. . . . SEC football. . 464. . 8.

For years, Oklahoma has seemed to be able to plug different QBs into its offense and get great results. Will that continue with Jackson Arnold, who will be the rare homegrown signal caller for the Sooners?

Also, they are counting on Purdue transfer Deion Burks to be their next star wide receiver. Is he ready for that role?

What's more, OU will essentially have a completely new offensive line. Is it ready to hold up in the mighty SEC?

If those questions turn out to be "Yes" for OU, then the offense might be able to match what should be a solid defense. However, that's a lot of questions for a program that annually has lofty aspirations.
