor contest into the Big 12 Championship Game.

Oklahoma State finishes their season now 10-2, with a 7-2 record in the conference. All things considered, it was yet another good season for Mike Gundy and his team. Aside from the crushing loss to West Virginia earlier in the season, they were impressive throughout, including knocking Baylor from the national championship picture on national television a few weeks ago on ABC.
