Its Friday, which means time for my weekly prediction on the Sooners. I gotta tell ya...Im geeked outta my mind to see this game. The Seminoles on Owen Field will be something special.

Heres what to look for. OU threw exclusively to the wide receivers a week ago. Expect to see them incorporate the running backs and tight ends into the passing game against Floirida State.

Bob Stoops said they were saving some offense for the Noles. I think youll see a significant amount of Demarco Murray and Brennan Clay on swing passes out of the backfield and over the middle stuff to the tight ends...Trent Ratterree, James Hanna and maybe even Austin Haywood. A much more diverse attack.

Florida States defense is fast. The Sooners will have to be multiple and keep them guessing to slow them down. Dont be surprised if there are more passes Saturday to running backs and tight ends than to receivers. Although you can bet #85 will get his fair share of touches.

Prediction: Demarco Murray once again goes for 200-plus yards this week, but 100 of them come in the passing game.
