Game of the Week Preview: Oklahoma vs. Missouri

Written by Chris Lomas on October 23, 2010




Prospects

 

DeMarco Murray He is getting some attention as a Heisman candidate. I want to see how he runs between the tackles, his balance and burst.

 

Ryan Broyles Many have Broyles as a late first rounder. His major drawback is his size at only 5-11, 183. I will be looking for how well he gets in and out of his breaks, route running and how he is in the air.

 

Blaine Gabbert Want to see how he plays against the number #1 team, what are his intangibles like, how well does he throw the ball and how far along is his footwork and mechanics.

 

Aldon Smith Coming off the leg injury how effective will he be, is he as fast off the snap of the ball and how well does he play against the run.

 

Outcome

 

Tight game, Missouri has been looking forward to this all year and really would like to show their program can compete with the big boys. The Missouri defense will play with the Sooner offense most of the way, but Oklahoma will prove to be too much in the end. DeMarco Murray makes a play during the game that gives the Sooners the edge in the end. I think the game will be lower scoring then a lot of people maybe 27-21, Sooners.
