Louisiana Tech vs Oklahoma College Football Preview

Louisiana Tech vs Oklahoma college football

The Louisiana Tech Bulldogs will be travelling to Norman, Oklahoma to face the University of Oklahoma Sooners. Last season the Bulldogs were blown away by N.C. State and prospects don’t look so good this year. Oklahoma is coming off of a 11-2 season and an impressive win over Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide in the Sugar Bowl. During 2013 the Sooners were struggling on which quarterback to start, Trevor Knight or Blake Bell. After Knight’s impressive performance in the Sugar bowl there is no doubt on who the starter will be for 2014. Knight was able to throw touchdown passes and scramble away from the pocket for positive gains. Although the Sooners lost their best wide receiver in Jalen Saunders, head coach Bob Stoops ensures there are others waiting to take his place.

Keys for Louisiana Tech Bulldogs:

  • Turnovers killed Louisiana Tech last season, and if sophomore starting QB Ryan Higgins throws 13 interceptions, like he did in 2013, then the Bulldogs are in trouble.
  • Running back Kenneth Dixon already has 31 touchdowns on his NCAA career, and he is looking to add more

Keys for The University of Oklahoma:

  • Trevor Knight is the point of emphasis for the Sooners for the 2014 year. His Sugar Bowl performance proved that what he was capable of not only to himself, but to his teammates as well. With Blake Bell moving to tight end and Sterling Shephard playing all the wide receiver positions, the Sooners will have a solid core of receivers.
  • The loss of Damian Williams, Brennan Clay, and Roy finch puts Keith Ford at the top of the running backs list. Ford only had 23 carries last season, but he was fairly impressive during his performances, which gave sooner fans national championship hopes.

NO KEY INJURIES TO DATE

–Favorite/Odds: Oklahoma by 37.5 points

On occasion the Sooners are highly touted in the preseason, only to come out and struggle in the first few games. However, usually those Oklahoma teams are made up of upperclassmen veterans mostly, this year the Sooners are young guns ready to prove themselves to the nation Louisiana Tech will only be able to stop the bleeding if they find a way to limit their turnovers to the talented Oklahoma defensive backs.
