That closing stretch is brutal for OU. They have to play the three best teams, two of them on the road. I don't think they make it to the end of the season unscathed, so the conference championship probably comes down to who they lose to.
WVU is a different animal at home.
WVU has 2 wins over ranked teams, VT(15) and ISU(22).
WVU has won 2 in a row and the offense has been in high gear past 2 games.
New play caller last 2 games fwiw.
WVU rolled up 492 yards against ISU, the only other team to do the was OU with Kyler Murray.
I think you guys will win. You've had out number and WVU is still very young. But id expect a fight.
I wouldn't count out ISU. They may be down, but hardly out. They could very well beat OU and end the regular season with 2 in conference losses. With OU having BU, ISU, and OSU left, there's a very good possibility they lose 1 of those games. There is also that Sooner Magic Home Cooking that seems to aid them this time of year.
I like our chances. We should beat WVU, TCU, and TTU. None of them will be gimme games, but we should win, if we can get a little of that Kansas game production going in our remaining games. We have a shot, a very good shot of playing OU twice in the same year. And if we do, I want to win AT LEAST the last game against them.
ISU had our full attention as well. This game worries me to the same degree the ISU game worried me. If this team can’t make up for the ISU loss by beating WVU, then simply put, the aren’t a championship caliber team. They’re getting two bites at the championship apple!
