Florida Atlantic-Oklahoma Preview and Prediction!

Game Time: 12:00 pm ET
Venue: Memorial Stadium, Norman, OK
Network: FOX

Why FAU can win this game?

Skill position players! Let’s start with the running game where the Owls will be lead by Devin Singletary who last year rushed for over 1,900 yards and 32 Touchdowns. Throw in a tight end in Harrison Bryant who you will soon watch on Sunday afternoons and a talented receiver corps led by Willie Wright, and you have enough weapons to put points up on any team.

The quarterback position is stacked with talent also as they will be helped by SMU transfer Rafe Peavey, former Florida State Seminole De’Andre Johnson and booted former Oklahoma Sooner Chris Robison. I know the Sooners are not stacked on defense but they have athletic players and the Owls should give them all kinds of problems to deal with in this game.

Why Oklahoma can win this game?

Games are won in the trenches and while the Owls are not bad up front they have nowhere near the talent that the Sooners have. The Sooners aren’t going to overthink this on offense – run RB Rodney Anderson, run quarterback Kyler Murray and find ways to get the ball into Marquise Brown’s hands, and let it all roll. The Sooners offensive line should dominate the Owls defensive line.

Who Wins?

Florida Atlantic doesn’t have the depth that the Sooners have. If we are matching just the top 22 players on this team it would be a tight matchup but unfortunately for the Owls, they do not have the ability to hang for four quarters with the Sooners. This should be a fun, fairly high-scoring game, but I look for the Sooners to pull away in the fourth quarter.

Oklahoma Sooners 44  Florida Atlantic Owls 27
