Morgantown WV – It was a thing of beauty if you wanted to see touchdown after touchdown being put up on the scoreboard tonight. If you were hoping for even the slightest bit of defense being played, you went tonight feeling like someone punched you in the gut.
Both No. 6 Oklahoma and No. 12 WVU have been accused of just handing both points and yards to opponents like they were free gifts at Santa’s workshops around their respective towns.
Ironically though, a few clutch defensive plays have Oklahoma playing for the 2018 Big 12 championship next week in Texas v Texas. This will be their 4th in a row incredibly.
The Sooners beat No. 12 West Virginia tonight in a slugfest 59-56 reserving their spot in next week’s Big 12 title game.
Oklahoma finishes the regular season at the 11-1, 8-1 mark ranked No 6. The Sooners outlasted the Mountaineers tonight in a wild yet brilliant display of offensive efforts by both them and WVU.
The offensive onslaught by both teams gagedan incredible 1,372 yards of total offense. The Sooners also kept its College Football Playoff chances alive with this win.
With the individual effort on the offensive side of the ball, the Sooners Murray went 20/27, 364 yards and three touchdown passes.
West Virginia’s Will Grier threw for 4 touchdowns, a career high 539 yards on 32/49 passing. However, Will Grier did lose two huge fumbles, both of which were returned for touchdowns. The second one could be noted as having kept the Sooners up for good.
West Virginia will fall in the AP Top 25 but, should maintain a top-20 ranking hopefully. The Sooners will play in the Big 12 Championships next week in Arlington TX v the Texas Longhorns. WVU will wait to see what bowl(s) they are invited to.
