Oklahoma will open the 2018 season this Saturday. The Sooners will host Florida Atlantic and its quirky head coach Lane Kiffin.
Oklahoma will also be breaking in a new starting quarterback in Kyler Murray. Murray has big shoes to fill in replacing Baker Mayfield, but he has the skill set to have a big season.
While the Sooners are decidedly favored in this game, FAU is dangerous. The Owls had a huge season in 2017 and project to have a strong offense once again this fall.
ESPN’s FPI has predicted its outcome for the game. Clearly, the computer model doesn't think OU has much of a chance of losing.
Oklahoma has a 95.3 percent chance of winning, per the FPI.
Oklahoma and FAU will kick off at noon ET on Saturday.
FOX will broadcast the game.
