FINAL: West Virginia 23, Oklahoma 20
FIELD GOAL WEST VIRGINIA (23-20 – 0:00): The Mountaineers win! Garrett Greene leads the Mountaineers on a methodical six-plus minute drive to wind the clock down and set Casey Legg up for a 25-yard game-winning field goal. WVU earns its first win over Oklahoma in the Big 12.
TOUCHDOWN WEST VIRGINIA (20-20 – 11:20): Greene does it again. The speedy quarterback leads WVU on a 12-play, 72-yard drive and punctuates it with an 11-yard touchdown run. Sam James makes a couple of big plays for WVU, including a fake punt run to keep the series alive and a 35-yard reception. Greene now has 102 rushing yards and a pair of touchdowns to lead WVU’s offense.
END 3Q: Oklahoma holds a one-score lead over WVU at 20-13, while the Mountaineers start the final quarter with possession of the ball.
TOUCHDOWN OKLAHOMA (20-13 – 1:22): The Sooners go 59 yards in seven plays and move the last 29 yards in just three snaps. Eric Gray scores his second touchdown of the game and gets his yardage total up to 171 yards. OU goes for two and converts, going up by seven after the stolen two-point conversion in the first half.
TOUCHDOWN WEST VIRGINIA (13-12 – 3:36): West Virginia finds the first points of the half with an eight-yard connection between Garrett Greene and Bryce Ford-Wheaton. The drive goes 63 yards in 12 plays and gets a big boost from Greene and Jaylen Anderson’s run game. OU also extends the drive with a 15-yard facemask penalty early in the series.
HALF: WVU holds Oklahoma on the final drive of the half, but heads to the locker room down 12-6. The Mountaineers will receive the second half kickoff.
TOUCHDOWN WEST VIRGINIA (12-6 – 0:33): Garrett Greene leads WVU on its first scoring drive, eventually punching the score in from five yards out. The Sooners steal two points on the conversion, though, as Kolton McGhee fumbles the snap and it’s returned Billy Bowman.
TOUCHDOWN OKLAHOMA (10-0 – 1:06): West Virginia punter Oklahoma pins the Sooners inside their own five yard line. That doesn’t fade OU — the Sooners need just four plays to gain 96 yards and score the first touchdown of the game. Marvin Mims atones for a wide-open drop earlier in the quarter as he sets up the score with a 67-yard reception. Eric Gray punches it in from 12 yards out.
FIELD GOAL OKLAHOMA (3-0 – 9:42): The Sooners break the tie with a 32-yard field goal by Schmit. That caps off a 9-play, 75-yard drive that nearly ended in a touchdown, but the score was called back after a review for offensive pass interference. The Sooner pass game hasn’t worked tonight, as 110 of their 151 yards have come on the ground, including a 54-yard dash by Eric Gray on this drive.
END 1Q: Neither offense has been able to break through and find points. WVU and Oklahoma head to the second quarter scoreless — but Garrett Greene is in at quarterback as the Mountaineers look for a spark.
13:36: Oklahoma goes tempo in its first drive, running four plays in the first 40 seconds of the game. The WVU defense toughens up as it’s pushed into its own territory and forces OU to try a field goal, but Zach Schmit tries a 54-yarder that falls well short of the goalpost.
Oklahoma has won the toss and elects to receive the opening kickoff.
