The No. 7 Oklahoma Sooners are 5-1 heading into a Big 12 Conference matchup with the TCU Horned Frogs on Saturday at Amon G. Carter Stadium in Fort Worth, Texas.
The Sooners had last week off to regroup following an upset loss to Texas in the Red River Showdown, a game in which they stormed all the way back from a 21-point fourth-quarter deficit to tie the game before falling 48-45 on a field goal with nine seconds remaining. Prior to the loss, Lincoln Riley‘s squad notched wins over Florida Atlantic, UCLA, Iowa State, Army and Baylor over the first five weeks of the season.
Following the Week 7 games, ESPN updated its Football Power Index ratings, which featured the Sooners as the No. 7 team in the country and No. 1 team in the Big 12 Conference. In addition to its team ratings, FPI also includes game-by-game projections for every team, so we’ve decided to check in on the Oklahoma projections for the rest of the season.
According to FPI, Oklahoma boasts the 26th-toughest remaining schedule in college football, a slate that includes four games against teams that are currently ranked in the FPI’s top 35 nationally. FPI gives the Sooners a 49.4 percent chance of winning the Big 12 title and a 20.2 percent chance of winning the remainder of their regular season games.
With that in mind, here’s a look at the Sooners’ game-by-game projections for the rest of the season, according to ESPN’s Football Power Index:
