The Sooners have lost just four regular season conference games over the past four years and the Cowboys are responsible for two of them. One of those defeats was two years ago when Oklahoma State won, 38-28, the last time the teams met in Stillwater, Okla.

Who: Oklahoma (2 ) at Oklahoma State (20)
When: Sat., Noon ET (ABC)
Where: Boone Pickens Stadium, Stillwater, Okla.
Two of college football's premiere running backs face off, making this heated rivalry even more exciting this year. Cowboys' RB Vernand Morency is ranked third in the country in rushing yards, while Oklahoma freshman RB Adrian Peterson is ranked fourth. Each is capable of leading his team to victory so expect both defenses to focus on stopping the run.
