The ESPN College GameDay had a few delectable matchups to pick from in Week 10. They opted for Bedlam.
After featuring the Big Ten in consecutive weeks with trips to Penn State and Ohio State, the crew is going back to the Big 12 to see either Oklahoma or Oklahoma State take a big step toward punching their conference championship game ticket.
Here are all the details for GameDay's Week 10 trip to Stillwater.
Location: Oklahoma State University – Stillwater, Okla.
Oklahoma State will host GameDay for the first time since the 2015 regular-season finale, when ESPN also came for Bedlam. Overall it's the sixth time Stillwater is hosting, five of which have come with the Sooners in town.
This is Oklahoma's second GameDay appearance of the season. Their first was also a road game when they faced Ohio State in Week 1. It comes after the Sooners were not featured at all in 2016 (three appearances in 2015).
Oklahoma State is just 1-6 in seven appearances, while Oklahoma 22-10 in 32 appearances, the fifth-most of any program.
Guest Picker Prediction
ESPN invited Rickie Fowler and Marcus Smart to the set in 2015 and 2013, respectively, and could go a similar direction with a former athlete in Week 10 (though Smart was a current student-athlete in 2013).
Here are a few possibilities.
The odds-on favorite, Barry Sanders was a unanimous All-American and Heisman Trophy winner in 1988 when he ran for 2,850 yards as a senior. He was the third pick in the 1989 draft and was a 10-time Pro Bowler and 1997 NFL MVP before retiring at the end of the 1998 season.
Sanders would be an overwhelmingly popular pick and one that even non-Cowboy fans would applaud.
Bryant "Big Country" Reeves hails from the tiny town of Gans on the eastern edge of Oklahoma. He averaged 17 points and 8.5 rebounds over four seasons at Oklahoma State, including at least 21 points and nine boards over his final two.
The two-time Big 8 Player of the Year played six seasons in the NBA with the Vancouver Grizzlies before retiring in 2000.
Eddie Sutton played at Oklahoma in the 1950s and began his coaching career there as an assistant from 1958-59. Thirty-one years later, he returned to be the Cowboys' head coach and went 368-151 over 16 seasons (1999-2006).
The court at Gallagher-Iba Arena is named after him.
