But the Oklahoma Sooners have had a few offensive explosions of their own this year, and at least one analyst thinks the Sooners have an edge over Alabama.On the Paul Finebaum Show, ESPN Big 12 reporter Jake Trotter claimed that Oklahoma’s offense was better than Alabama’s “by a slight margin.”“I think Oklahoma’s offense is better than Alabama’s offense by a slight margin,” Trotter said.Alabama is averaging 48.6 points per game, while Oklahoma is averaging 49.0 points per game.”I think Oklahoma’s offense is better than Alabama’s offense by a slight margin” – @Jake_TrotterAgree or disagree?— Paul Finebaum (@finebaum) November 12, 2018One key difference between Alabama and Oklahoma has been their defenses. Alabama’s is second in the country in points allowed (12.7) while Oklahoma’s is 83rd, allowing 29.8 points per game.It might not matter if the Sooners have the better offense or not though. If Oklahoma doesn’t make it to the College Football Playoff, they won’t have a chance to prove it against Alabama.The Sooners are currently ranked No. 6 and will need help to make it into the top four.last_img
