I’m honestly having a hard time with this one, because I don’t think week 1 did either team any favors. It’s hard to get a read on Arizona State with a win over Northern Arizona, but Oklahoma State took their foot off of the gas like I’ve never seen before against Central Michigan, going from 51-15 up in the second half to winning by just two scores. All in all, I’m going with the over here because I just think that Oklahoma State’s going to rip off a lot of big plays like they did against CMU, but I’m still not trusting this Cowboy defense, even against Arizona State. Give me the over here.
