Last year, Oklahoma made it into the four-team college football playoff, losing to Clemson. This year they stumbled early against Houston, then lost at home against Ohio State, in a 45-24 humiliation. But they won their last nine games, seven of them by double digits, and went on to average 44.7 points per game, which was second best in the nation. They had Heisman Trophy candidates, like Baker Mayfield, who threw for 3669 yards and 38 touchdowns, as well as DeDe Westbrook, who caught 74 passes, including 16 touchdowns in the last nine games. On top of that, this is one of the best rushing attacks in the nation, with Samaje Perine and Joe Mixon, who has been the subject of much controversy lately but can really run with the ball, averaging seven yards per carry, and serving as a dual threat on the return teams.

BetAnySports patrons know that even though Oklahoma does a great job moving the chains, they are also susceptible to talented offenses. For example, they have allowed 817 rushing yards over their last three games, including 388 to West Virginia. On the season, they have yielded 4.6 yards per carry, so if Auburn can get its running game going, this can become a real donnybrook.

Auburn is going to have the availability of quarterback Sean White, who will start this game after having experienced shoulder problems this season. White is efficient, but in no way is he considered a dynamic threat throwing the football. He was intercepted only three times, but had only 1644 yards. And the Auburn brass was dissatisfied enough with him that they went out and recruited former Baylor quarterback Jarrett Stidham, who might step into the job ahead of White next year.

The running back combination for Auburn is solid, with Kamryn Pettway (1123 yards) and Karryon Johnson (862 yards), and that is what Oklahoma has to look out for. However, the Sooners might be able to afford stacking up against the run, because only one receiver on the Auburn roster had more than 236 yards in receptions.

Auburn is 37th in the nation in total offense, and went over 300 rushing yards five times. However, they only surpassed 250 yards through the air once. On defense, the Tigers are a different story, as they rank #21 in the nation in total defense. Here’s the interesting thing, however – the top-shelf offenses were able to move the football freely against them, including Texas A&M (478 yards), Alabama (501 yards) and Ole Miss (570 yards). There is no doubt that Oklahoma has at least as good an offense as any of them, and may have more weapons than anyone else in the country.
