Why Texas A&M Will Win

The college football betting  experts who study the Big 12 Conference will tell you that last year, Texas A&M’s defense, coached by coordinator Tim DeRuyter, thoroughly shut down Oklahoma’s offense. OU quarterback Landry Jones was constantly harassed by an Aggie defense that did the things you have to do against the Sooners and their inconsistent signal caller. Jones is not a good quarterback when flushed out of the pocket and forced to run. He cannot throw very accurately while on the move, and the Aggies made him move all game long. Jones could never settle into a comfort zone and find his favorite receiving target, Ryan Broyles. He completed 36 passes, but he threw 59 of them and was not able to hit big vertical plays in the passing game. Texas Tech managed to make Jones throw on the run earlier this season, when the Red Raiders generated several three-and-outs and managed to do just enough to score a 41-38 upset victory over Oklahoma. Texas A&M’s defense is not a dominating defense, but with the Aggies’ offensive weapons – they rolled up 55 points against Baylor and have scored at least 33 points in every game this season except for a 29-point showing against Oklahoma State – a decent defensive performance (not a spectacular one) could very well be enough to win this contest.

Why Oklahoma Will Win

When you do your homework and assess your sports bet on this game, you can choose to look at last year’s game, but you also need to realize that A&M’s 33-19 victory occurred on A&M’s home field. Landry Jones, Oklahoma’s quarterback, puts up much bigger numbers at home than on the road. Yes, he lost to Texas Tech on Oct. 22, but Jones still led an offense that posted 38 points and generated several big plays. The problem with Oklahoma in that game was its defense, particularly a secondary that was carved up by Texas Tech’s spread passing attack. Texas A&M’s offense is based on the run more than the pass. Oklahoma’s front seven is the stronger part of its defense, and A&M will have to throw the ball to win. Aggie quarterback Ryan Tannehill is mobile and athletic, but he has thrown just three touchdown passes this season away from home. He clearly is just like Jones: He plays a lot better at home than on the road. Oklahoma had won 39 straight home games dating back to the 2005 season opener against TCU. It’s hard to imagine the Sooners dropping two straight games at Owen Field. Actually, it’s almost impossible to conceive of such a notion.

Who Will Win

It’s true – Oklahoma has been a lights-out home team over the years. The Sooners have lost only three home games since Bob Stoops became head coach in 1999. Is Texas A&M good enough to come into Norman, Oklahoma, and steal a win? No. Take the Sooners.
