    Interested in the opinions from our fellow members about this matchup in Norman, OK. College Gameday and a Top 10 matchup. It's going to be crazy!

    It's going to be crazy how many tantrums Kelly throws on the sideline.

    This. I'm expecting 38-10 OU. Not trying to be a homer. I just think Notre Dame is highly overrated for beating a bunch of mediocre B1G teams. 17-14 over BYU?

    Couldn't agree more. They are barely escaping with wins every week. I just don't think they've played a team like OU yet despite playing a decent schedule.

    13-14 BYU over Oklahoma?

    And let's not talk about you losing Bradford, Notre Dame started their backup quarterback for the entire game this past week. (y)

    I do expect OU to win, but I think Notre Dame is very capable of beating the Sooners. From watching OU over the years it seems the teams that matchup best with you guys are the most physical. Our team is gritty as fuck this year. We've rushed for 200+ yards in three straight games over some decent defenses, and we have an SEC caliber front seven.

    Some Sooner players have already talked some trash and the talking heads are letting everyone know how overrated we are and that we'll get killed. Seems like a classic Notre Dame week to me. :)

    I knew we had a lot of Sooner fans up in here, and just wanted to get a pulse on their perspective coming into this week. Gratzi

    Wasn't that like 3 seasons ago? How is that even relevant?

    It's relevant because playing close a BYU team with your backup quarterback doesn't mean anything, and Sooner fans should know that best.

    Yea but both of Notre Dame's QB's are mediocre, Sam Bradford was the #1 pick in the draft. BYU went 11-2 that year. This year BYU has is 4-4 with wins over 4 terrible teams.

    Notre Dame is one lucky team this season. If OU doesnt roll them, I will be shocked.

    I do agree with this point. All I am saying if you simply look at 17-14 over BYU to determine how good ND is this year you may want to consider the entire resume.

    Every team has had success running the football on Oklahoma, even the UTEP's and the Kansas' of the world. The Big XII does not play good defense. ND will bring a solid rushing attack and a good defense, and that will give us a good chance if we can get some pressure on Landry and avoid losing the turnover battle.

    If a team is to win a blowout, it would definitely be the Sooners. We would have to play bad and you guys would have to play great for that to happen IMO.

    Neither did UTEP or Kansas. Texas Tech scored one TD against our first team D.

    I think OU also but a team that finds a way to win has that capability. Giants Super Bowl as a reference. Besides that is why they play the game

    I am glad. This team has heard all week how bad they are and how we have no shot despite being 7-0.

    There's been enough bulletin board material for an entire season for this week's game. Advantage = Notre Dame.

    Yeah, I guess the beatdown OU put on Texas skewed the spread in their favor.

    WVU 48 Texas 45
    Texas Tech 41 WVU 14
    OU 63 Texas 21

    Translation: Texas sucks, and has an AWFUL defense. I think Texas Tech is overrated as well.

    You can also match what K State did to OU and what K State did to WVU

    I cannot wait for this game regardless of the outcome. The atmosphere is going to be nuts and we are going to learn a lot about Notre Dame and Oklahoma.
