It was another rough outing for the Oklahoma Sooners offense, but the defense rose to the occasion in a tight 16-13 win over West Virginia. When it mattered most, the Sooners and Spencer Rattler provided the drive of the game as they methodically moved the ball down the field from their own eight-yard line into position to give Gabe Brkic a chance to win the game.

And Brkic did what Brkic did, nailing the 30-yard field goal for the game-winner as time expired.

During the game, a segment of Sooners fans in attendance began chanting for Caleb Williams to replace Spencer Rattler. While Rattler and the offense were certainly struggling a bit with West Virginia’s defense, it was never so bad that Rattler needed to be replaced.

The running game was as big of an issue as anything. That goes to the offensive line’s inability to move the line of scrimmage or set the edge against a very good defensive front for the West Virginia Mountaineers.

While there were some understandably frustrated with the play of Spencer Rattler and the offense, there were others still supportive of the Oklahoma Sooners starting quarterback.

Football is a team game, and while Rattler needs to be better, he also needs some help. While the quarterback gets all of the focus, even the best will struggle if the offensive line is struggling or if receivers aren’t getting open.

There were inconsistencies throughout the offense last night, and a lot of that credit has to go to West Virginia for coming in with a solid game plan and executing it to the frustration of the Sooners’ offense.
