The Huskies are 10-1 ATS in their last 11 road games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Sooners are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a straight up win. The over is 7-3 in Huskies last 10 overall. The under is 5-1 in Sooners last 6 home games.

The Houston Baptist Huskies have taken their licks this season with a tough schedule, but they're starting to compete and you'd think games against TCU, Arizona State, SMU and North Texas would prepare them for a spot like this. The Oklahoma Sooners are clicking on all cylinders, but motivation could be an issue, especially with Texas Tech and West Virginia on deck. Possible lookahead spot for the Sooners. Give me Houston Baptist and the points.
