Oklahoma Sooners National Championship Odds
The Oklahoma Sooners were one of the best teams in the country in 2018, led by Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray. However, the star quarterback is gone and so are myriad other pieces from that College Football Playoff participant. Oklahoma will need to reload in 2019 but there are plenty of talented players waiting in the wings, and a prominent quarterback transfer will aim to keep up the dominant play at the position that Murray and Baker Mayfield have shown the past few seasons. Oklahoma is one of the strongest programs in college football and will aim to avoid a step back this season after so much talent left for the NFL.
2019 Oklahoma Sooners at a Glance
Sooners National Championship Odds: 16/1
Sooners Odds To Win Big 12: -125
Sooners Regular Season Win Total: 10.5
Oklahoma was worried about the loss of Mayfield last season when he was the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, but Murray stepped in and was fantastic. Now Jalen Hurts will look to follow that blueprint. The former Alabama quarterback was beaten out in Tuscaloosa by Tua Tagovailoa but has great experience and is still one of the better signal-callers in the country. If Hurts can come close to the level fo play that Mayfield and Murray boasted, the Sooners figure to be in the national championship conversation once again.
Hurts will have some serious playmakers with which to work. CeeDee Lamb is projected to be one of the best wide receivers in the country, and the outside weapons should be solid despite the loss of star Hollywood Brown. The running back duo of Trey Sermon and Kenny Brooks should give defenses headaches. The biggest issue is on the offensive line, as the Sooners have to replace four players who moved on to the NFL.
The Sooners’ defense struggled badly a year ago in the high-flying Big 12 and will need to show improvement because the offense may not be quite as potent. Oklahoma does return nine starters, led by linebacker Kenneth Murray. The Sooners have all five of their starting defensive backs returning but it was a group that had real issues a year ago. Oklahoma has a new defensive coordinator in Alex Grinch and if he can turn around this group the Sooners will be in good shape because of all the offensive firepower it boasts.

The Oklahoma Sooners have a long history of success in college football. They have won seven national championships, the first of which came in 1950 and the most recent of which came in 2000. Oklahoma has one of the most fierce rivalries in college football against the Texas Longhorns. The teams have gone back and forth throughout history with the Sooners boasting the upper hand of late.
Bob Stoops brought Oklahoma to an extremely high level during his long tenure at the school and Lincoln Riley has done a great job building upon it. The Sooners have regularly been in the College Football Playoff race and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see more of the same in 2019. While some programs go up and down Oklahoma has remained among the elite for a long time and does not seem to be falling from that perch any time soon.
