Oklahoma opens at home against Louisiana-Monroe, which beat Arkansas and battled Baylor and should be favored to win the Sun Belt. The Warhawks have all summer to get ready and could do more of the funky stuff they showed to beat the Razorbacks and scare the Bears, like using two quarterbacks. Then again, the one quarterback, Kolton Browning, is pretty good by himself. The Sooners then play host to West Virginia, which might leave them vulnerable a week later when they welcome Tulsa. Oklahoma gets a breather and an off week before traveling to Notre Dame.
