WATCH: ESPN's David Pollack claims Oklahoma would score 30 points against Alabama
The second College Football Playoff rankings of the 2017 season came out on Tuesday night, and three of the top four teams — No. 1 Georgia, No. 2 Alabama and No. 4 Clemson — pride themselves on elite defenses.
Meanwhile, down at No. 5 is Oklahoma, a team with a terrible defense but one of the best offenses in the country.
During Tuesday’s CFP rankings show on ESPN, analyst David Pollack said he thinks Oklahoma’s offense is being undervalued. As you can see in the clip below, shared by @SoonerGridiron on Twitter, Pollack says he thinks the Sooners would hang 30 points on Alabama’s elite defense:

“If they play Alabama, they’ll score 30 points. That’s the most dominant side of the ball in all of college football.”
Pollack then agrees with fellow analyst Joey Galloway that Oklahoma’s defense is atrocious, but it is interesting that he thinks the Sooners would hang 30 on Nick Saban’s squad.
The Crimson Tide haven’t given up 30 points since last year’s title-game loss to Clemson, though Alabama also hasn’t played an offense like Oklahoma’s yet, either.
