UL Monroe had an easy win over an FCS opponent, while the Sooners come into the game looking to rebound after a loss to Houston.
A win against Southern got UL Monroe off to a good start, Oklahoma was shockingly defeated by a Houston team in contention for the College Football Playoff.
UL Monroe Warhawks
Quarterback Garrett Smith had an up and down game.
Throwing 2 touchdowns, 2 interceptions, and rushing for 150 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries. His athleticism can extend plays, but he has to avoid the costly mistake.
Ben Luckett had 110 yards and a score on the ground.
The running game will be the key to keeping the Oklahoma offense off the field. I don’t see the offensive line opening up enough halls to give their defense time to rest.
The defense has a tough matchup against Samaje Perine. He can easily top 250 yards on the ground if the coaching staff stays committed to the run.
UL Monroe gave up 160 yards on the ground to RB Lenard Tillery.
Baker Mayfield had a good game against Houston.
He threw for over 300 yards and 2 Td’s without an interception. For the Sooners to rebound after this loss he needs to have a great season.
He should be able to have more time in the pocket and find his receivers without much effort.
The Houston defense shut down Oklahoma’s vaunted running attack, and I expect Samaje Perine and Joe Mixon to do a lot of damage early and often again UL Monroe.
Each player can easily reach over 150 yards on the ground. I also expect Joe Mixon is always a threat receiving the ball out of the backfield.
The Oklahoma defense did a great job containing Greg Ward on the ground, but the passing defense gave up 7 catches and 125 yards to Steven Dunbar.
Expect the special teams to play much better this week after giving up a kick six.

Free Week 2 NCAA Football Prediction
Could Oklahoma be looking ahead to the week 3 matchup against Ohio State?
I don’t think Bob Stoop’s team will come out flat this week, but it won’t be similar to the scores many big time programs put up against weaker foes in week 1.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: UL Monroe ATS and the Under
The running game will set the tempo early, and Baker Mayfield will carve up the UL Monroe defense. This one will get ugly quickly, but Oklahoma’s offense won’t be as dominate as we expect.
The easy pick would be Oklahoma, but I’m not sold on their dominance after a tough week 1 loss.
