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."
