The Sooners are halfway to a perfect regular season after their 34-27 win over Texas. Quarterback Jalen Hurts, the dual-threat transfer from Alabama, is proving why he’s one of the biggest talents at the position in the country. He threw for 235 yards with three touchdowns and added 131 yards on the ground and one score.
Wideout CeeDee Lamb caught all three of Hurts’ touchdowns while also grabbing seven more balls for a total of 171 yards.
As you’d expect, the Sooners are massive favorites at home against a .500 team with oddsmakers favoring them by 33.5 points.
West Virginia has a lot of work to do if they’re going to pull off the upset. The Mountaineers are coming off a disappointing 38-14 loss to Iowa State last weekend in which they managed a measly 41 total rushing yards. Couple that with quarterback Jack Allison only throwing for 140 yards, and it’s easy to see why the Mountaineers average just 24.2 points and 326.2 yards per game. Needless to say, they’ll need a remarkable turnaround in performance to challenge the dynamic Sooners.
