This is essentially a playoff game for both teams. A win and they move on to the Big 12 Championship game; a loss effectively knocks them out.
Basically, if Oklahoma loses Texas would have to lose to Kansas. If West Virginia loses both Texas and Iowa State would have to lose in order to backdoor their way into the Big 12 title game.
So, again, this is effectively a playoff game win and you move on a loss and you are waiting for bowl season.
In a sense, Oklahoma last week showed why they might not be a playoff team even if they do win the Big 12. Their defense just isn’t up to snuff.
Giving up over 300 rushing yards and 40 points to Kansas is unacceptable. It’s one thing to give up points and yards to elite offenses like Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, West Virginia and the other powerhouse offenses in the Big 12, but Kansas isn’t in that class.
The argument will be that Oklahoma has a offense that can challenge the great defenses of Alabama, Clemson and Michigan, and that is true, but their defense is just ghastly.
Anyway, we’ll see what happens they have to beat a Mountaineers team on the road and that’s no easy feat. They should score their fair share of points on the Mountaineers, but they are give up a ton of points, as well.
West Virginia Mountaineers
The road has been unkind to West Virginia this year. They won two tough games in Lubbock and Austin, but then got smoked in Ames and lost a tough one in Stillwater.
This game against Oklahoma is in their friendly confides where they are undefeated and averaging 46 points per game at home and only giving up under 14 points per game. The Mountaineers have been a different beast at home.
Like Oklahoma, their strength is on the offensive side of the ball. Will Grier is a potential day one draft pick this upcoming draft with loads of talent in David Sills and Gary Jennings.
This is a senior heavy team and their time is now.

For me, I’ve got to go with the Mountaineers. I think they realize what’s at stake. If they don’t get an opportunity to play in the Big 12 championship game this year, it may be awhile before they get another shot.

Morgantown is underrated in terms of how difficult it is to play their. Oklahoma is one of the more talented teams in the nation they have a lot of big strong bodies in the trenches and plenty of speed to burn, but it just hasn’t translated on the defensive end like you would expect.
After giving up 40 points to a Kansas Jayhawk team, I just can’t trust them to go into Morgantown and get the win.
