There are two bowl games on December 29 that pitted a pair of teams with high expectations for the preseason but disappointing results, which is what we see in the Alamo Bowl game between Oregon ( 10-3) and Oklahoma (10-2).
Both teams were quality teams, which is why they won 10 games each and made it into the Top 20, but the way they ended the season left a bitter taste in the mouths of their fans and fans alike. college football fans. Both teams have lost two of their last three games, not being in the playoff contention.
Both teams also need to gain positive momentum ahead of the offseason as they prepare to welcome new head football coaches.
Here are our staff’s predictions for the match.
BRYAN RISKELL, EDITOR
Prediction: Oklahoma 31, Oregon 20
It’s not just that Oregon has lost two of their last three games, it’s how bad they looked losing those games. Utah embarrassed Oregon in both clashes, both physically and on the scoreboard. Oregon’s offense failed in both games, and while Oklahoma is nowhere near a heavyweight on defense, I expect Bob bends over so that the team is emotionally ready to play.
Oregon’s pass defense has been inconsistent all season, and it doesn’t match Oklahoma’s offense, at least not what I expect to see offensive on sooner. first year quarterback Caleb williams had the chance to pull himself together after a tough end to the season and I expect him to enter the offseason with a solid performance. Oregon will struggle to stop it starless Kayvon thibodeaux.
Oregon OC Joe Moorhead will look to come out on a high note, but it’s hard to predict what we’ll get from the quarterback Anthony brown. If he plays well, the Ducks could win this game, especially if the running game begins. If Brown doesn’t play well, the Ducks will end the season with another loss.
VINCE DEDARIO, FOOTBALL ANALYST
Prediction: Oklahoma 27, Oregon 17
What can you expect from two teams without a head coach? Both of these teams had national title hopes until about six weeks ago and now they’re both on the hunt for an identity. Oregon will be deprived of its best defensive player in Kayvon thibodeaux who retired and entered the NFL Draft. I feel like there are more questions than answers when it comes to these two teams coming into the game. I still love offensive guns for Oklahoma and with Bob bends over on the sidelines, I don’t think he’ll allow Oklahoma players to give less than their best. I think the Sooners get the Ducks at the end based on the clashes.
SHAUN DAVIS, ESPN CHICAGO
Prediction: Oklahoma 34, Oregon 24
The sound of these two teams facing off before the start of the season was most certainly seen as a college football playoff game with two renowned coaches and players on both sides. Salvation. Lincoln riley and Mario cristóbal both have chosen to move away from playoff-caliber concerts for greener pastures. Bob bends over will take the reins on the sidelines of the OU, while passing the match coordinator Bryan mcclendon gets temporary work for Oregon.
Entrance to Oklahoma Caleb williams Ranked as the No. 2 quarterback in the country after high school, and he lived up to expectations, throwing for 1,670 yards, 18 touchdowns and just four interceptions while adding 408 yards and six rushing scores. that of Oregon Anthony brown threw for 2,683 yards and 15 touchdowns, but his inconsistency plagued the offense for most of the season. Brown will have to match Williams and that’s a tough job.
RYAN ROBERTS, RISENDRAFT
Prediction: Oregon 28, Oklahoma 14
This Oklahoma team is in transition. It is difficult to assess what they will look like. I guess depth will be a major issue throughout this contest. At full power and in a good situation it would be an easy choice in Oklahoma here, but the Ducks are able to take advantage of tough times for the Sooners.
