The Sooners definitely have their work cut out for them today with the Crimson Tide. Despite playing better basketball as of late the Sooners should be a huge underdog today. This is a game that OU will lose if they continue to turn the ball over at a breakneck pace and don't get strong inside play from Longar longer and Taylor Griffin.

It will be interesting to mark OU's improvement since the Villanova game since this is the strongest competition the Sooners have played since that night.

Official Machine Prediction: 67-52 Alabama
