Winner Of LSU vs Oklahoma Extremely Clear, Says ESPN
The winner of LSU vs Oklahoma is very clear, says ESPN.
Less than a week removed from the semifinals showdown between the Tigers and Sooners, the worldwide leader in sports is making it very clear who is going to win.
According to its computer model, ESPN has the likelihood of LSU emerging victorious at 67.3 percent.
Essentially the belief is that Joe Burrow and Co. have a two times better chance of winning than Oklahoma.
Is that position a fair one? It is certainly hard to argue with.
LSU has won all of its games this year in fairly dominant fashion. Beyond that, the SEC has been arguably the best conference in all of college football this year, which makes the Tigers’ record all the more impressive.
Oklahoma, meanwhile, needed to get really lucky to secure a spot in the College Football Playoffs.
First the Sooners needed Alabama to lose twice, once to LSU and once to Auburn. Then they needed Baylor to choke twice. Finally, they needed LSU to knock Georgia out in the SEC Championship Game.
All of that isn’t to say that Oklahoma is a bad team. It just stands to reason that LSU would be the favorite going into their outing.
Will Oklahoma ultimately be able to shock the world and advance past LSU?
We’ll get an answer once and for all come December 28.
