Seven things to know about the Sooners: No. 7

NORMAN, Okla. — Sooners Illustrated is presenting something to know about the team every day over the final seven days until opening kickoff, and here is the seventh and final nugget with the opener tomorrow.

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.
