Sportsman of the Week Ending 11/5/2023
An epic week and weekend in sports was highlighted by great NFL matchups, the World Series, the Breeders Cup, and college football. It's the latter we focus on and in particular, Bedlam. The Bedlam football series between Oklahoma Sooners and Oklahoma State Cowboys has taken place for 1xx years, even longer than Oklahoma was a state. And in what may be the final matchup for a while after Sooners chose to leave for the Southeastern Conference, it was the little brother Cowboys who came out on top in front of a frenzied crowd. And the engine that made it happen was all world running back Ollie Gordon II. Gordon II has been epic this season and against the best opponent of the year, put up great numbers. He ran for 137 yards and 2 TD, while catching another pass for over 150 yards total. He's been doing this all year now with 1224 yards without even racking up many in non-conference play as he earned the starting nod. His yardage leads the country. He's averaging 7.0 yards per carry, best of anyone with 125 carries or more. He's doing it all and now Oklahoma State is tied for the conference lead. Ahead of big brother Oklahoma. It doesn't get any better than that, thanks to Ollie Gordon II, the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
