Oklahoma State Wins Bedlam Thriller, 18-16 – Oklahoma State University Athletics.
Oklahoma (-10000) will cost you $100 for every $1 won, so obviously you cannot make that bet. Yes, the Sooners should be able to win this one rather handily but if you make this bet 100 times and lose just once, you’re in the red. Why risk it?
Against the spread
OKLAHOMA -31.5 (-103) is worth a look. Rattler and the Sooners offense will fire out of the gate and roll up big points in the first half. The only concern is the defense, which should be improved.

When Tulane Has the Ball
Once Southern Miss named Will Hall head coach, Fritz quickly tabbed Chip Long as Tulane’s new offensive coordinator. It’s easy to see why. While serving as Notre Dame’s offensive coordinator, Long received a nomination for the Broyles Award as the nation’s top assistant.
Tulane would have struggled to hang tight with Oklahoma at Yulman Stadium. Moving the game to Norman makes that even tougher.

Oklahoma vs. Tulane Prediction Week 1
This shouldn’t be much of a game no matter where it’s played. Tulane isn’t on the level of most Power 5 programs, much less a national title contender. Not only will Rattler have his way through the air but the Green Wave likely won’t have an answer for Brooks and Gray in the run game. This is going to be a blowout.

Saturday, September 4, 2021; 11:00 am; Gaylord Family – Oklahoma Memorial Stadium; Norman, OK
The Sooners are expected to win their seventh straight Big 12 Championship and a return to the College Football Playoffs. If they’re going to reach the CFP, they’ll have to limit losses to none or one this season.
Oklahoma’s defense is expected to be the best in many years. The Sooners’ front seven, led by Bonitto, noseguard Perrion Winfrey, and end Isiah Thomas could get a test with the line duo of Dublin and Haynesworth. OU’s offense should click on all cylinders, with Rattler leading the way.
