The Oklahoma State–Tulsa football rivalry, also known as the Bank of Oklahoma Turnpike Classic, is an American college football rivalry between the Oklahoma State Cowboys and Tulsa Golden Hurricane.[1] From 1935–1956, the two teams both competed in the Missouri Valley Conference. In those 22 seasons, the conference champion would be won by either Oklahoma State or Tulsa 16 times, thus establishing a rivalry.[2] They played each other annually from 1926–1965. The two universities are an hour apart from each other.[3]

Notable games[edit]

1945[edit]

Oklahoma A&M 12 – Tulsa 6

Oklahoma A&M entered week 6 undefeated (5–0) ranked #11 and hosted a Tulsa team who had dropped to #19 after their first loss to Indiana the previous week. This is the only contest between the two schools with both teams ranked in the AP Poll.[4] The Cowboys defeated the Golden Hurricane en route to an undefeated (9–0) season.

2011[edit]

Oklahoma State 59 – Tulsa 33

In week 3, Tulsa took on Oklahoma State in a home game that memorably lasted until 3:35 AM after inclement weather delayed the kickoff past midnight. The Golden Hurricane scored a field goal on their first drive to take an early lead, but were unable to contain the Cowboys' potent offense and quickly fell behind for good. The team was further hindered by the loss of G.J. Kinne near the end of the first quarter, forcing them to rely heavily on the run for the remainder of the game.
