STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - If not for a pressure-packed change of heart, Ryan Broyles and Justin Blackmon could be playing on the same team instead of against each other in a Bedlam showdown between the nation's top two receivers.
Broyles initially committed to Oklahoma State before getting a late scholarship offer from Oklahoma that he only decided to accept on signing day, creating a Biletnikoff Award showcase three years down the road.
Broyles leads the nation with 106 catches this season, while Blackmon is second in receptions and first in receiving yardage with 1,560. The two are among the finalists for the Biletnikoff Award given to the nation's top receiver, along with South Carolina's Alshon Jeffery.
Saturday night they'll be competing for a different prize: a rivalry win and a berth in the Big 12 championship game.
