2005 was a season of transition for both the Oklahoma Sooners and Oklahoma State Cowboys.
OSU's Mike Gundy was in his first year as head coach. OU was coming off a season where they made it the national championship game, but lost a lot of talent, including Heisman QB Jason White, to the draft and graduation.
2005 was also the year of the 100th Bedlam football game.
A near-record crowd of 84,875, most in crimson, drank in the sights as OU dominated 42-14.
