WVU football at Oklahoma matchup preview
WVU’s Big 12 Championship aspirations are still alive, but they certainly hinge on this weekend’s road test at No. 17 Oklahoma.
The Sooners were a surefire top-10 team for the first seven weeks of the year before recently dropping back-to-back games against Kansas and Oklahoma State. Still, Oklahoma is slotted as the No. 4 team in the Big 12.
Redshirt senior quarterback Dillon Gabriel is the heartbeat of the conference’s No. 1 offense that is averaging 39.9 points and 490 yards per game. The Sooners haven’t scored less than 20 points in any game this season.
Gabriel also leads all Big 12 quarterbacks in passing yards per game (312.8).
On defense, Oklahoma is one of four Big 12 teams allowing fewer than 135 rushing yards per game to opponents. They also allow the third-fewest points per game (20.7) in the conference.
WVU enters the game with one of the hottest rushing attacks in the Big 12. Last week’s 336 rushing yards as a team were the most in a game since 2016, and 567 total yards accounted for the team’s best performance since 2018.
Only UCF and Cincinnati are rushing for more yards per game than WVU in the Big 12.
