OU Players: Bedlam Is a Rivalry, ‘Just Like’ Texas Game

We’ve all heard it before from our crimson-favoring counterparts. Bedlam’s not a real rivalry. They reserve that status for the vaunted Longhorns. You know, the team Mike Gundy has beaten five straight times in Austin.

As silly and self-betraying as that sentiment may be, Bedlam is still a rivalry, one-sided or not. Just ask the actual Sooners who will be making the hour-plus trip north on I-35 on Saturday.
