Bedlam matchup: Larry Fedora vs. Brent Venables

Larry Fedora vs. Brent Venables
The Cowboys are ranked eighth nationally in total offense, averaging 250.5 yards rushing and 250.5 yards passing. The Sooner defense is ranked 24th nationally. They fare much better against the run. Their pass defense has slipped to 83rd nationally.

OSU's offense probably would have some success even if Venables' unit was healthy. But with defensive end a major concern — Alan Davis is out and Auston English is questionable — Fedora will test OU's defense with the zone read option that sets up everything else.

The Cowboys should have success on the corners running the ball. If the Sooners bring an eighth defender into the box to defend the run, OSU could have some big pass plays down field.

EDGE: Fedora
