Oklahoma State Vs. Oklahoma Score Update: Sooners Strike Back In Second Quarter

Oklahoma looked likely to score and cut Oklahoma State's Bedlam lead to one possession. Then Oklahoma State's defense did what it has done all year, forcing a turnover and setting up the Cowboys' offense in great position for an easy touchdown to extend the lead to 17-0 in Stillwater.

Go here for Bedlam score updates and conversation.

Oklahoma State's Alex Elkins stripped Landry Jones on a blitz, and Jamie Blatnick scooped up the ball and took it to the Oklahoma 1. Joseph Randle punched in the one-yard touchdown run on the first play of that drive to stretch the Cowboys' lead to three possessions.

That's nothing new at all for Oklahoma State's defense in 2011. While the Cowboys have been known to hemorrhage yardage, they lead the nation in turnovers forced and turnover margin.
