Iowa vs. Oklahoma, 12/30/2011 22:00 EDT, Score: 14 - 31

Point Spread: -13½/-110 Oklahoma

Sportsbook: BookMaker

Result: Win

On the Oklahoma side of the offense the Sooners have had little trouble this season moving the football. QB Landry Jones has put up huge numbers completing 63% passing for 4,302 yards with 28 scores and 14 picks but finished the season poorly. If he wants to be a top draft pick this year for the NFL he needs to shine today
Wide outs Kenny Stills and Jaz Reynolds are both big time players in the receiving core. Of course the biggest star in the receiving core is WR Ryan Broyles but Broyles was lost for the season with an ACL injury. Therefore both Stills and Reynolds must continue to pick up the slack which has not been much of an issue. With so much talent in the passing game, it's hard to imagine anyone slowing down the Sooners offense and they should pick apart this Iowa defense.

The Sooners own the 4th best offense in the nation averaging 532 yards per game and as previously mentioned the offense has been responsible for 40 points per game. I just think Oklahoma's offense is too much here barring excessive turnovers. The Hawkeyes defense has had some horrific performances against the pass this season and that spells disaster in this scenario. Oklahoma will just have to contain McNutt as he is the only real threat that Iowa has.
