Why Oklahoma can cover
Sophomore receiver Marvin Mims is the leading pass-catcher for the Sooners and has reeled in a team-high 30 receptions for 648 yards with four scores. Mims is the best deep threat on this squad and is averaging 21.6 yards per reception, which tops the Big 12 and ranks fourth in the nation. The Texas native has logged three games with more than 100 yards receiving.
In the win against Texas Tech, Mims caught four passes for 135 yards with two scores. Senior receiver Michael Woods II was third on the team with 381 receiving yards and should see more targets with second-leading receiver Jadon Haselwood transferring to Arkansas. Woods, who transferred from the Razorbacks this year, had a team-high of eight grabs for 86 yards vs. West Virginia early in the year. This duo of Woods and Mims for Oklahoma has the talent to light it up on Wednesday night.
Why Oregon can cover
Senior quarterback Anthony Brown was second in the Pac-12 with 2,683 passing yards while tossing 15 touchdowns. Brown also has the athleticism to make plays with his legs. He was second on the team with 637 rushing yards along with nine scores. The New Jersey native logged more than 300 total scrimmage yards in four contests during the regular season.
Junior running back Travis Dye was one of the top rushers in the Pac-12. He was third in the conference in rushing yards (1,118) with 15 rushing scores. Dye scored a rushing touchdown in 10 of the 13 games played. His best outing came in a win against Washington as the California native had 28 carries for 211 yards and a score. The ground game for Ducks has been explosive and can cause problems for the Sooners' defense.
