6. The Sooners will be favored in every game
What comes with the nation's No. 4 ranking? Being the favorite in every contest. The Vegas odds for eight games have been released, with OU labeled as large as a 30-point favorite (at UTEP) to as slim as a four-point victor (at West Virginia). The Sooners are also 6-, 8-, 10-, 12-, 16- and 17-point favorites against Texas, Oklahoma State, TCU, Notre Dame, Kansas State and Baylor, respectively. The other games against Florida A&M, Texas Tech, Kansas and Iowa State will certainly be no different. OU will have the bullseye on its back all year as a favorite.
