Summary

If you had told us in Week 3 that these two teams were going to play each other in a bowl game, we would've asked, "What seed?"

Now, this game has all the makings of a real snoozefest.

Cristobal is out, Oregon is banged up, and they're coming off two embarrassing losses to Utah. Plus, it's hard to imagine interim head coach Bryan McClendon can get his guys excited for battle against a strong Oklahoma Sooners team that seems like it has something to prove (now that they didn't win the Big 12).

For its part, Oklahoma had its struggles throughout the season both on the field and now with their mutinous traitor of a former coach (joking!), but the stars are aligning for a convincing win for the Sooners to end the year.

Our Pick

Oklahoma is the safe pick here. Bob Stoops coming out of retirement against an Oregon program in shambles?

What more do we need to say?

The Score: 36-30, Sooners
