Cincinnati at Oklahoma
Saturday, 3:30 pm Eastern – ABC
SBG Global Opening Line: Oklahoma – 21 , Total 53.5
Two teams coming off blowout opening wins meet on Saturday as #4 Oklahoma hosts Cincinnati. The Sooners routed a hapless Chattanooga team 57-2 last week while the Bearcats routed Eastern Kentucky 40-7. Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford threw for 183 yards and two touchdowns but only played into the second quarter before Oklahoma backups came in. Chris Brown had three rushing touchdowns and DeMarco Murray ran for 124 yards and two TDs. The Sooners defense was untouchable as the only Chattanooga score was on a safety. “It’s game one. You keep it in perspective,” Sooners defensive coordinator Brent Venables said. “There’s certainly things that you still don’t know about guys, but it’s off to a good start.”
