Instant Analysis: Oklahoma State 38, Oklahoma 35

It's called Bedlam for a reason.

Oklahoma State secured an improbable 38-35 overtime win over Oklahoma at Oklahoma Memorial Stadium on Saturday.

Here's how it happened.

How the game was won: Oklahoma State got it done in overtime. Oklahoma did not. Oklahoma looked like it would cruise to a win midway through the final quarter but Oklahoma State had other ideas, scoring 17 unanswered points in the final five minutes of regulation and overtime. The Sooners missed a field goal attempt on their first overtime possession and the Cowboys responded with a 21-yard field goal by Ben Grogan to seal Mike Gundy's first-ever win as a head coach at Oklahoma Memorial Stadium.

Game ball goes to: Oklahoma State running back/receiver Tyreek Hill. The Sooners looked like they had their ninth win cemented before the Cowboys junior blazed down the sidelines for a 92-yard punt-return touchdown with 45 seconds remaining to tie the game at 35. Without Hill's game-breaking ability, the Sooners likely head home with yet another Bedlam win.

What it means: Oklahoma State gains bowl eligibility with an unexpected triumph over the Sooners. The Cowboys will get valuable extra practice time for Gundy's youthful roster. Meanwhile, Oklahoma continues dreaming of what could have been with yet another loss full of miscues and mistakes from a Bob Stoops team that was considered among the favorites for the College Football Playoff during the preseason.

What's next: Both teams will be heading to bowl games as Oklahoma State improved to 6-6 while Oklahoma finishes the season at 8-4.
