With Bedlam 2019 just 24 hours away, it’s time for a deep dive into this week’s game notes ahead of the most important game of the season for both teams. At stake: OU’s national title hopes, OSU’s 10-win season (which would have sounded completely nuts just six weeks ago) and bragging rights for the next year inside the state of OK. Here are 10 things you need to know about Bedlam 2019. 1. 5K Definition Here are your 5,000-point teams (so far) in the 2010s (with just a month to go). 1. Oregon: 5,484 2. Oklahoma 5,375 3. Alabama: 5,317 4. Ohio State 5,265 5. Oklahoma State: 5,154 6. Clemson 5038 7. Baylor: 5,004 The only of these teams that play each other consistently are Baylor, OU and Oklahoma State. Other than that, every other team is alone in a conference. So that means Bedlam is annually — or has annually been for a decade — between two of the five most explosive offenses of the last 10 years. 2. Stillwater vs. Norman I wonder how common it is that a team has won nearly twice as many rivalry games on the road as at home. OSU has 12 wins…

Wow, I saw 2 of those Stillwater wins as a student.

Optimistic about this one! Go Pokes!!
