2013 "FUN" BEDLAM FOOTBALL FACTS

OU STUDENT (name withheld for privacy)

Yea, I know. This doesn't look good for OSU, but I always find it fascinating to review.

While the history of Bedlam has not been kind to the Cowboys, I still like to look through the numbers at some of the interesting stats and trends.

There are pretty much 3 periods of Bedlam:

  • 1904-45...OSU had 8 wins and 6 ties (didn't play in 1905 or 1909)
  • 1946-94...3 wins and 1 tie (winless in two decades...50's & 80's)
  • 1995 to present...6 wins
Two most successful 10 year periods for OSU came in
  • 1924-33...5-2-3 (although, in the 8 yrs from 1926-34 OU had only one win)
  • 1995-2004...5-5 (Thank you to John Blake and Rashaun Woods)
OU obviously had a lovely run from 1946-64, going undefeated in Bedlam.

A couple of overall stats
  • Average score...30.2 - 9.1
    -OU wins...33.9 - 9.3
    -OSU wins...22 - 8.9
    What I find fascinating about this is that, no matter who loses, they score around 10 points.
  • Average score in the last 20...36.1 - 17.8
    -OU wins...38.6 - 19.4
    -OSU wins...30.2 - 14.0
  • Average score in the last 10...43.8 - 23.6 (Since OSU only had one win, I won't bother breaking this down)
  • The last two Bedlam contests have produced the largest home crowds respectively for the series
    -OU, 85,824
    -OSU, 58,141 (and I was one of those)
  • OSU didn't score a single point in the series until the 9th game (1914)
  • OU was held scoreless for 7 consecutive games (1928-34)
The one positive I will take out of this? The Cowboys have NEVER won more than 6 games in a 20 year span. OSU currently has 6 wins since 1995...2013 could be a RECORD!!!

Here's the full table, courtesy of Wikipedia. Another great site that has just come around this year is Winsipedia. Sort of like Wikipedia for sports stats and comparisons. Check out this OU vs OSU page.
