Sugar Bowl Matchup

The Sooners stumbled to a 1-2 straight-up start this season, 0-3 against the spread, but have won nine straight since, and covered in their past three. Oklahoma's perfect 9-0 SU conference record earned it a second straight Big 12 championship, and the No. 7 spot on the College Football Playoff rankings.

The point total finished OVER in five of Oklahoma's first seven games this season, with the Sooners failing to cover in four of those contests. Conversely, Oklahoma is 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS in its past five when the point total goes UNDER.

Last year's outright loss in the Orange Bowl ended Oklahoma's four-game SU postseason win streak while favored by five or more points. However, the Sooners have struggled to cover when getting the nod by five or more, going 4-7 ATS in their past 11.

Auburn stumbles into bowl season after wrapping up its campaign on a 1-2 SU run. That halted a solid 6-0 SU surge, which also featured five straight ATS wins. The Tigers are 2-9 SU in 11 as underdogs, but have covered in their past three.

The No. 14 Tigers are an impressive 10-3 SU in their past 13 postseason matchups. But Auburn has produced uneven results in previous Sugar Bowl appearances, going 2-2-1 SU in its past five, averaging just 12 points per game in its past four.

This marks just the second all-time meeting between this two squads, with Oklahoma claiming a 40-22 win over Auburn in the 1972 Sugar Bowl. The Sooners are on a 3-0 SU and ATS run against SEC opponents, while Auburn has won three straight against the Big 12, but is just 1-2 ATS.
