Report: Oklahoma will be missing plenty of players vs. Missouri State tonight

The Sooners open things up in Norman tonight against the Missouri State Bears, but might be missing a bunch of talent while doing so

The Oklahoma Sooners will be missing plenty of bodies tonight for their matchup with the Missouri State Bears according to Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports.

Will this affect the winner? No. Oklahoma is a 46.5 point favorite over MSU, and the Bears were 1-10 last season at the FCS level of college football. But if you’re laying more than six touchdowns while watching this game on a pay-per-view you paid $60 for, it might not be the most fun to see the depth chart blown to smithereens mere hours before kickoff either.

The lack of Covid-19 and injury reporting in 2020 is making betting more challenging than ever, and this is another case of schools keep key information from the public attempting to handicap the games. It is caveat emptor on all games this season until kickoff when it comes to rosters for sure.
