Notre Dame vs. Oklahoma odds: Sooners 12-point favorites

A pair of Top 10 schools clash as the Fighting Irish head to Norman to battle the Sooners.


The landscape of the AP Top 25 is primed for change as the No. 5 Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the No. 8 Oklahoma Sooners square off in Week 9. The Sooners are 12-point favorites to knock off the undefeated Irish, according to

Notre Dame (7-0) is coming off a surprisingly close 17-14 win against BYU in Week 8, and after the narrow victory oddsmakers think the Irish's perfect season will come to an end in Norman on Saturday night.

Oklahoma (5-1, 3-1 Big 12) is coming off impressive wins against then-No. 15 Texas in Week 7 and the Kansas Jayhawks in Week 8. The potent Sooners offense will have a tough battle against the stingy defense of the Irish which is the second best in the nation in points allowed, surrendering just 9.4 points per game.

The over/under is currently set at 48.

Kickoff for Saturday's game is scheduled for 7 p.m. CT and the game will be televised on ABC.
