The Voice of Morgantown’s staff picks the winner of today’s game against the West Virginia Mountaineers and the Oklahoma Sooners.
MORGANTOWN, West Virginia — The West Virginia Mountaineers (6-3, 4-2) travel to play the Oklahoma Sooners (7-2, 4-2) in another huge Big 12 Conference game for Neal Brown and the Mountaineers. Oklahoma has lost two consecutive games and West Virginia has won 3 straight games, but the Sooners opened as 13 point favorites over the Mountaineers today. Here’s how our experts think the game will play out today:
Wyatt Coffman, Graphic Designer, The Voice of Morgantown, 2-3
West Virginia has the opportunity to do something very special tonight. Garrett Greene seems to shine against the Sooners and has his chance to make WVU history tonight. If West Virginia wins, they will likely finish 9-3 on the year. This could be a huge statement game for Neal Brown as his squad was picked last and projected to go 4-8 this season. Oklahoma has lost 2 straight and is back home, at night, on their turf. This will be no easy game by any means for West Virginia. I think WVU comes out slow but picks it up in the second quarter. However, it’s hard for me to see Oklahoma losing three straight games, especially at home. I think Oklahoma will unfortunately overpower the Mountaineers late in the game and secure the win.

Every part of me wants to take the Sooners here. This feels set up to be your typical big WVU game that we end up giving away and losing in heartbreaking fashion. However, I’m choosing to give this team the benefit of the doubt. We should have beaten Oklahoma in Norman 2 years ago, and after finally beating them in Morgantown last year, I think Neal Brown and the boys get the job done and hand Oklahoma their third straight loss.
WVU 38 Oklahoma 34
Clark Johnson, Senior Writer, The Voice of Morgantown, 6-3
I have a feeling something special will happen today. But I won’t let it affect my prediction. At the end of the day, Oklahoma just has too much talent. Please prove this prediction wrong, boys.
WVU 28 Oklahoma 38
Brad Smith, Publisher, The Voice of Morgantown, 6-3
I’ve never trusted the climb and never will, but I do trust Garrett Greene, the incredible running back corps, the talented and experienced offensive line and the over-achieving defense of the Mountaineers this season. Oklahoma has proven that they are beatable and West Virginia gets Neal Brown his first program-defining win at West Virginia. 9-3 is a real possibillity now.
WVU 48 Oklahoma 41
