LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) - The Oklahoma Sooners will head into the 2014 college football season with the best odds to win the 2015 FBS title among Big 12 teams.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Sooners are currently 12/1 to win the 2015 FBS college football championship. As previously mentioned, those odds are the best among the Big 12 teams and sixth-best overall behind Florida State (11/2), Alabama (6/1), Oregon (8/1), Auburn (9/1) and Ohio State (10/1).

The Sooners return seven starters on offense including quarterback Trevor Knight, who was highly impressive in the team's bowl win against Alabama last season. Oklahoma also returns four of five starters along the offensive line including both tackles (Tyrus Thompson and Daryl Williams) and both guards (Adam Shead and Nila Kasitati). Thanks to players like Williams, OU's offensive line is a definite strength, even though the unit did lose All-American center Gabe Ikard.

Oklahoma will also be loaded in the trenches on the other side of the ball, as Chuka Ndulue, Jordan Wade and 2013 All-Conference defensive end Charles Tapper return up front. In fact, the front seven returns all seven starters, including linebackers Dominique Alexander, Frank Shannon and Eric Striker. The question mark might be in the secondary as the team has to replace two starters.

The other issues surrounding this team are at running back and receiver. The top three backs from a year ago are gone and the depth at wideout is thin. The offensive line is a strength but unless some of the new starters at the skill position help take pressure off of Knight (or Blake Bell), then Oklahoma could fall short of making the four-team playoff in college football. But it's hard not to like the Sooners' chances with what they've built in the trenches.
