Oklahoma was looking forward to a great football campaign in 2009 but it went south early as they lost quarterback Sam Bradford due to injuries and lost plenty of games along the way. BYU knocked out Bradford and it seemed like the Sooners spent the rest of the year looking for their identity. 

The Stanford Cardinal had another impressive campaign and it looks like they will be a mainstay in the college football top 25 as long as they keep playing like this. They have a great offensive year behind Heisman candidate, Toby Gerhart and the season was highlighted with another signature win over USC that ended in a blowout.  

This line jumped off the page at me when it opened at -12 and now has fallen (rightfully so) to just eight points as Oklahoma is a big favorite. It does favor Oklahoma that they are playing this game in Texas but the Cardinal seems to travel well. This line is this high fro a reason it’s because OU has the edge on defense in this game and can stop the vaulted offense of the Cardinal. Stanford Cardinal is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 non-conference games. The Sooners are 13-3-1 ATS in their last 17 games after allowing less than 275 total yards in their previous game and 3-0-1 ATS against the Pac 10. Look for Oklahoma to roll in this game. 

Sun Bowl Pick: Oklahoma -8
