MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The 2-1 Mountaineers have landed in Norman, Ok., hoping for a chance at the team’s first road win in six games. WVU head coach Neal Brown is seeking not only to quell his road loss streak, but also to bring a regular season, road win back from Norman for the first time since 1982. Brown and his team are set to face the No. 4 Oklahoma Sooners at 7:30 p.m EST.

The beginning of conference play, this game could be the season turning point in a West Virginia team that is flying high off an upset of No. 15 Virginia Tech at home. Jarret Doege stringing together meaningful, long-distance yardage to his wide outs could keep the pressure off Leddie Brown, who already has 265 rushing yards on 51 attempts. Even if this game isn’t a Mountaineer W, this is a good chance to solidify the twos and work on aspects of the offensive scheme that have been lacking through three weeks against not only a ranked opponent, but one with whom Mountaineer fans are well-acquainted.
West Virginia is 6-3 overall in Big 12 Conference openers, including 1-2 on the road. The last time WVU football opened its conference action with Oklahoma was in 2015, to the tune of a Week 4 loss in Norman to a then-ranked No. 15 Sooner roster, 44-24.
