NORMAN -- Oklahoma's Brennan Clay scored from 18 yards out in the first overtime, lifting the Sooners to a 51-48 win over Oklahoma State on Saturday at Owen Field.
Clay's touchdown came after Oklahoma held the Cowboys to a Quinn Sharp field goal on their first possession of overtime.
OU's Blake Bell scored from 4 yards out on fourth-and-1 with four seconds left to tie the game. The Sooners never led in regulation.
Sooners quarterback Landry Jones was 46-of-71 for 500 yards and three touchdowns. OU placed three receivers over 100 yards -- Jalen Saunders 10 for 162; Justin Brown 15 for 146 and Kenny Stills 9 for 103.
Oklahoma State jumped out to a 14-0 lead, getting rushing touchdowns of 1 and 3 yards from Joseph Randle. The second Randle run was set up by a Lyndell Johnson interception of Jones.
But OU rallied to tie the game at 17 on two Jones TD passes -- one of 14 yards to Trey Millard and a 9-yarder to Jalen Sounders.
The Cowboys rebuilt a 38-27 lead late in the third quarter on Randle's fourth rushing touchdown of the game.
OU, however, rallied again, getting an 81-yard punt return for a touchdown from Brown. Jones hit Brown for the two-point conversion to tie things at 38 just into the fourth quarter.
OSU retook the lead on a J.W. Walsh 2-yard run, but Bell returned the favor with four seconds left to force overtime.
OSU quarterback Clint Chelf was 19-of-37 for 253 yards and one touchdown. He added 63 yards on the ground. Joseph Randle rushed for 113 yards and the four TDs, while Josh Stewart had 11 catches for 150 yards.
Oklahoma is 9-2 overall and 7-1 in the Big 12. The Sooners finish the season with TCU next week. OSU, 7-4 and 5-3, closes the year at Baylor.
