Can Auburn's solid defense keep track of all of Oklahoma's offensive weapons? Our SEC reporters make their picks. - From ESPN (blog)
This could be one of the more exciting matchups of bowl season, and the Sooners will squeak one out on Bourbon Street.
Oklahoma, 31-27 David Ching: If the Auburn we saw in October shows up, with a healthy Kam Pettway and Sean White helping Gus Malzahn's offense reach peak explosiveness, this game will be awesome.
Auburn's defense is excellent and that should give them the edge (the Sooners haven't impressed folks with their defense this year; ripe for Auburn's strong rushing attack to take advantage), but I still remember what Bob Stoops' team did the last time it faced a SEC foe in the Sugar Bowl -- smacked Alabama.
Oklahoma, 34-30 Greg Ostendorf: For those predicting Oklahoma to score a ton of points in this one, keep in mind that Auburn hasn’t given up more than 30 points in a game all season.
Oklahoma, 31-24 Alex Scarborough: If Jarrett Stidham could suit up and play right now, I might think differently.
