Over on the West Virginia side, it’s been an up-and-down season on a 5-4 campaign so far. The Mountaineers are just 2-2 in their last four games, beating Kansas State 37-10 and TCU 24-6 while otherwise falling to Texas 17-13 and Iowa State 42-6.
In the blowout loss to the Cyclones, West Virginia quarterback Jarret Doege threw for 209 yards on 21-of-41 passing. Leddie Brown led an anemic rush with 14 carries for 48 yards, and Sean Ryan added 79 yards on five receptions.
The Sooners are 5-1 ATS in the last six overall and 5-1 ATS in the last six conference games. Oklahoma is 4-1 ATS in their last five after a straight-up win and 2-5 ATS in the last seven after an ATS loss.
Meanwhile, West Virginia is 4-0 ATS in their last four after an ATS loss and 5-0 ATS in their last five after a straight-up loss. The Mountaineers are 5-0-1 ATS in their last six home games and 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 overall.
PICK: I’m going to stick with Oklahoma here. The Mountaineers have managed a few pretty good offensive outings this season, but they’ve generally come against bad teams. West Virginia managed just six points versus Iowa State and 13 versus Texas. Considering the Sooners have given up just 36 combined points over their last three games, this one stacks up pretty heavily in Oklahoma’s favor. The line is going to be huge everywhere, though.
