Oklahoma Sooners vs. UTEP Miners NCAAF Pick
It may not be the most attractive game on the Sooners’ schedule, but that won’t detract from the excitement around Venables first game as the head coach. Expect the Sooners’ new defense to be put to the test vertically by the Miners’ passing attack.
Oklahoma still has a lot of athletes to counter this. Early-season misteps can be expected. The Sooners should not have any difficulty containing a UTEP offense that’s going to still be looking for fresh playmakers to step up.
The Miners’ defense has improved much from previous seasons, but it hasn’t gained a lot of experience playing against Power Five offensives. The Sooners’ will get one more friendly matchup against Kent State the next week prior to a meeting with Nebraska in Lincoln.
Oklahoma will Win, Texas El Paso will Cover, and the Total will go Over.
