Will the 2021 Oregon Ducks have one final game under old coaching staff?
While most are looking ahead to the Dan Lanning era, the 2021 Oregon Ducks have one final game under (some of) the old coaching staff, and I don’t think it’ll go well. Both the Ducks and Sooners have had a share of opt outs and former head coaches who left seemingly overnight.

The Ducks and the Sooners will be without a lot of their key players due to opt outs, but I think Oregon will be affected more in this regard.

When Oregon Has the Ball
The Ducks are not only losing their head coach, but their offensive coordinator is leaving for a different gig too. At least in the case of Joe Moorhead, he’ll be staying behind to call plays one last time before taking over as Akron’s head coach.
When Oklahoma Has the Ball
Riley’s departure for Los Angeles sent the rumor mill swirling that quarterback Caleb Williams could be next in line, but so far that hasn’t happened — with backup and one-time Heisman favorite Spencer Rattler actually the one making it to the USC on the opposite coast.
Despite a patchwork of coaches and players being involved in this one following changes at the top for both programs, this meeting of programs going through various states of interlude offers plenty of storylines and playmakers for the future.
Oregon Ducks vs Oklahoma Sooners Odds
It’s hard to know how full strength these teams will be, but in the regular season Oklahoma was certainly better, so we will go with that. We like Oklahoma to cover the spread.
Oklahoma Offense a Major Question Mark
What a season it was at Oklahoma. Starting the year with the Heisman favorite and a potential No. 1 pick in quarterback Spencer Rattler, only for him to fizzle out and get pushed out of the spot by freshman Caleb Williams.
X-factors to Watch
Without question, in this game, the x-factors are the coaches. Both teams are in between things after Oregon’s Mario Cristobal left for Miami and Oklahoma’s Lincoln Riley left for USC.

Oregon vs Oklahoma Prediction
Oregon is coming into this Alamo Bowl as a 4.5 point underdog with the current betting odds according to Draftkings Sportsbook. Both of these teams had very similar seasons this year, both were good teams but were stopped just short of their goals and this is definitely not the bowl game that either team wanted to play in.

The Oregon Ducks finished the 2021 season with a 10-3 record. After having a spot in the College Football Playoff, Oregon had their National Championship hopes spoiled by the Utah Utes. Utah, in fact, handed Oregon two of their three losses this season in the final weeks of the season.
Ducks Defense Will Struggle
For this matchup, it goes without saying that both teams will rely heavily on their offense to carry them to a victory as their defenses have not played well down the stretch. The defense that sticks out to me as having a tougher time keeping up in this one is Oregon.
Ducks Lose Without a Running Game
On the other side of the ball, the Oregon offense has become one-dimensional in their downfall to end the season. When the Ducks abandon their run game or don’t see production, the team has often found themselves on the short end of the scoreboard. From a bettor’s perspective, the Ducks are 5-12 ATS when rushing for less than 100 yards in a game.
Oklahoma Fares Better in Bowl Games
In recent history, both teams have a 2-3 record in their last five bowl appearances. Oklahoma is coming off a 2020 bowl win over Florida, 55-20. Last year the Ducks lost to Iowa State 34-17.
These two teams have met seven times in their schools’ history. Oklahoma is 6-1 all-time vs. Oregon, with Oregon’s lone win coming in their most recent matchup in 2006, which was a 34-33 final.
Betting Trends Worth Noting
The Oregon Ducks are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games vs. teams with a winning record.
