Oklahoma is obviously the safe and easy pick to win the Big 12. Until proven otherwise, they’re the best team in the conference.
Lincoln Riley has Spencer Rattler under center, his offense is straight fire and we have no reason to believe they won’t dominate like always.
Riley is a hell of a coach and the Sooners are an elite program. Right now, they’re the crown jewel of the Big 12, and I’m not sure there’s a close second.
Speaking of gaps in talent, Texas better have a huge year or Tom Herman is going to likely be looking for a new job.
College football is simply better when Texas is relevant, and the Longhorns haven’t been relevant in years. If they don’t show up and show out in 2020, then huge changes need to be made. It’s that simple.
I can’t wait to see how it all unfolds!
