Oklahoma will host Oklahoma State in the 113th meeting between the two, and the Sooners have a history of winning this rivalry. The Sooners have won 87 of the 112 meetings between themselves and the Cowboys. But, for Oklahoma, this game is an opportunity to continue to show development on defense and put on a show for long list of highly-regarded prospects in the 2019 and 2020 recruiting class.
While the Sooners gave up just 34 points to opposing offenses in games against Texas Christian and Kansas State, they gave up 31 in the first half against a Texas Tech team that is one of the best in the country at moving the ball and scoring. However, getting a clean read on the defense is tricky when you take into account the turnovers by the OU offense and Tech having to play without its best quarterback in the second half where the Sooners held the Red Raiders to just 15 points. Against OSU, the Sooners will look to showcase an improved defense and its dynamic offense.
