How to watch Oklahoma vs. West Virginia football game
No. 5 Oklahoma (home) vs. West Virginia (away)
Current Records: Oklahoma 6-0-0; West Virginia 3-3-0
Oklahoma won both of their matches against West Virginia last season (59-31 and 59-56) and is aiming for the same result this time around. Oklahoma and West Virginia will face off in a Big 12 battle at noon ET on Saturday at Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. The Sooners are coming into the game hot, having won six in a row.
The oddsmakers expected fireworks between Oklahoma and Texas, but the 78-point over/under wound up being a bit inflated. Oklahoma came out on top against Texas by a score of 34-27 on Saturday. QB Jalen Hurts had a stellar game for the Sooners as he picked up 131 yards on the ground on 17 carries and threw three passing touchdowns. Near the top of the highlight reel was Hurts' 51-yard TD bomb to WR CeeDee Lamb in the third quarter.
Meanwhile, it was all tied up 14-14 at halftime, but West Virginia was not quite Iowa State's equal in the second half when they met. The Mountaineers suffered a grim 38-14 defeat to Iowa State. If West Virginia was hoping to take revenge for the 30-14 loss against Iowa State the last time the teams met, then they were left disappointed.
Oklahoma's win lifted them to 6-0 while West Virginia's defeat dropped them down to 3-3. A couple offensive stats to keep an eye on: Oklahoma rank first in the league when it comes to yards per game, with 621.7 on average. Less enviably, the Mountaineers are seventh worst in the nation in rushing yards per game, with only 94.3 on average. So the cards are definitely stacked against the Mountaineers.

The Sooners look to stay unbeaten against a banged-up West Virginia tea
After scoring a huge win over Texas last week in the Red River Showdown, No. 5 Oklahoma is right back at it in Big 12 play hosting West Virginia on Saturday. While the Sooners don't have much to gain with a win over the Mountaineers, a loss could be catastrophic for their hopes to reach the College Football Playoff once again in 2019.
Does West Virginia have a chance to pull the upset, or will the Mountaineers go 0-for-3 during October? This team doesn't have a lot of depth, and injuries on both sides of the ball are starting to pile up. This has been a particularly difficult month, too, because the 'Eers have played, or will play, the four best teams in the conference.
Here's how to watch Saturday's game between West Virginia and Oklahoma, and the storylines to follow.
Oklahoma: There's two things I'd like to see out of the Sooners this week. First, can quarterback Jalen Hurts cut back on the mistakes after being careless with the ball in the red zone against Texas? He still got his yards and touchdowns, but his decision-making needs to be on the mend after two bad turnovers. Second, how does Oklahoma's defense perform against an undermanned opponent? That side of the ball was the story in the win over the Longhorns, but how do they follow it up? First-year defensive coordinator Alex Grinch has been Broyles Award-worthy, and a nice next step would be to completely shut down a massive underdog at home.
West Virginia: We'll see how much of a difference it makes, but the Mountaineers' quarterback situation is up in the air. Starter Austin Kendall suffered a chest injury in the loss to Iowa State, and is questionable for Saturday. However, coach Neal Brown didn't commit to backup Jack Allison, either. There is the possibility that redshirt freshman Trey Lowe could start. Either way, West Virginia's offense will have a week to work out the kinks it couldn't in real time against the Cyclones. But the sobering reality is that Oklahoma is scoring twice as many points per game as the Mountaineers. While West Virginia's defense has been better than the numbers indicate, it'll have to play the best game of the season to even give the offense a shot. And the 'Eers are banged up on that side of the ball, too, with the season-ending injury to linebacker VanDarius Cowan.
Bless West Virginia's hearts. The Mountaineers play hard, and Brown and this coaching staff are doing what they can. But an already rough quarterback situation just got harder with Kendall's injury, and there simply isn't a lot of depth across the board. Short of Oklahoma playing its absolute worst, I'm not sure there's a way West Virginia sniffs an upset. As for the spread, 33.5 points is a lot, but I just don't know where the points are coming from for the 'Eers. Pick: Oklahoma -33.5
