Why Oklahoma can cover
The Sooners had a very solid rushing attack during the 2021 campaign as they averaged 176.3 rushing yards which ranked fifth in the conference. This ground game is led by redshirt junior Kennedy Brooks who ranked fifth in the Big 12 in rushing yards (1,111) and rushing yards per game (92.6). Brooks also recorded 10 rushing touchdowns which ranked seventh in the conference.
The Texas native has registered four games with more than 100 yards rushing, including two straight games to end the year. His best outing came in the Oct. 9 victory against the Texas Longhorns as Brooks had 25 carries for 217 yards with two touchdowns. With Oregon missing multiple defensive starters including All-American edge rusher Thibodeaux, you can expect Oklahoma to get this ground game going.
Why Oregon can cover
Senior quarterback Brown was second in the Pac-12 with 2,683 passing yards while tossing 15 touchdowns. Brown also has the athleticism to make plays with his legs. He was second on the team with 637 rushing yards along with nine scores. The New Jersey native logged more than 300 total scrimmage yards in four contests during the regular season.
Junior running back Travis Dye was one of the top rushers in the Pac-12. He was third in the conference in rushing yards (1,118) with 15 rushing scores. Dye scored a rushing touchdown in 10 of the 13 games played. His best outing came in a win against Washington. The California native had 28 carries for 211 yards and a score. The ground game for Ducks has been explosive and can cause problems for the Sooners’ defense.
