Oklahoma will open their much anticipated season at home against the Missouri State Bears. Lincoln Riley and company will attempt to win their first playoff game as they have lost in the first round the last three years.
Missouri State Bears
Missouri State is coming off an abysmal season where they went 1-10. Bobby Petrino will come in as the new head coach of the Bears in 2020 after being fired from Louisville in the 2018 season. He will try to rejuvenate this Missouri State team as they haven’t had a winning season since 2009 when they went 6-5.
Southern Miss transfer Jaden Johnson was recently named the starting quarterback for the Bears in this upcoming season. Johnson red-shirted in his first year at Southern Miss so he has yet to appear in a game in his college football career. Johnson was a duel-threat QB in high school and got ranked as high as a four-star recruit. He had offers from Louisville and Georgia but ultimately chose a smaller school as he would get more playing time.
Offensively, the Bears averaged 15.5 points per game and 284.2 yards in 2019, which isn’t great so hopefully, Johnson can make an impact on those numbers.
The Bears need to tighten up defensively in 2020 as they were allowing over 35 points per game. They allowed opponents to gather an average of 442.6 yards per game in 2019 and that has to come down if they want to remain competitive in these games as their offense can’t keep up.
Lincoln Riley will have another five-star recruit come into the quarterback room as it is Spencer Rattler’s time to shine in Norman. Rattler was previously the #1 high school quarterback recruit in the country in 2018 before he committed to the University of Oklahoma. He red-shirted his freshman year, so he could learn from second-round draft pick Jalen Hurts who is now a back-up for the Eagles.
The people in Norman have high hopes for Rattler as Riley is already making a lot of noise about the freshman. In his very limited action, last season Rattler threw for seven completions on eleven attempts and got one TD in garbage time.
OU is going to have to replace the production of a couple of skill players as well as they lost Ceedee Lamb to the draft. Lamb was a 1000-yard receiver in his junior for Riley and led the team with 15 touchdown catches.
Defensively, is where the Sooners struggle. Losing senior Kenneth Murray to the draft is going to be a big blow in OU’s run-stopping game as he was a top-linebacker in the country last season.

Free Week 2 NCAA Football Pick:
I don’t like a side in this one as giving 42.5 points is way too much. But I do love the over here as Spencer Rattler is going to show the world what he’s got. I think Oklahoma easily puts up over 50 points in this one as Missouri surrendered over 440 yards a game to bad offenses. I can’t imagine how Lincoln Riley is going to carve them up on Saturday, but it is sure going to be a blood bath.
