Oklahoma Sooners open as touchdown favorites ahead of road trip to Morgantown

The Oklahoma Sooners (5-4, 2-4 Big 12) look to get back in the win column this week when they travel to Morgantown to face the West Virginia Mountaineers (3-6, 1-5).

West Virginia has been one of the more curious teams in Big 12 play this year. They’ve played some good games, beating Baylor at home 43-40 and Virginia Tech in Blacksburg. But they’ve also had some headscratchers like this past week in Ames, where they lost 31-14.

Oklahoma is coming off a disappointing loss of their own, where miscues and turnovers kept them from finding enough momentum to win the game. The Sooners had three interceptions and several penalties that led to points for the Bears. How the Sooners bounce back from a game in which the head coach cited a lack of discipline will be the story to watch this week as the Sooners head to Morgantown.

The Sooners have won nine-straight games against the West Virginia Mountaineers and open as 7.5-point favorites on the road. This looks like a great opportunity for Oklahoma to rebound.
