The Oklahoma Sooners take on the Air Force Falcons and are 16.5 point home favorites

Troy Calhoun takes his Air Force Falcons to Norman  to take on Bob Stoops’ Oklahoma Sooners. Though they are a double digit underdog, make no mistake the Falcons are a very talented team that presents match-up problems for many teams because of their option offense. Both teams are 2-0 and both of our college football spread covers as home favorites.

Air Force leads the nation in  rushing with 432 yards a game. They destroyed Northwestern St 65-21 to open the season and last week completely dominated rival BYU 35-14. Quarterback Tim Jefferson passed for only 68 yards, but did throw a TD and a pick. He rushed for 38 yards and another touchdown. The Falcons rolled up 409 rushing yards against BYU, led by Asher Clark with 18 carries for 121 yards. Four Falcon players  scored rushing TD”s. The Falcons were also pretty successful on defense especially against the pass. They held  the Cougars to 88 yards passing and three turnovers. Quarterback Riley Nelson threw for only 73 yards, but was more productive running the ball with 20 carries for 95 yards and a touchdown. Overall the Cougars rushed for 205 yards, led by J.J. Di Luigi with 103 yards and a touchdown. The Falcons need to shore up the run defense or Oklahoma running back DeMarco Murray could rush for huge yards.

People talk all the time about the need for alternative energy sources. well, after the Sooners barely escaped with a 31-24 win at home vs lowly Utah St, the hand wringing from the Sooner Faithful probably could have powered Oklahoma City and maybe even Tulsa. Those questions were put the rest the next week as Oklahoma just whipped Florida St in every phase of the game 47-17 . Oklahoma scored on their first 4 possessions to jump out to a 34-7 lead at halftime. Landry Jones carved up the Florida St secondary for 380 yards and 4 touchdown passes and no interceptions. Ryan Broyles was Jones’ top target with 12 catches for 124 yards and a touchdown. Demarco Murray only rushed for 51 yards but did score two touchdowns. The Oklahoma defense was dominant as they held the Seminoles to 345 total yards and 3 turnovers. Quarterback Christian Ponder had a miserable day going 11/28 for 113 yards. He threw two picks and was sacked 4 times. Back-up E.J. Manuel did throw a touchdown pass on the last play of the game, but his day wasn’t much better. He was 4-8 for 109 yards. The running game wasn’t much better gaining only 132 yards. The Sooner defense will face a much stiffer test when they face Air Force.

The Sooners should not overlook this dangerous Falcon team no matter how well they played against Florida St last week. Oklahoma has given up only 203 total rushing yards so far in two games, but Air Force could have that by halftime if the Sooners aren’t careful. The Falcons offense combines the triple option with the spread. They also run some no huddle, and will be content to gain small chunks of yards as it will keep the Sooners’ offense off the field. It will be a hot and muggy day with temps in the 90’s.  Cramping could be an issue as it was last week  during the FSU-OU game.
