Oklahoma Sooners at Ohio State Buckeyes Start Time, Odds

Oklahoma Sooners at Ohio State Buckeyes Start Time, Odds

Thousand-yard rushers Joe Mixon and Samaje Perrine are gone, as is Mayfield's favorite target, Dede Westbrook, who accounted for 1,524 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns a year ago.

Both teams woke up in the second half, scoring on each of their first drives.

Before the game, OddsShark had Mayfield at (+300) odds to win the Heisman, behind Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson (+400) and USC quarterback Sam Darnold (+600). Ohio State gained almost 500 yards of offense in that game in Norman.

Instead, they addressed those mistakes and played better in the second half.

Oklahoma 31, Ohio State 16: Ohio State scored on a 32-yard field goal after a 61-yard drive in the fourth quarter.

This is a big game for Lincoln Riley in his debut season. This could have been worse. Senior quarterback J.T. Barrett threw for 304 yards against the Hoosiers after a slow start and had four touchdown passes in last year's victory over Oklahoma, which has won 11 straight true road games. That's the question that Urban Meyer and his offensive coaching staff will need to look deep into in the next couple of weeks and figure out before OSU's title hopes evaporate in a sea of incompletions and defenses daring the Buckeyes to beat them with the pass. The Sooners ended the half with 222 total yards compared to the Bukeyes' 92 total yards.

The 4-year-old was joined by his father, Prince William of Cambridge, who appeared to be assigned royal backpack-holding duties. Duchess Kate of Cambridge, 35, has been struggling with acute morning sickness, forcing her to cancel engagements this week.

The addition of offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson helped the Bucks wear down IN in the opener.

Barrett will be in the crosshairs, but it's not just him. But when it comes down to it, the Buckeyes are best when Barrett and the gang are running the football.

Ohio State isn't even playing MI, but that doesn't stop its fans - including OSU freshman Ethan - from taking jabs at the Wolverines on game day. Remember, Oklahoma stayed in the playoff hunt until the end of last season with two losses.

For Oklahoma, they have a very clear path to the College Football Playoff.

That won't be the case in 2017. In 2014, it lost at home to Virginia Tech and didn't lose again, winning the Big Ten championship, the Sugar Bowl and the national championship. After all, the Sooners use the run game to further open up pass routes and fuel the Air Raid offense.

Last meeting: Ohio State beat Oklahoma 45-24 in Norman on September 17, 2016. This was their night, and it will resonate in November.
