NORMAN, Okla. — Landry Jones threw for 500 yards and three touchdowns, and Brennan Clay scored on an 18-yard run in overtime to lift No. 14 Oklahoma to a 51-48 win against No. 22 Oklahoma State in the Bedlam rivalry on Saturday.
The Sooners (9-2, 7-1) never led during regulation, overcoming double-digit deficits in both halves. Backup quarterback Blake Bell tied it with 4 seconds left on a 4-yard keeper on fourth-and-1.
Joseph Randle ran for 113 yards and matched his career-high with four touchdowns for Oklahoma State (7-4, 5-3), which settled for Quinn Sharp's 26-yard field goal in overtime.
Oklahoma kept alive its chances for at least a share of the Big 12 championship and could win it outright by beating TCU next week if No. 7 Kansas State loses to Texas.
The first Bedlam overtime game set off an unusually giddy Oklahoma celebration on its home field. The Sooners had lost only three times at home in Bob Stoops' first 13 seasons but dropped games this season against Kansas State and Notre Dame.
Players ran around the field in celebration, joining fans in the stands in leaping up and down when “Jump Around” was blared over the loudspeaker.
With his second straight 500-yard passing game, Jones surpassed Texas Tech's Graham Harrell to become the Big 12's career passing leader. He also became the first Bowl Subdivision quarterback to throw for 3,000 yards and 26 TDs in four seasons.
Baylor 52, Texas Tech 45 (OT) — In Arlington, Texas, Glasco Martin scored on a 4-yard run in overtime and Baylor overcame three missed field goals, including one on the last play of regulation, to become bowl eligible.
Nick Florence threw for 396 yards and three touchdowns for the Bears (6-5, 3-5), who didn't lead until Eddie Lackey's 55-yard interception return for a touchdown on the first play of a wild fourth quarter.
Lackey's second pick, with 1:46 left, set up Baylor at the Red Raiders' 32. But Aaron Jones missed wide left on a 48-yard field-goal attempt.
After Martin's second TD run, Texas Tech (7-5, 4-5) started overtime with a holding call and two incompletions. After a 15-yard play set up fourth-and-5, Seth Doege's pass to a well-defended Eric Ward was incomplete, ending the game.
With Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Robert Griffin III watching from the Bears' sideline, Baylor became bowl eligible for the third consecutive season.
Baylor was coming off a Bowl Championship Series-shaking 52-24 victory over Kansas State, then the No. 1 team in the BCS standings.
