What stands out to me is their balance offensively.

They may be balanced - but the true threat is Baker Mayfield. I have confidence we can slow their run game down but our secondary will have their work cut out for them.

Offensively, I believe we'll run the ball on them as well but if we'll have to take our shots downfield to get them to loosen up.

Keep in mind that the Big 12 isn't really known for their defensive teams outside of K-State and to some extent West Virginia (this season anyway) so these offensive stats don't mean as much as they would otherwise.

Only saw the OK - OkSt game, so that is my onloy reference.  But it seemed to me that OK St was able to run the ball on them effectively, but if you did not put pressure on Mayfield, he tore them apart. 

So we got to run the ball effectively (ball control, clock control) and put pressure on Mayfield (defensive front 7).  At least to me seems like a healthy AU team stands a chance.

I hope we have a solid Offensive game plan and scrap the non-QB trick plays, except maybe a well-timed play to expose a noticed weakness.  Even if we have an injury to the starter at either the QB or RB, trust the guys to run the offense.  If we do this, I like our ability to score on OU, which will be critical in this game.  I think our Defense can hold them to under 30 IF our offense can sustain drives.

I wonder how these numbers skewed with Auburn's lack of offense against UGA and Bama.  I've got to believe Auburn's closer if they don't fall apart with injuries.

After watching the OSU gameMayfield is an arrogant prick. I hope we break him in half. To do that we have to get pressure. We have to be willing to give up a 10-15 yard QB scramble to avoid a 60 yd pass to Westbrook. Carlton Davis has GOT to come up big for us in this game. A healthy Sean White & Pettway allows us to win this game. I would love to beat the brains out of these guys, but I think it's going to be a shootout.

I tried to get a status on Westbrook and couldn't find anything. He may have sustained a concussion vs OK St. so something to watch as the game approaches. I watched some of the OK-OK St. game and OK's D seemed to struggle vs the zone read.

Obvious keyword there...healthy!

Did you know...

The current computer model (via "The Spun") has Auburn and Oklahoma playing to a dead heat 40.4 to 40.4.

Our offensive numbers are also negatively skewed by playing 2 big games with the majority of our guys injured in to some level. They don't indicate a full season of us at full strength.

The game is going to be decided on whether our front 4 can get pressure.  They do and we could destroy them.  

It should also be noted that Oklahoma has a history of choking in their bowl games... not just in 2004.

They sure didn't choke last time they played in the Sugar Bowl against Alabama, when Trevor Knight was their QB.  I expect we'll have our work cut out for us.  I like our chances, though, because it seems that bowl games tend to favor the better defensive teams.

I think we will be in Baker boys face all night long mostly looking down at him when he is knocked down on the ground. No reason why we cannot do this. OU is a decent team in a weak conference compared to the SEC. Baker's dozen could be made up of 3-4 Interceptions and 3-4 sacks 3-4 hurries or more fumbles and maybe a fumble of 2..

The thing that stands out to me is this 

TOTAL DEFENSE
Auburn: 348.4 (5th, 20th)
Oklahoma: 439.8 (5th, 89th)

SCORING DEFENSE
Auburn: 15.6 (3rd, 5th)
Oklahoma: 29.7 (5th, 75th)

If ANY of us told anyone before the season Auburn would have a top 20 defense, and be the #5 scoring defense, one of two things would of been said to us. 

1. Auburn will be in the playoffs 

2. We are lying. 

The offense really let us down this year.  That and our strength and conditioning.

Hard to judge them based on b12 play. I'd hope we get much a lot more pressure on them than they've seen all year. I remember watching the Houston game (only Oklahoma game I've really watched this year) and Houston had 4-5 sacks that game in route to an upset. 

Looking at the stats, it appears tOSU had 0 sacks against them and still won. Still have to imagine our defense will probably give Ok more problems than they've dealt with in a while.

Their stud O vs our stud D

          and

Our poor O vs their poor D.

 

 

Hoping for a toss up and a good game.

Don't think our O braintrust has the ability to bring it.  I know the players do.

This is all against inferior Big 12 schools. Houston treated them very rudely and took it to the Sooners. If they were in the SEC, they would be lucky to come in around 8th place of worse. They would likely be a 7-5 or 6-6 team in the SEC. I think we will treat them worse than Houston did.
