NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Needing to score a touchdown in the final 30 seconds in two straight games, Landry Jones and No. 12 Oklahoma have come through in the clutch to stay right in the thick of the Big 12 championship chase.

The Sooners (9-2, 7-1 Big 12) won in the final moments of regulation at West Virginia, then tied the Bedlam rivalry with 4 seconds left before beating Oklahoma State 51-48 in overtime on Saturday night.

After failing to overcome a fourth-quarter deficit and win for five years, Oklahoma has done it in back-to-back games.

As a quarterback, Jones says he never wants to be trailing late and would rather win in a blowout. Even so, he figures those comebacks are games he'll never forget.

Next up for the Sooners is the regular-season finale Saturday at TCU.
