Free Week 5 NCAA Football Prediction
West Virginia looked extremely well on both sides of the ball in their win over Maryland. However, they’ll be going up against a much stronger and more physical team in the Sooners. They’ll have to find a way to contain Mayfield and put a lot pressure on him, or it will be a long afternoon.
