The Oklahoma Sooners got the win over Big 12 foe West Virginia, but it was hardly convincing, and for the second straight week, they won a game despite the offense struggling to score.
West Virginia’s defense is good, but Oklahoma failed to capitalize on opportunities where receivers ran open or got behind the defense. The offensive line struggled in both the run game and in pass protection, and Spencer Rattler didn’t look like the same player he was last year. And yet, despite all of that, the Sooners’ offense came up with a drive at the end of the game to get the win on a Gabe Brkic 30-yard field goal.
Despite the win, the Sooners dropped one spot in the poll as Oregon replaced Oklahoma at no. 3 in the latest USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll.
On the bright side, the Oklahoma defense continues to prove they’re legit as they held a good Mountaineers running game in check.
