The chaos of last week opened things up a smidge for Oklahoma as the most likely B12 champion.
The number of potential undefeated conference champs was reduced significantly and if they can play out their final games at a high level, and get some help, you never know.
With just one conference loss the Mountaineers are right there in terms of possibly taking the B12 crown this season.
This team is not all that impressive but if they win this one they could easily finish the season with just one loss.
Either way they have a great chance of racking up double digit victories for the first time since they joined the conference.
Since conference play started the Sooners have been on a role. They have won all seven of their conference game, all but two by a touchdown or more.
Over that span Baker Mayfield has really been great, only once throwing for less than 250 yards – that was against Kansas in a game where they probably could have run the ball every play and still won by 30 points.
The offense has scored 34 or more points in every B12 game and is 9th in the country at 44ppg. They are balanced and tough to stop.
The defense has been the Achilles heel of this team. Houston and Ohio State exposed it in their losses and they have given up 40 or more points in three of their conference games.
They are terrible against the pass which is in part due to teams playing from behind so much. They have been especially bad defensively on the road.
They can’t keep relying on the offense to bail them out.
West Virginia Mountaineers
Last year was WVU’s best since joining the conference but this year they are poised to rise even higher. It helps that the league is down a little bit but at the same time this is a solid Mountaineers team.
Their 4-5 ATS record shows that they are not exactly living up to expectations but they are getting the job done in terms of wins and losses. Perhaps enough to get Dana Holgorsen off the hot seat.
QB Skyler Howard has been a very effective and steady hand in his senior season so they are a live dog here.
Even though they give up a bunch of yards (64th) the Mountaineers are stingy when it comes to points (19th) at just over 20ppg.
They are not a team that puts a lot of pressure on you but they are getting a great senior campaign from CB Rasul Douglas.
He has great size for a corner and this year has really upped his game with 6 interceptions including one for a TD.
They need their pass defense to be sharp on Saturday.

On paper this looks like Oklahoma should win fairly easily. I am not sure I see an area where they are not better than West Virginia and I am not sure the location tips the scales all that much.
They definitely have a lot more to play for at this point too.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Oklahoma -3
The thing that makes OU so difficult to defend is that they are an elite passing team with a strong running game.
They are not the only team in the country like that but there are not many and not with the overall talent level that Oklahoma has.
They are going to test that West Virginia defense for sure.
