STILLWATER, Okla. -- For the second straight year, No. 11 Oklahoma State heads into its regular-season finale against its in-state rival, No. 7 Oklahoma, with a chance to claim the Big 12 title.Last year, Oklahoma State was missing several key starters because of injuries, with quarterback Mason Rudolph hardly playing, and wound up losing 58-23 on its home field. Oklahoma claimed the Big 12 championship and advanced to the College Football Playoff.This time, coming off their most complete performance of the season, a 31-6 win over TCU on Nov. 19, followed by a bye week, the Cowboys (9-2, 7-1 Big 12, No. 10 CFP) are well-rested and determined to finish the job Saturday at Oklahoma (9-2, 8-0, No. 7 CFP).Were a healthier football team now, not only physically but mentally, OSU coach Mike Gundy said. We were a little bit beat up at this time last season. These guys, hopefully, weve instilled in them the importance of whether you have a tough loss or a big win, you have to continue to move forward. I think the biggest factor is were healthy and were in a position to practice at the pace that we need to practice in order to play at a high level.For the players, knowing that the Big 12 title is on the line brings out different mental approaches. One is to ignore the consequences of the result and just go out and play.We just look at it as any other game, try not to get too caught up in the hype or the emotions of it, said senior running back Chris Carson, who rushed 17 times for 146 yards and a touchdown against TCU. But this is great, playing for a Big 12 championship for the second year and hopefully looking for different results this year.Another mindset is to embrace the importance of the game and enjoy the high-stakes aspect of it.This is what you want as a senior, to be in a game with the Big 12 championship on the line, said tight end/fullback hybrid Blake Jarwin, who has 16 receptions for 180 yards and a touchdown this season. Its a new opportunity to go and maybe get a Big 12 championship. Im excited to go out there.As painful as it was seeing the Sooners celebrate on their field last season, the Oklahoma State players point out that the motivation to win is not really about returning the favor.Its not really a revenge factor, its done, but its really more of a learning experience, junior linebacker Chad Whitener said. Watching film from last year, really going back and studying, seeing what they did right and what we did wrong.Not necessarily revenge, but we know that we lost it last year, and we want to win, added Carson, who gained 38 yards on seven carries in last seasons showdown. Thats just the motivation -- it doesnt matter who we play, we just want to win the Big 12 championship.Saturdays game between Oklahoma State and Oklahoma marks the sixth time in the last nine seasons that the annual matchup known as Bedlam will determine the Big 12 champion.Besides last years game, a 33-24 Oklahoma win in 2013 prevented Oklahoma State from claiming the title and allowed Baylor to emerge as champion. In 2011, Oklahoma State defeated the Sooners 44-10 to win its only Big 12 championship and deny OU a share of the title.In 2010, Oklahomas 47-41 victory prevented the Cowboys from advancing to the Big 12 championship game, and in 2008, OUs 61-41 win enabled it to advance to the Big 12 title game.Gundy is proud that the annual in-state battle between the rivals has become such an important game on the national college football landscape.You have schools that are having fantastic seasons, have very exciting players, and give the state a lot to think about, Gundy said. We have 4 million people here in the state and its a big game. When they put up the college football standings and you have Oklahoma and Oklahoma State in the top 10, thats a tremendous financial advantage, marketing, for both universities in the state of Oklahoma.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25Adidas Originals Superstar Shoes Canada .

LOUIS -- Closers need nerves of steel. Raisel Iglesias is showing he has what it takes.Adam Duvalls two-run single was all Cincinnati needed as the Reds beat the St. Louis Cardinals 2-1 on Wednesday night.The Reds third win in their last four games dealt a blow to the Cardinals playoff hopes. St. Louis remained one game behind San Francisco for the NLs second wild card, with the New York Mets 1 1/2 games ahead of the Giants.Iglesias earned his fifth save in six opportunities with two innings of relief, pitching in and out of jams in both.A walk to his first batter, a hit batter and a wild pitch in the eighth had Iglesias pitching out of a second and third with one out situation.

After that I picked my tempo up and everything was fine after that.Cardinals pinch-hitter Kolten Wong led off the ninth with a triple. But Iglesias got a shallow fly sandwiched between two ground outs to end the game.After that I started to locate my pitches and it felt like a playoff game, Iglesias said. Im going to be aggressive as I can be and go after the hitters.Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani (9-5) allowed one runner in each of the first four innings, but only once during that span did the Cardinals have anyone in scoring position. He stranded five runners, including two in the sixth, his last inning. He allowed six hits and one run.He pitched his heart out for us, Reds manager Bryan Price said. What a boost. You think about our team and our turnaround in the second half and it really lines up with (DeSclafani) coming back into our rotation and getting Iglesias and (Michael) Lorenzen back healthy.It was the fifth quality start out of six in DeSclafanis career against the Cardinals. He improved to 4-1 with a 2.13 ERA against St. Louis.I face them more often, DeSclafani said. I feel I learn more about them and they learn more about me so its a constant adjustment.Duvall drove in his 101st and 102nd runs with his third-inning single.dddddddddddd He has seven RBI in the series.They werent going down easy thats for sure with Wong hitting that triple, Duvall said. But Iggy bared down and showed that he had some nasty stuff and was able to come out of it.Cardinals starter Mike Leake (9-12) allowed five hits and two runs in five innings, striking out six.Leake was lifted for pinch-hitter Matt Adams in the fifth and he grounded into a double play that scored Aledmys Diaz for the Cardinals lone run.Cardinals manager Mike Matheny brought closer Seung Hwan Oh in with one out in the eighth inning. Oh struck out both batters to get the Cardinals out of a jam after Duvall tripled to lead off the inning.Oh left the game with two outs in the ninth after being hit by a line drive from Jose Peraza.Its baseball, youre going to have times when you just dont get it done, Matheny said. Tonight was one of those times guys make good pitches in big situations and we couldnt finish it off.SPECIAL GUESTSThe St. Louis Blues attended the game and defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk threw out the first pitch.
