Peach Bowl: Oklahoma vs. LSU 

When: 3:00 PM CT, Saturday, December 28, 2019

Where: Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta, Georgia


       Oklahoma earned the final berth in the playoffs and the Sooners' reward is facing likely Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow and the explosive LSU offense. 

There's been a lot of talk about Oklahoma's defense being improved under Alex Grinch, and while that's true, keep in mind the Sooners' last three games came against offensively challenged TCU (62nd in total offense), Oklahoma State with a backup quarterback, and Baylor with a backup quarterback for two quarters. 

Now Oklahoma's defense will face an LSU offense in the Peach Bowl that ranks second in yards (560.5) and points (48.7).

While the national media is gushing over the Sooners' defense, their path to an upset is to outscore LSU. The Tigers have recorded at least 36 points in every game but one this season, so it's doubtful Oklahoma will slow them down. The Sooners enter with the nation's top-ranked offense and are putting up 44.3 points per contest themselves.

LSU's defense has been exploited at times this season, allowing 38 points to Texas, 41 to Alabama, and 37 to Ole Miss. For Oklahoma to cover 10 points and be in a position to pull a potential upset, quarterback Jalen Hurts will need to have a big game and avoid turnovers. For as good as Hurts has been this year, he's turned the ball over five times in his last three contests.

This is the first time all season the Sooners will be underdogs. LSU has been a favorite in all but one game (Alabama), going 8-5 against the spread. One key stat to watch in this matchup: Oklahoma's defense allows opponents to score 90.6% of the time in the red zone, while the Tigers score 96% of the time inside the 20-yard line. LSU will move the football but the Sooners will have to force some field goals to stay in the game. I don't see it happening. The Tigers' offense will have its way and while Oklahoma will score, LSU will score more. The Tigers at -10 and LSU's team total over should be in play here.
