The Sooners would pay $600 for every $100 bet to win the 2020 College Football Championship.

Oklahoma's defense tied a team record with nine sacks and recorded 15 tackles for loss in Saturday's 34-27 win over No. 11 Texas. ranks them number 4 coming into Week 8.

Sooners quarterback Jalen Hurts threw three more touchdowns to CeeDee Lamb, but it was, ahem, the OU defense that was the difference in a 34-27 victory over Texas in the Red River Showdown at the Cotton Bowl. After finishing dead last in the FBS in pass defense in 2018, the Sooners sacked Longhorns quarterback Sam Ehlinger nine times and had 15 tackles for loss. The Longhorns had only 83 yards of offense in the first half, and the score might have been much more lopsided if Hurts hadn't committed two turnovers. The Sooners have beaten the Longhorns four times in their past five meetings. It looks as though OU might have a more-than-capable defense under first-year coordinator Alex Grinch to go with its record-setting offense.
