UTEP vs Oklahoma Prediction & Pick
UTEP has a game under their belt, but it was a very disappointing 31-13 home loss to North Texas last week in a pick 'em contest. The Miners were outscored 17-0 in the second half and unable to establish a running game. But UTEP has an established front line and playmakers on offense.
Oklahoma's defense struggled last year and wasn't consistent. Now they have new coaches along with new players in several spots. Quarterback Dillon Gabriel has reunited with Jeff Lebby at Oklahoma, who was his offensive coordinator during his freshman season at UCF. Gabriel is expected to thrive after passing for over 3600 yards and 29 TDs last season.
Final Score Prediction: Oklahoma: 41 | UTEP: 17

Sure Oklahoma is expected to roll and has significantly more talent. Plenty of pundits are calling for a Sooners blowout. But this line was inflated and UTEP can play better than they showed last week.
