Week 2 brings us a very intriguing Top 25 match up as the #19 Oklahoma Sooners travel to Tennessee to take on the #25 Volunteers Saturday night.
The game not only has bragging rights on the line, but also will prove to be very important if either team hopes to make a push at either a BCS game of even the BCS Playoff.
Both teams got tune ups in Week 1 against MAC schools, but now have a much difficult task in front of them.
Kickoff is set for 6:00 PM EST in Tennessee.
The Sooners bring in a completely different offensive scheme this season and the nation got a bit of a look at that last week when the Sooners took on Akron.
Oklahoma brought in a new offensive coordinator this past off season in Lincoln Riley. His method has always been a massive air attack and we saw a lot of balls down field and over top in for Oklahoma last week.
The Sooners racked up 539 yards of offensive, which was one of the best offensive outbursts in Week 1.
Oklahoma had a bit of a QB controversy Riley and the coaches had to figure out in camp and ultimately gave the start to Baker Mayfield. They shouldn’t be regretting any part of that as Mayfield threw for 388 yards and 3 touchdowns in the win.
RB Joe Mixon even got into the mix, but ironically threw the air. He had 3 receptions for 115 yards, which included a 76 yard touchdown pitch and catch.
Tennessee isn’t used to being in the Top 25. In fact, the last time they had a win as a Top 25 participant was back in 2008 when they defeated Wisconsin in the Outback Bowl.
The Volunteers finally put an end to that long drought after their Week 1 shootout win over the Bowling Green Falcons. Unlike the Sooners, the Volunteers used a massive ground attack to put the Falcons in dismay.
Tennessee rushed for 6 touchdowns and had both RBs gain over 100 yards in the win.
Jalen Hurd led the way with 123 yards and 3 touchdowns just in the first half alone. Alvin Kamara, not to be outdone, rushed for 144 yards and a pair of touchdowns all on 15 carriers.
QB Joshua Dobbs also contributed in a big way as he had 205 yards and 2 touchdowns passing along with 89 yards and rushing touchdown.

This has the potential to break out into a massive high scoring game. Even though they both played MAC teams in Week 1, they both dominated their respective opponents and showed some serious offensive fire power.

Oklahoma wastes no time heaving the ball down the field and if Bowling Green had success against the Volunteer secondary, so can the Sooners. As for the Volunteers offense, their success all depends on the offensive line pushing back the Sooners front. If they can, they’ll have no problem repeating their Week 1 performance.
