STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) For the first time since Bob Stoops took over as coach at Oklahoma, Oklahoma State will not be a 2-touchdown underdog.

The opening betting line for Saturday's game in Stillwater is OU by 6-points.

During Stoops' seven seasons at OU, the Sooners have been favored by at least 13 points in every game. The average line has been OU by 19.

But the outcome of the games have rarely reflected the betting lines. The Cowboys covered easily by playing spoiler and upsetting the Sooners in 2001 and 2002.

But OU has won the last three Bedlam match-ups.
