It was snowing. It was cold, the crowd was lit (at least till the second quarter). The second half wasn’t pretty, but in the end who can really complain about a 56-28 beatdown in Morgantown. Here are some quick thoughts on the game

Run, Run, Run

The Sooners amassed 316 yards on the ground on an astounding 64 carries. Perine had 160 yards and Mixon added another 147. Sooners offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley leaned on the run early and often.

Sluggish Second Half

The Second Half was rough by anyone standards. I firmly believe the Sooners were lax on both sides of the ball and it showed. West Virginia slowly but surely climbed back into the game.

Defensive Issues Still Linger

It’s never good when you give up 388 yards rushing on the ground. If it weren’t for multiple West Virginia miscues (penalties and turnovers), this game would have likely been VERY different.

Trash Talk

West Virginia players talked all sorts of trash leading up to this game, but ultimately it led to them being ridiculous on the field. Multiple late hits, personal fouls, and an undisciplined West Virginia team was costly.

Bedlam

It’s for all the Big 12 marbles and who knows maybe even a playoff.
