Why Oklahoma Will Win
When you go over your next play, you should be able to come to the conclusion that the Sooners can score a lot in this contest, keeping pace with the Aggies. The Sooners are as explosive an offense as there is in the Big 12, which is saying something. The Sooners are led by senior quarterback Landry Jones (27 touchdowns compared to only nine interceptions).
Jones has a plethora of weapons at his disposal: Wide receivers Kenny Stills, Sterling Shepard, Justin Brown, and Jalen Saunders comprise one of the deepest receiving corps in the nation. Stills (73 catches, 11 touchdowns) is the bell cow, the man Jones looks for in big situations. Brown (62 catches, four touchdowns), the Penn State transfer, is the steady possession receiver, while Saunders and Shepard both offer big play potential (both averaging over 14 yards per reception).
The Sooners, however, have a special weapon that only adds to the explosiveness of their offense: sophomore backup quarterback and short yardage back Blake Bell. The “Belldozer” is Tim Tebow on steroids in a physical sense. At 6-6 and 254 pounds, Bell has rushed for 11 touchdowns and is a near-guarantee to get that much-needed yard to keep drives going or put the Sooners in the end zone.
The Sooners will likely need to crack the end zone a lot if they want to beat Johnny Football. The thing to realize, though, is that they're equipped to do just that.
