Florida Atlantic Owls
The Florida Atlantic Owls are coming off an 11-3 season that saw the program post an 8-0 record in Conference USA. 2017 marked Lane Kiffin’s first year at the helm and it’s safe to say he won over the fans.

The Sooners are also coming off a highly successful season. Last season Oklahoma turned in a 12-2 record that included an 8-1 record in Big 12 play. That conference record lead to a 1st place ranking in the Big 12’s standings. Naturally, the Sooners would get an invite to the Big 12 Championship Game. There they would face No. 10 TCU in a landslide of a victory, 41-17. Afterwards, Oklahoma was put to the task in the Rose Bowl. Although they had high hopes of finishing the season on a high note, the Sooners fell short against No. 3 Georgia. However, considering the game had to going into second overtime, it was one of the best bowl games of the postseason.
Players to Watch: Kyler Murray (359 passing yards, 3 TD, 0 INT), Rodney Anderson (1,161 rushing yards, 13 TD, 6.2 AVG), and Marquise Brown (1,095 receiving yards, 7 TD, 57 REC).
