"The Big 12 Conference has moved into a new era," said OSU athletic director Mike Holder. "We are excited to host Bedlam on one of the biggest days of the college football season."
The Bedlam football game was last played outside of Thanksgiving weekend on Oct. 30, 2004, but has been played on the Saturday after Thanksgiving each of the last six years.
Oklahoma State is coming off an 11-2 season that saw the Cowboys earn a share of the Big 12 South championship and a win in the Valero Alamo Bowl. OSU finished No. 10 in the USA Today coaches' poll. It was OSU's first top-10 finish since 1984 and the first 11-win season in school history.
