If the College Gameday crew’s picks determined the Bedlam victor, then it’d be Oklahoma State by the hair on its chinny chin chin.
The ESPN panel on Saturday morning made its picks the annual Bedlam rivalry, and Desmond Howard, Pat McAfee and Lee Corso all picked the Pokes, outnumbering Kirk Herbstreit and guest picker Nick Faldo by a 3-2 margin.
“I had to flip a coin for this one,” said Howard. “I think I’m going to go with the Cowboys. Go Pokes.”
“I like them as well,” added McAfee. “Spencer Sanders going to be playing, so give me Oklahoma State.”
Faldo found a way to slip in a golf reference by taking a little shot at OSU alum Rickie Fowler and his bright orange outfits while eventually picking the Sooners. “Orange is so last summer,” he said. “I’m going with Oklahoma.”
“I’m going to go with Oklahoma because of Eric Gray,” Herbstreit said of OU and its running back. “I think the line of scrimmage [will determine the game], so give me the Sooners.”
