Analyzing The Oklahoma Sooners 2016 College Football Winning Predictions



Week 1

At Houston Cougars

When: Saturday, Sep. 3 at 12:00 PM ET
Where: NRG Stadium, Houston, TX

Analysis: I’ve gone on record several times already to say that I like Houston for the ‘upset’ win as a slight Oklahoma Sooners home dog in this huge Week 1 regular season opener.

My Pick: Houston 30 Oklahoma 28

Week 2

At ULM Warhawks

When: Saturday, Sep. 10 at 7:00 PM ET
Where: Gaylord Family OK Memorial Stadium, Norman, OK

Analysis: Make no mistake about it, the Sooners will blow the Warhawks off the field in this Week 2 paring.

My Pick: Oklahoma 49 Louisiana-Monroe 14

Week 3

Ohio State Buckeyes

When: Saturday, Sep. 17 at 7:30 PM ET
Where: Gaylord Family OK Memorial Stadium, Norman, OK

Analysis: The Sooners will get the Buckeyes at home in this Week 3 affair, but something tells me they’re not getting the win over an Ohio State team with its own elite quarterback in J.T. Barrett.

My Pick: Ohio State 31 Oklahoma 28

Week 4

Saturday, Sep. 24

Week 5

At TCU Horned Frogs

When: Saturday, October 1 at TBA
Where: Amon G. Carter Stadium, Fort Worth, TX

Analysis: The Sooners should be able to take down a TCU team that has to replace super gifted quarterback Trevone Boykin.

My Pick: Oklahoma 45 TCU 38

Week 6

Texas Longhorns

When: Saturday, Oct. 8 at TBA
Where: Cotton Bowl Stadium, Dallas, TX

Analysis: The Sooners will win this Week 6 matchup going away against a Texas Longhorns team that will be better in Year Three of the Charlie Strong era, but not nearly good enough to take out the Sooners.

My Pick: Oklahoma 38 Texas 21

Week 7

Kansas State Wildcats

When: Saturday, Oct. 15 at TBA
Where: Gaylord Family OK Memorial Stadium, Norman, OK

Analysis: I absolutely love K-State head coach Bill Snyder, but his Wildcats aren’t in the same class of legitimate national title contenders as Oklahoma, although I do expect a bit of a dogfight in this Week 7 conference clash.

My Pick: Oklahoma 31 K-State 24

Week 8

At Texas Tech Red Raiders

When: Saturday, Oct. 22
Where: Jones AT&T Stadium, Lubbock, TX

Analysis: I smell trouble for the Sooners in this Week 8 Big 12 battle – just not enough trouble to make me pick against them. The Sooners win an absolutely high-scoring affair against the explosive Red Raiders.

My Pick: Oklahoma 52 Texas Tech 49

Week 9

At Kansas Jayhawks

When: Saturday, Oct. 29 at TBA
Where: Gaylord Family OK Memorial Stadium, Norman, OK

Analysis: Maybe it’s me, but I’m thinking the Kansas Jayhawks should just stick to what they do best – playing basketball. Simply put…Oklahoma routs Kansas.

My Pick: Oklahoma 45 Kansas 17

Week 10

At Iowa State Cyclones

When: Thursday, Nov. 3 at 7:30 PM ET
Where: Jack Trice Stadium, Ames, IA

Analysis: Even on the road, the Sooners are the easy pick to man-handle an Iowa State team that can’t even lay claim to being the best collegiate gridiron program in their own state.

My Pick: Oklahoma 42 Iowa State 20

Week 11

Baylor Bears

When: Saturday, Nov. 12
Where: Gaylord Family OK Memorial Stadium, Norman, OK

Analysis: The Baylor Bears are going to find life without disgraced head coach Art Briles more difficult that they could have ever imagined.

My Pick: Oklahoma 42 Baylor 28

Week 12

At West Virginia Mountaineers

When: Saturday, Nov. 19 at TBA
Where: Mountaineer Field, Morgantown, WV

Analysis: The Mountaineers certainly won’t go down easily at home in this Week 12 conference showdown, but they will fall – in a knock-down, drag-out affair!

My Pick: Oklahoma 31 West Virginia 28

Week 13

Saturday, Nov. 26

Week 14

Oklahoma State Cowboys

When: Saturday, Dec. 3
Where: Gaylord Family OK Memorial Stadium, Norman, OK

Analysis: While I can see the Oklahoma State Cowboys putting up a real fight in this regular season finale, there’s no way I see Oklahoma losing at home against their longtime conference and in-state rivals. The Sooners will a nail-biter!

My Pick: Oklahoma 28 Oklahoma State 27
