Oklahoma Sooners -23 at UCLA Bruins

Over/ Under 73

Jalen Hurts as Sooner was something a few years ago, nobody would’ve thought they’d see – but alas – here we are. Hurts is leading the number one offense in the country, in terms of yards per game averaging 709.5. They housed Houston 49-31 and then the following week beat up on South Dakota (as they should) 70-14.

All the while Jalen Hurts is looking like Super Man dominating on the field, making head coach Lincoln Riley continue to look like the quarterback guru of all quarterback guru’s in College Football.

Someone who was supposed to be a guru of sorts was Chip Kelly, head coach of UCLA. Chip Kelly built up an amazing program at Oregon and was noted as being a genius for his uptempo offense in the Pac-12. After a stint with the Philadelphia Eagles and the San Francisco 49ers, Kelly was humbled, finds himself in UCLA – and probably wishes he never left Oregon in the first place.

He was supposed to bring UCLA football back to the forefront of the college football world, but it’s been a mess. Once viewed as an offensive wizard, Kelly’s Bruins average 1.8 yards a rush and complete 52.5% of their passes.

Oklahoma’s defense isn’t fantastic, allowing 66% completion percentage and nearly five yards a rush. . . but considering UCLA is allowing over a 70% completion percentage, Lincoln Riley’s head must be bursting in anticipation to light up the Bruins.

There will be little to no, homefield advantage for the Bruins, as they have not only struggled to give their fans a glimpse of optimism but have also struggled in filling up the stadium.

Big road win for the team with way too much firepower.

The Pick: Oklahoma -23
