UNDER a Shockingly Strong Play Between Okie State, WVU

Offense has been hard to come by when West Virginia and Oklahoma State have faced off. The UNDER is 4-1 between the Mountaineers and Cowboys since WVU joined the Big 12 in 2012 and has cashed in each of the past four. Could offense be an issue when West Virginia hosts Oklahoma State this Saturday?

Shark Bites
  • West Virginia is 12-1 SU in its last 13 games at home.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 21 of West Virginia’s last 30 games against the Big 12.
  • Oklahoma State is 13-2 SU in its last 15 games on the road.

Quarterback Mason Rudolph powered Oklahoma State over West Virginia last season, as the signal-caller completed 26 of 36 passes with three touchdowns. Ultimately, though, it was West Virginia that produced more offensive yardage than the explosive Okie State squad.

How Oklahoma State bounces back after last week’s mediocre performance against Texas will be interesting. The Cowboys offense sputtered to just 13 points, the fewest it has tallied since November 15, 2014 – which also happened to be against Texas. That was just the beginning of a brutal stretch that continues the next two weeks with games at West Virginia and vs Oklahoma.

West Virginia’s offense has really started humming thanks to the skills of Will Grier. The QB has accounted for 727 passing yards with 10 touchdowns and one interception in WVU’s past two games. However, the defense has been a major concern, as it has allowed 71 points and 1,010 yards in the same two-game span.
