Oklahoma Sooners

vs

West Virginia Mountaineers
Saturday, September 20, 2014 7:30 PM ET
Mountaineer Field at Milan Puskar Stadium

 

The Mountaineers return home on a high note, following their 40-37 upset victory over Maryland in Week 2.

The win moved West Virginia to 2-1 SU and 3-0 ATS on the season; the first time they have covered three in a row since 2012. But the Mountaineers have had far less luck against Big 12 opponents, 1-6 SU and ATS in their last seven.

The 3-0 Sooners head to West Virginia 5-2 ATS in their last seven as a road favorite, but have disappointed bettors in their recent outings against the Mountaineers, failing to cover in their last three meetings.
