If the Sooners are going to lose a game this year, this will probably be it.
After a stunning 31-16 victory over the Ohio State Buckeyes this past Saturday, the Oklahoma Sooners are in the driver’s seat for the rest of the season, as they’re favored in every single matchup.
And while the Big 12 isn’t necessarily the toughest conference in college football, the Sooners will have to face off against three more ranked opponents as it stands this season (Kansas State, TCU and OSU)—with the toughest matchup coming against the Oklahoma State Cowboys on Nov. 4.
According to ESPN’s FPI, the Sooners have been given a 71 percent win probability in the contest. Pretty solid odds, especially considering the Sooners are the visiting team. But despite the Sooners being ranked No. 2 in the nation and having a 73 percent chance of winning the Big 12, anything could happen between now and then—just as the Ohio State-Oklahoma game showed.
The Sooners host Tulane this Saturday, and they’re overwhelming favorites in the matchup.
