OU-West Virginia: Our Picks

Oklahoma is a 17-point favorite. But the Sooners are down two defensive starters (Jalen Redmond and Woodi Washington). West Virginia shocked No. 15 Virginia Tech last week, and have the talent and the confidence to finally beat the Sooners. WVU’s defense ranks fourth in the nation in tackles for loss and No. 1 in the nation in red zone defense. So OU’s offensive line, which has been merely above average in its first three games, needs to be on point. Oklahoma might also need to win the turnover battle. If Spencer Rattler can raise his play to an elite level — read the coverages, manipulate the safeties and find the open receiver — OU has a shot to cover the spread and finally win a game comfortably. If he continues to play ordinary football, this one will go down to the final possession, just like the Tulane and Nebraska games did.

From the opening drive of Saturday’s game against the Oklahoma Sooners, the Nebraska Cornhuskers made their intentions known.

'I’m seeing it in slow motion': Why OU's D.J. Graham can handle rush of fame after epic interception

OU football: How Alex Grinch’s 2nd half threat motivated Speed D to finish shutout of Western Carolina

Wanting to keep a shutout intact, Alex Grinch needed to motivate his Speed D to finish. Western Carolina was moving the ball against No. 4 Oklahoma (2-0) better in the second half than it had in the first, when the Sooners held the Catamounts (0-2) to 68 yards. So OU’s defensive coordinator told his players they’d run extra in practice Monday if they allowed their FCS opponent to score a touchdown. He wanted them to keep their foot on the gas after watching them relent during the second half of their season opener against Tulane.
