Whether or not Oklahoma gets the win and the cover comes down to a simple thing. Can the Sooners stop the run? Air Force leads the country in rushing offense so if you think that Oklahoma can stop the run then you make your college football bet on the Sooners.
The Sooners are 17-point favorites at Sbg global.com with the total on the game at 54. Last week the Sooners humiliated Florida State and quarterback Christian Ponder but they face a far different task this week against the Falcons who are averaging 423 yards rushing per game. Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops has said that it is a tough challenge for the Sooners against an offense they rarely see. The Sooners did not fare that well in their opening game against Utah State and their triple option. And Utah State doesn’t run it nearly as well as Air Force. The Sooners were better last week on defense and they hope to carry that momentum into this week’s game.
Oklahoma Doesn’t Lose at Home – The Sooners have the longest home winning streak in the country at 32 in a row so they are unlikely to lose. The question is whether they cover the 17 points or not. The Sooners don’t figure to be stopped by Air Force. Yes, the Falcons played well against BYU last week but this is not one of the better BYU teams. Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones threw for 380 yards last week against Florida State and he should have a field day throwing to Ryan Broyles and others. If he doesn’t throw it then DeMarco Murray should run wild.
