The West Virginia Mountaineers head to Norman, OK to take on the Oklahoma Sooners in a Big-12 conference matchup on Saturday, September 25th at 7:30 ET. The game is scheduled to air on ABC.

The Mountaineers are coming off of a big upset win against then-ranked #15 Virginia Tech. After a season-opening loss to Maryland, West Virginia beat Long Island University 66-0 and then Virginia Tech 27-21. This has them with great momentum heading into this important conference game. Senior running back Leddie Brown had a great game against Virginia Tech, rushing 19 times for 161 yards and a touchdown. If the Mountaineers want to put up a fight in this one, he will be instrumental to their game plan.

The Sooners won a close game against an old rival in Week 3. While it was close the whole game, the Sooners did just enough to beat Nebraska 23-16. The Sooners remain undefeated, but they have narrow wins against Tulane and Nebraska with a blowout 76-0 win against Western Carolina sandwiched in the middle. Quarterback Spencer Rattler has dropped to third in the favorites for the Heisman voting after a pedestrian game of just 214 yards and a touchdown. The Sooners did manage the game clock well, but their offense is going to need to reawaken against the Mountaineers so they aren’t shocked by an upset in this one.
