Big 12 writer says Oklahoma's offense is slightly better than Alabama's
When you look at the numbers, Oklahoma and Alabama’s offenses are both elite. Oklahoma has the nation’s No. 2 scoring offense, averaging 49 points per game while the Crimson Tide are No. 3, averaging 48.6 points per contest (both behind No. 1 Utah State, which averages 51.3 points per game).
However, many would point to the stronger defenses in the SEC as a reason to say Alabama has a better overall offense than the Sooners.
On Monday’s episode of “The Paul Finebaum Show,” though, ESPN Big 12 reporter Jake Trotter said he thinks the Sooners are slightly better with the ball in their hands:

Many projections have Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa as the Heisman frontrunner, followed by Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray.
No matter how you slice it, both offenses are elite, but which do you think is the better offensive attack?
