SDS will break down all 10 SEC bowl games from a numbers perspective, and here is a look at this year’s Sugar Bowl between Alabama and Oklahoma.
Oklahoma is fundamentally sound; the stats show that. They don’t have as much talent as Alabama, but they are pretty comparable to the Tide. Obviously, Oklahoma will have to generate some type of passing game to hang with Alabama; they won’t be able to just line up and run it down the Tide’s throat like Auburn. The Sooners have allowed opponents to score over 90 percent in the redzone, while Alabama has allowed opponents to score just 64 percent.
