There’s no doubt that Oklahoma State and the Mountaineers have two of the top quarterbacks and offenses in the entire country this year. Will Grier leads the nation in total touchdowns and Mason Rudolf leads the country in passing yards.
If there is one team in the Big XII more balance then the Mountaineers, it’s Oklahoma State. Their leading rusher Justice Hill has racked up a conference-best 750 yards on the ground and Cowboys wideout James Washington is No. 2 in the country in reception yards (914). The Mountaineers probably have more depth at the wideout position, however, in David Sills, Gary Jennings, and KaRaun White.
Oklahoma State has scored more than 30 points in every game up until the Texas game. Their average is 43.7 points per game. The Mountaineers have been a high scoring machine in each of their wins, scoring at an average of 51 points in their wins and 43.3 in total.
In order for WVU to stop Oklahoma State’s offense, they need to basically stop everything, but most importantly take the balance away. WVU has fallen asleep in at least a half of each of their games. If they do that in this game, Oklahoma State will make them pay. WVU also needs to bring balance to their offense back. They need to get Justin Crawford more engaged in the game because only 4 times has Oklahoma State let a pass go for a touchdown.
I expect this game to be close throughout and I would bet the over if you’re one to bet. This game I predict will end up 52-48 and I’ll give WVU the edge because they need a marquee win and they’re in Milan Puskar Stadium.
The game is at noon est on ABC.
