The kickoff time for the tilt between the Oklahoma Sooners and West Virginia Mountaineers has been announced, and for the second consecutive week, OU has been given the prime time slot on ABC.

I’m sure the limited-capacity crowd in Morgantown will be thoroughly buzzed for this one, but the young Spencer Rattler should be up to the challenge at this point. Additionally, the WVU offense (No. 75 in offensive SP+) has done nothing to prove that it can pose a threat to Alex Grinch’s defensive unit. That is, of course, unless OU fails to avoid costly lapses in judgement *cough* Bookie *cough* or the ‘Speed D’ experiences a post-Bedlam hangover. On paper, the Sooners should be able to take care of business without much drama, and it will most likely play out that way if OU can at least break even in the turnover department.
