One of the more intriguing storylines in Alabama’s upcoming matchup against Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl will feature a potent Tide offense going against a stout Sooners defense.
Nick Saban’s offensive attack averaged nearly 450 yards of total offense this season and scored nearly 39 points per game. Meanwhile, Bob Stoops’ troops led the Big 12 in total defense, allowing just 336 yards per contest. That figure that placed them 14th nationally in that category, according to cfbstats.com.
The Sooners will present a stiff test, but there are four reasons why the Tide offense will move the ball and put up points when the two teams collide on Thursday night.
