Series History (OSU leads 22-19)
These teams first met in 1914, where Oklahoma State won 60-0 in Stillwater.
From there, the Bears rattled off a nine-game winning streak in the series, and in that time OSU scored only 31 total points, getting shut out in five of those games.
After splitting four games from 1972 to 1994, OSU went onto win 15 of 16 from 1996 to 2011.
Before last season’s Big 12 championship game, the biggest contest between the two probably came in 2013 when No. 3 Baylor traveled to Stillwater just to get thumped 49-17.
The 2021 season saw a pair of instant classics where the Cowboys won 24-14 in Stillwater before the Pokes’ hearts got ripped out at the Baylor goal line in Arlington.
Here is a look at the past 10 meetings between the teams:
