PICK: I’m staying with Oklahoma. The Sooners lost to a pretty good Baylor team in their last outing, but there’s plenty to be hopeful about. Oklahoma notched 499 total yards, 29 first downs and a nice 10-of-15 rate on third-down tries. Oklahoma suffered from their eight penalties and three picks, though.
As for West Virginia, they came up with just 200 total yards, 11 first downs and 2-of-12 on third-down tries in their loss to Iowa State so there’s plenty to work on this week. I don’t think the Mountaineers will rally themselves well enough to cover here.
