STILLWATER — Who in their right mind could want the Bedlam rivalry to end after a game like this?

Sellout Crowd’s Jenni Carlson and Berry Tramel analyze Oklahoma State’s 27-24 victory Saturday in another Bedlam thriller. Among their observations:

*Oklahoma State’s Rashod Owens’ 10 catches for 150 yards were a key advantage for the Cowboys.

*The Cowboy defense’s heroics went far beyond the dramatic fourth-down stop.

*OSU won because it had fewer screwups than the Sooners.

*Beyond Bedlam emotions and nostalgia, what about the Cowboys’ chance to make the Big 12 title game in Arlington.
