Oklahoma vs. Oklahoma State Bedlam Series Rivalry Bobblehead Now Available
MILWAUKEE – This morning, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum announced that the officially licensed, limited edition bobblehead celebrating the rivalry between the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University is now available. The bobblehead, which is the first for the rivalry, features University of Oklahoma mascot “Boomer” and Oklahoma State University mascot “Pistol Pete” standing side-by-side with their arms crossed. The bobbleheads were produced exclusively for the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum by FOCO, an official licensee and manufacturer of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and NCAA merchandise.
Each dual bobblehead is individually numbered to 1,000 and they are only available through the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum’s Online Store. The bobbleheads, which recently arrived and ship now, are $60 plus a flat-rate shipping charge of $8 per order.
Known as the “Bedlam Series,” the intense rivalry between the two schools has taken place for over a century. The football rivalry started in 1904 when OSU was known as Oklahoma A&M. The Sooners hold a commanding 89-18-7 lead in the all-time series and have won the last five meetings. However, heading into this year’s matchup on Saturday, November 21, Oklahoma State enters the game ranked 14th in the nation while Oklahoma is ranked 17th in the Coaches’ Poll and 18th in the AP Top 25.
The storied rivalry goes beyond the marquee events of football and basketball. The rivalry is all the more intense because games often decide the Big 12 Conference championship. The term “Bedlam” began with the rivalry between the schools’ prestigious wrestling programs, more particularly the raucous crowds that attended the matches held at OSU’s Gallagher-Iba Arena. In wrestling, Oklahoma State holds a lopsided advantage, 141-27-10. OSU has won a record 34 national titles on the mat, while Oklahoma has won seven. In men’s basketball, Oklahoma leads the all-time series 135-95.
"We’re excited that this bobblehead commemorating the fierce rivalry between Oklahoma and Oklahoma State arrived in time for the Bedlam Series football game and the holidays,” National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum co-founder and CEO Phil Sklar said. “Whether it’s football, wrestling, basketball or any other sport, the Bedlam Series is one to watch, and this bobblehead is the perfect way to celebrate the historic rivalry.”
