Staff picks: Notre Dame vs. Oklahoma 

October, 26, 2012
Oklahoma 24, Notre Dame 12
The Sooners are playing their best ball of the season, and at the perfect time. The Irish will give OU problems in the trenches, but OU's passing game with Landry Jones and his array of receivers will be the difference. If the Sooners can get to 20 points, it will be difficult for an average Notre Dame offense to keep pace, especially with the way the Sooners have been dominating defensively. I don't think the Irish get there, and that's why I'm picking OU to win.
