STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) Oklahoma took the Big 12 title and likely a spot in the College Football Playoff - and did at the expense of rival Oklahoma State in a Bedlam blowout.

Baker Mayfield threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score and the No. 5 Sooners beat the No. 9 Cowboys 58-23 on Saturday night.

"There's a lot of tension in the air," Oklahoma cornerback Jordan Thomas, who intercepted two passes and returned one for a touchdown, said. "Obviously, this game - we don't need anyone to tell us it's a big game. We don't need anyone to tell us that it's a game we have to play our hearts out in. But this one? I could tell. I knew our guys were ready and I knew what we were playing for."

Curry, the league's reigning Most Valuable Player and its leading scorer this season with an average of 32.6 points, played less than 30 minutes in the 120-101 victory Saturday night and took only seven shots - all but one in the first quarter. (MORE)
