Oklahoma has notched some memorable victories over Oklahoma State in Stillwater on previous games played on Nov. 29. Here's a look at two of the most historic games in the series.
Nov. 29, 1958: No. 3 Oklahoma 7, Oklahoma State 0 -- Backup quarterback Bobby Boyd raced on a 31-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter to provide the only points in a bitter defensive struggle. Prentice Gautt provided key offensive and defensive plays as the Sooners won despite producing only 196 yards of total offense.
Nov. 29, 1969: Oklahoma 28, Oklahoma State 27 -- Steve Owens gave Heisman voters something to consider by rushing for a then-NCAA record 55 carries for a career-best 261 yards to lead the victory. The Sooners held on for the victory after snuffing out a two-point conversion by Oklahoma State quarterback Bob Cutburth with 1:33 left. The Cowboys had pulled within 28-27 on the previous play on a 6-yard touchdown pass from Cutburth to Herman Eben. Owens, who eventually became Oklahoma's athletic director during the 1990s, won the Heisman the following week.
