Game Capsule: Oklahoma (5-1) vs. Notre Dame (7-0)


Kickoff: 7 p.m. CST

Location: Oklahoma Memorial Stadium, Norman, OK

Television: ABC (KOCO 5)

Radio: KOKC-AM 1520, KRXO 107.7 FM (Oklahoma City)

Why Oklahoma Will Win: OU’s ability to score will be the difference maker. The defense should have no problems stopping the Irish offense, but if Landry and Co. find  a rhythm. Watch out, because it could be a long day for Notre Dame.

Why Notre Dame Will Win: Notre Dame has been in some late-game situations where they have needed to win, and if they can manage to keep the score close, the Irish’s experience in the clutch could come in handy. OU has only played one close game this season and failed to win it. We will see if Notre Dame can get OU out fo their comfort zone.

Spread: Oklahoma -11.5

Over/Under: 47.5

Joe’s Prediction: Oklahoma 38, Notre Dame 17
