Oklahoma will have its first 100-yard rusher this game. . . . I’m recycling this one from last week. Without Ford, Perine and Ross should receive more carries – and Perine will receive a bulk of them. If he nears 20 carries, he should surpass the 100-yard mark.
West Virginia will not turn the ball over. . . . This is more about the end of Oklahoma’s streak than the surprise that the Mountaineers will actually take care of the football. The Mountaineers’ offense isn’t designed to take chances. This might come as a surprise to some though, since West Virginia has given away the third-most turnovers in the conference.
Neither Kevin White nor Sterling Shepard will lead the game in receiving yards . . . Shepard and White are two of only three receivers in the Big 12 that are averaging more than 100 yards per game. Both defenses have to know this and will want to take their opposition’s top target out of the game.
What are your predictions?
