Backup running back Joe Mixon added 147 rushing yards and one score while Mayfield also scored twice on the ground.

Oklahoma State Cowboys Vs Oklahoma Sooners ATS Pick
61 percent of the betting public likes Oklahoma State o cover the double-digit point spread and so do I.
The Cowboys are 4-0 ATS in their last four games against a team with a winning record and 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games after rushing for more than 200 yards in their previous game.
On the flip side of the coin, Oklahoma is an uninspiring 2-5 ATS in their last seven home games against a team with a winning road record and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATS win.
While Oklahoma State has gone 3-8 ATS in their last 11 meetings, the bottom line for this matchup is that these two teams are very evenly matched and this contest should easily be decided by much closer to a field goal than the insane double-digit spread it currently is.
Oklahoma State covers the spread with room to spare while pushing the Sooners really hard for the outright win.
