Oklahoma was also just 5-8 against the spread in 2014 while going 9-4 with the over. Stoops is entering his 17th season with the program. He has a 168-44 record in his time with Oklahoma and a 104-28 Big 12 record. Stoops will be looking to ride the legs of his stud running back, Samaje Perine, this year. Perine rushed for 1,713 yards and 21 touchdowns in 2014.

Akron is coming off a 5-7 record in 2014 with a 3-5 MAC record. The Zips were just 3-9 against the spread a year ago while going 8-4 with the under. Akron has failed to cover the spread in its last 4 road games as well. Terry Bowden is in his fourth season as head coach. He has gone 11-25 in his three years and 7-17 in the MAC. The Zips are coming off back-to-back 5-7 seasons. Bowden has a third-year starter at quarterback in Kyle Pohl, but he had just 9 TD passes in 2014 with 8 interceptions.
