The Sooners are heavily favored to rout Colorado in this game that can be seen on ESPN. Oklahoma is a 24-point favorite in college football betting at Sbg global.com.
Sooners Drop to #11
The Sooners were at the top of the BCS standings last week but a loss at Missouri has taken them out of national title contention. Head coach Bob Stoops is trying to convince his team that all is not lost though. The Sooners dropped to #11 in the AP poll and to #9 in the BCS standings.
Colorado is Struggling
The Sooners should not have too much trouble against a Colorado team that is 0-3 in the Big 12. The Buffaloes have done nothing under head coach Dan Hawkins but lose and that should be the case again on Saturday. The Buffs can’t stop the run as they are allowing 190 yards rushing the last four games. Oklahoma running back DeMarco Murray should have a great game. Colorado will also be without leading tackler Jon Major who suffered a torn medial collateral ligament in a 27-24 loss to Texas Tech last week.
The Buffaloes will also be without starting quarterback Tyler Hansen. That means it will be Cody Hawkins, at quarterback and when he is the starter the Buffaloes don’t win very often.
