If College Football Had A Playoff: No. 3 Oklahoma State Vs. No. 7 Boise State

New, comment

This game would be just amazing. The over/under would probably set at 80 and that would be conservative. The main difference between these two teams is that the Oklahoma State defense is not very good and ranked 107th in total defense.

However, Oklahoma State makes up for that with a plus 20 turnover margin and getting to the quarterback just over three times a game.

What a matchup this would be and I know this sounds like being an MWC homer, but I think Boise State's defense would be the difference in this game. My final score prediction would be Boise State 48 Oklahoma State 44
