Despite their shaky performance last weekend against Army, the Oklahoma Sooners are ready to begin their conference schedule at home.

This Saturday, Oklahoma will host Baylor in a potential shootout. With both offenses putting up terrific numbers, Kyler Murray and Charlie Brewer could have huge days.

It should be a great day for offenses, but don't expect an upset to occur at Memorial Stadium.

According to ESPN's FPI, Oklahoma has a 90.5 percent chance of improving their record to 5-0. If Lincoln Riley's group is going to continue their success on offense, they'll have to rely on their balanced attack. Through four games, the Sooners are averaging 288.3 yards through the air and 214.0 yards on the ground.

ESPN FPI prediction.

Although Baylor allows just 23.5 points per contest, the Bears struggled to hold Duke's offense in check. It'll be interesting to see how the Bears fare against the Sooners.

Baylor and Oklahoma are set to kick off at 3:30 p.m. ET. The game will be on ABC.
