National TV Total of the Week - Rickenbach CFB Rotation #215 Sunday 10* Top Play OVER the total in Oklahoma Sooners vs Houston Cougars @ 7:30 ET - The total is a big one but I like the fact that it has gone from the mid-80s earlier this week down to as low as a 79.5 as of early game day morning. That is giving us extra value in a game where I expect very few defensive stops. Houston coach Dana Holgorsen comes over from West Virginia and the Mountaineers had faced the Sooners in each of the past 7 seasons. The theme in those games was "shootouts" and now that Holgorsen is with the high-flying Cougars, I certainly don't see the "theme" changing! Each of the last 3 meetings between Holgorsen's Mountaineers and the Sooners totaled at least 84 points. Also, he couldn't stop OU throughout his tenure at West Virginia and OU scored 44 points or more in each of the last 5 meetings. Yes the Sooners have a new QB but their offense will be unstoppable against this porous Houston defense. The Cougars allowed 37 points per game last season and only return 4 starters on defense. Offensively Houston returns a ton of talent and averaged 44 points per game. The Sooners are hoping for big improvement on defense but it is going to take time. Keep in mind their new defensive coordinator did have "ups and downs" at Ohio State last season. That said, Oklahoma will still be winning games with their offense and their potent attack averaged 48 points per game last season. The over is 5-2 the past two seasons for the Sooners as a favorite of 21.5 to 31 points. The over is 3-1 the past two seasons when the Cougars are an underdog. Oklahoma, against American Athletic conference opponents, has gone 9-1 to the over their last 10 games so they're certainly not known for "holding back" when it comes to scoring big and putting on a beat-down. The Sooners also are 8-3 to the over in a home game where the total is greater than or equal to 70 so don't let this big number keep you away. This game could get close to triple digits! 10* OVER the total in Oklahoma
