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.
