The MAC travels to the Big 12 for non-conference fun in this Week 2 matchup.
Kent State will take on the University of Oklahoma at 7 pm ET on Saturday in Norman at Oklahoma Memorial Stadium.
Junior quarterback Dillon Gabriel was great in his debut, completing 15-23 passes and finishing with 233 yards and three total touchdowns, leading the Sooners to a 45-13 victory over UTEP in Week 1. With a newly established regime, Oklahoma hopes to keep the momentum moving forward in this week’s matchup.
The Golden Flashes are coming off a disappointing 45-20 loss to the University of Washington and face a tough task trying to right the ship in Norman. Although they only scored 20 points in Week 1, Kent State was fifth in the nation with 493.4 total yards per game last season and hopes to get back into shape. Redshirt junior wide receiver Dante Cephas had 1,240 yards and nine touchdowns on 82 receptions last season and is one to watch.

Kent State failed to cover on the road in a payday game in Washington, losing by 25 last weekend. Now they face an Oklahoma team fresh off a 32-point win against a 2021 bowl team in the UTEP Miners. Not very good, Bob.
New Sooners quarterback Dillon Gabriel was simple and efficient in his first game at Norman. I expect him to include himself more in the offense as the season goes on. The Sooners’ running game produced an expected point aggregate of 15.24, which is absurdly good. Look for more of the same this weekend.
This game is a matchup nightmare on paper. I just don’t see how Kent State keeps this close.
TO CHOOSE: Oklahoma (-32.5 on FOX Bet) wins by over 32.5 points
