NCAAF Week 2: #5 Oklahoma @ #2 Ohio State, Preview and Prediction

Oklahoma comes to Columbus with youngest head coach in FBS

Alabama still AP No. 1 as Penn State, Oklahoma move into Top 5

The game pits the Sooners' Lincoln Riley, who at age 33 is the youngest head coach in the FBS, against veteran Urban Meyer for the Buckeyes.

"He's just one of the best players in America", Meyer said during an eight-minute session with reporters. "You see a lot of mistakes we made against Ohio State that we didn't make against other teams", said Parker. "Which has been a very big point of emphasis with this group".

The way the game played out Mayfield and backup quarterback Kyler Murray almost connected with 25 different receivers. "It's just a couple inches over, but it's a completely different game".

"You gotta go out there every play and you've gotta bring it", linebacker Jerome Baker said. Campbell led all receivers with six receptions for 136 yards and a touchdown. Tight end Mark Andrews caught seven passes for 134 yards and a touchdown, and the Sooners rushed for 196 yards.

But club president Nasser Al Khelaifi , sat beside Mbappe, said PSG had nothing to hide over the transactions and were confident. Al-Khelaifi said: "We respect all of Federation Internationale de Football Association and Uefa's rules".

IN fans reveled in their team's third-quarter lead over Ohio State last Thursday, sending chants of "overrated!" toward the field.

Mike DeBord's offense did a good job of using tempo to maximize matchup advantages. "I told somebody this morning that I don't think that has much of an effect on it".

"It's awesome to see guys like Lee Morris and Grant Calcaterra get there's - I'm extremely happy for them".

Rodney Anderson, Dimitri Flowers, Marcelias Sutton, Jaxon Uhles all had rushing touchdowns in for the Sooners. "I'll translate to the guys that may have a tendency to overdo it a little bit".

"It's a big game", Mayfield said at his Monday news conference. However, Baker Mayfield and numerous Sooner starters got lots of rest after they got pulled from the game at halftime. "I know coach Bob Stoops very well. So we gotta take him away". Unless Florida bounces back to win the SEC East, Michigan might only have one really strong win on its resume by the time November rolls around. Thanks to a ruling in 2016 that allowed Mayfield to regain an extra year of eligibility after transferring to Oklahoma from Texas Tech, where he walked on, he now has a chance to do it three times after he returned for his senior season.

Isaiah Thomas takes defiant tone in Cavaliers press conference
Thomas will be the starting point guard for the Cavs next season, and he should benefit from playing alongside James . "Cleveland. Following the trade, Brady texted Thomas to ask how he was handling the news. "Me on the Cavs is a match made in heaven".

Last Thursday night in Bloomington, we learned all we needed to know about Ohio State's resilience.

Ohio State went to Oklahoma past year and beat the Sooners, 45-24, in a prime-time nationally televised game. Winning this game is a big piece of getting back to the postseason, a notch that made the difference for the Buckeyes last season. Barrett and Mayfield are held to an impossible standard, one that isn't validated until they hold up a national championship trophy.

Alabama, led by sophomore QB Jalen Hurts, is however 8-1 ATS in its last nine games in Week 1.

Given the lingering stigma associated with Big 12 defenses - last week's Texas loss to Maryland and Baylor loss to Liberty didn't help - Mayfield needs a big high-profile nonconference performance against a team like Ohio State to build momentum and avoid having to play catch-up in the race again.
