Here is a look at how The Oklahoman's coverage crew for OU vs. Louisiana-Monroe picked Saturday's game:
RYAN ABER, OU beat writer
* OU 41, ULM 20: The Warhawks put up some points but not enough to stay in the game doing into the fourth quarter. OU's running backs carry the load as the Sooners ease Trevor Knight in as starter.
JENNI CARLSON, Columnist
* OU 38, ULM 17: Louisiana-Monroe opened eyes last season, but the truth is, its defense isn't all that great. Trevor Knight puts up 300-plus yards of offense.
JASON KERSEY, OU beat writer
* OU 42, ULM 28: Trevor Knight makes a few forgivable rookie mistakes, but displays his enormous potential and athleticism. ULM's offense puts up points on a vulnerable OU defense, but not enough to hang in Norman.
BERRY TRAMEL, Columnist
* OU 41, ULM 21: Trevor Knight will show enough to keep fans optimistic and Louisiana-Monroe at bay.
