Analyst Names Oklahoma's 'Trap' Game For 2017

Will Oklahoma lose this game?

Earlier today, Oklahoma announced starting quarterback Baker Mayfield would not miss any time on the field as a result of his arrest.

That decision resulted in mixed feelings among those on Twitter .

Heading into the 2017 season knowing Baker Mayfield won't miss any time is great news for Sooners fans who want to see their team compete for a championship this season.

Although they will be without longtime head coach Bob Stoops, the Sooners are the heavy favorite to take the Big 12 crown this year.

Oklahoma gets an early test against Ohio State in the second week of the season. But which game do experts have circled as a potential trap game for the Sooners?

According to Sporting News, Oklahoma needs to watch out for the Red Raiders.

vs. Texas Tech (Oct. 28). There aren’t a lot of games that fit this description on first-year coach Lincoln Riley’s plate, the home game against the Red Raiders always produces a lot of points. It’s also sandwiched between critical road games against Kansas State and Oklahoma State.

Oklahoma can't afford to look ahead to a matchup with Oklahoma State with Texas Tech's potent offense on the field.
