Two superb freshman QBs take center stage  tonight in the 2023 Alamo Bowl on Thursday, as the Oklahoma Sooners, the No.5-ranked offense in the country, face off against an Arizona Wildcats unit that's won six consecutive games – a run that includes four victories over ranked opponents.

Oklahoma vs Arizona is live tonight on ESPN in the U.S. and Sky Sports in the U.K.. Don't worry if you're away — you can watch Oklahoma vs Arizona from anywhere with a VPN.

With Dillon Gabriel entering the transfer portal, Jackson Arnold officially has the keys to that Sooners offense. The departure of Gabriel, who ranks sixth in the nation for passing yards, certainly has the potential to cause disruption but Arnold has been generating a lot of hype at OU, and has an impressive arsenal at his beck and call.

Wide receivers Drake Stoops and Nic Anderson have 19 touchdowns between them, while running back Gavin Sawchuk has put up more than 100 rushing yards in four games on the bounce.

The Wildcats are 6-2 since Noah Fifita became their starting QB, and those two defeats could have gone either way. The 20-year-old was instrumental in turning around UA's fortunes, but Jedd Fisch's defense has also been sensational of late, restricting opponents to fewer than 20 points in three of their past six outings.

You’ll need to watch an Oklahoma vs Arizona live stream to see how the game plays out, and we’ve got all the details you need down below.
