Updated game analysis from OSGA:
Oregon at Utah – Oregon is a 200 Club explosive offense that runs for 206 yards and passes for 317 yards per game vs. FBS foes led by Heisman contender QB Bo Nix. Utah is passing for just 156 yards per game – among the worst in the nation. The Ducks have scored 42 TD’s and average nearly 8 yards per play to Utah’s 18 TD’s and 5.1 yards per play. Overall, Oregon’s offense averages greater than 200 yards per game more than Utah. The defensive stats profiles are similar for these two teams and among the best in the Pac 12. Utah’s offense has come to life the last two games including last week’s nearly perfectly balanced offensive stats and 482 yards in a 34-32 win over USC. Still, Oregon holds a huge +2.8 net yards per play differential edge over Utah in this matchup as a top defensive team. While the home team is on a 4-0 SU/ATS run in this series, this is a stronger Oregon team that can score 30+ points again for the eighth straight game in a tougher venue with Utah facing their toughest test of the season.
Oklahoma at Kansas – This line went from OKL -10 to -9.5 to -9 to a sharp move Sat. morning -7.5 with money on Kansas. Jayhawks head coach Lance Leipold is 29-10-1 ATS at home in FBS play, including 13-1-1 ATS versus greater than .700 opponents and 12-1-1 ATS when his team is .700 or better. Kansas (5-2) enters this game off a bye week, and the Jayhawks have scored at least 31 points in all games except vs. Texas. The Jayhawks have a solid 200 Club balanced offense rushing for an average of 207 yards and passing for 223 yards. Oklahoma is top-6 in the country passing for 328 yards per game and rush for 168 YPG. The Sooners do sport the No. 1 scoring offense (43 PPG) and No. 1 scoring defense (16 PPG) in the Big 12. But Central Florida’s strong, balanced offense was able to run for 149 and pass for 248 at Oklahoma for a bonus pick winner as a big ‘Dog. Kansas rolled over UCF 51-22 early this month with 400 rushing yards. The Jayhawks are the least penalized team in the Big 12 and have the best Red Zone defensive stats and should make this a competitive contest. Final: Kansas 38, Oklahoma 33
