This line definitely makes a bit of sense considering that two pretty evenly-matched teams are facing each other at Oklahoma State, but this could be a decent sign for the Sooners. Oklahoma was a road underdog heading into its game at Ohio State, and OU went into it with a chip on its shoulder and played one hell of a football game. Granted, the nature of this game is a bit different, but the Sooners seem to to do well when doubted.

Additionally, another win as a road underdog — especially a convincing win in which decent defense is played — would really bolster Oklahoma’s national perception. In short, I definitely don’t hate this.
