The Pick

Oklahoma +4.5

The Cowboys are still in the College Football Playoff hunt. This is one of Mike Gundy’s best defensive teams ever, and the game is in Stillwater. Everything is pointing to Oklahoma State winning. And yet, Oklahoma always find a way to show up when the moment is biggest. Lincoln Riley’s team has looked bad offensively this season but is only a few results away from falling backward into the playoff. The Sooners should cover the spread even if they don’t win the contest.
