NCAA College Football Predictions - Florida State vs. Oklahoma Week 2 Picks & Odds: The Florida State Seminoles visit the Oklahoma Sooners, in a week 2 NCAA college football predictions match-up of high-profile programs from top conferences. The last time these two teams faced off in a college football picks contest was for much higher stakes as OU defeated FSU in the 2000 Orange Bowl for the National Championship. Vegas odds have placed the Sooners as 6 ½ point college football picks favorites at home in a college football line that has moved from 8-points earlier in the week.
#20 FSU (1-0) is coming off a 59-6 college football picks smackdown of Samford in a non-competitive game, while #7 Oklahoma (1-0) won in a college football predictions struggle against Utah State 31-24.
Oklahoma , a top ten team, is expected to compete with the University of Nebraska for the Big 12 title in 2010 but they had their hands full against the Aggies in week one. The Sooners jumped-out to a 21-0 lead in the college football picks match-up before having to hold on to defeat undermanned Utah State.
Senior running back DeMarco Murray leads the Sooners’ attack, which returns 8 starters from an attack that averaged over 30 points a year ago. He was a pivotal player in last weeks college football picks contest, rushing for over 200 yards and scoring two TDs, as a complement to sophomore quarterback Landry Jones. Jones had over 200 yards passing and two TDs in his own right and those two marquee players will play pivotal roles again against the Seminoles in today's week 2 college football predictions match-up.
On defense in last weeks college football predictions contest, the Sooners were torched by Utah State senior quarterback Diondre Borel, who threw for 341 yards, two touchdowns, but also threw three picks. The Sooners’ secondary, considered a strength coming into the college football picks season, will have to play much better against Florida State’s high-flying offense.
You can’t read too much into Florida State’s outmatched week one college football picks opponent, but you have to like senior quarterback Christian Ponder’s chances against OU. Ponder has throw for nearly 5,000 yards and 33 TDs in his career at Florida State and tossed 4 TDs last week. He can hurt the OU secondary, and he has found a new favorite target in fresh wide receiver Quin Roberson, who caught 11 balls in last weeks college football picks battle. Florida State’s defense struggled at times last season, giving-up 30 or more points including 4 games against ranked opponents.
This game could become a college football picks shoot-out and the over/under of 57 1/2 might be low. Oklahoma received a wake-up call in their college football predictions match-up last week against Utah State and that might be bad news for FSU as the Sooners look to cover the spread in a double-digit college football picks win.
