Oklahoma football: Over/under win total set at 10
DraftKings sports book has given over/under totals for college football teams in the regular season. OU has been given 10, and OSU has been given six.
Alabama and Clemson each were given 11, so an 11-1 season would be a wash; 12-1 would be a winner.
The only other team above a 10 is Georgia, at 10.5.
The only other Big 12 team listed is Texas, at 9.5.

Here are the schools listed, with my thoughts:
Oklahoma 10: Go over. If the Sooners make the Big 12 title game, they would have to go 9-4 to make the over a loser.
Texas 9.5: Go under. The Longhorns play LSU in September, plus could face the Sooners twice. Getting to 10 is absolutely doable for the ‘Horns, but 9-4 would not be a bad season.
Oklahoma State 6: Over. The Cowboys were underachievers last year and still got to 6-6 in the regular season. A 5-7 record seems unlikely.
Alabama 11: Go over. For over to be a loser, the Crimson Tide would have to go 10-2, then either not make the SEC title game or lose the SEC title game. Does either of those seem likely.
Georgia 10.5: I guess over, but I wouldn’t touch it. The Bulldogs host Notre Dame and play at Auburn, plus Florida in Jacksonville. The ‘Dawgs could go 10-2 and not make the SEC title game.
Florida 9: Under. The Gators play Miami and Florida State in the non-conference, plus Auburn and LSU in crossover conference games.
Auburn 8: Over. The Tigers play Oregon in Arlington, but have three automatic victories in non-conference. The SEC schedule is tough, but 7-5 seems unlikely.
Mississippi State 8: Under, though I wouldn’t touch it. The schedule is easy – Kansas State, Tennessee, Kentucky, plus the SEC West – but the Bulldogs lost a lot of players.
Texas A&M 7.5: Over. But it’s going to be close. The Aggies play at Clemson, at Georgia and at LSU, plus hosting Alabama and Auburn
Tennessee 7: Over. The Volunteers have an easy schedule – four non-Power-5 home games in the non-conference,
Clemson 11: Over. I might go over on 12.
Miami 8.5: Under. The Hurricanes’ schedule isn’t daunting, but Miami has won more than eight games in a regular season only twice in nine years.
Florida State 7.5: Over. I mean, do we really think the Seminoles could slip to 7-5, no matter what kind of a mess they have?
Ohio State 10: Over. The Buckeyes’ marquee non-conference foe is Cincinnati.
Michigan 9.5: Under, but I’m not convinced. The Wolverines play Notre Dame, plus Iowa and Wisconsin from the Big Ten West.
Penn State 9: Under, but I wouldn’t touch it. The Nittany Lions have an easy schedule – Pitt is the non-conference opponent.
Wisconsin 8.5: Over. For two reasons. 1) Easy non-conference schedule; and 2) It’s Wisconsin.
Michigan State 7.5: Over. The Spartans have a reasonably tough schedule, but 8-4 doesn’t seem like a mighty assignment for Michigan State.
Washington 10: Under. The Huskies play Eastern Washington, Hawaii and Brigham Young. So the schedule is easy. But these are Pac-12 teams we’re talking about.
Washington State 10: Under. But the Cougars play no Power-5 opponents in non-conference.
Oregon 9: Under, but no confidence. The Ducks play Auburn in non-conference, plus at Southern Cal in a Pac-12 crossover.
Utah 8.5: Over. The Utes play in the weaker Pac-12 South and have no Power-5 opponents in non-conference.
Southern Cal 7.5: Over. The schedule is tough, but to miss, the Trojans would have to go 7-5.
